Promoting Shuaijiao is important. I haven’t paid enough attention to this part of my life. I had a moment today when I realized how important Shuaijiao and the people I have met through Shuaijiao are to me.

Posted on February 2nd, 2010 by Michael Wix

Greetings from cold and windy Seoul. I should be searching out  for traditional Korean wrestling venues here, but I’m swamped with work right now and its absolutely freezing this week. I might try on the weekend. From my cozy hotel room I just visited the Beijing Wrestling Soho page and discovered some awesome photos posted by one of […]

Eight Step Praying Mantis

Posted on January 5th, 2010 by emeric

Giving some props to our kungfu brothers. I’ve only fought 2 praying mantis style students in shuaijiao and they’re not too shabby.  The throws in this video are shuaijiao worthy.  I’d like to see more of them compete in shuaijiao tournaments.

New Karate Kid Movie Trailer

Posted on December 22nd, 2009 by emeric

I’m not sure if the movie can still be named “karate kid” since it’s based in china, so it’d be more like “kungfu kid”, but the trailer makes me want to watch the movie regardless of name. I’ve always been a fan.

This is obviously staged, but still pretty funny. The story is that Michael Douglas visited Taiwan not long ago and saw “Animal” Wu (the man throwing in the video) demonstrating Shuai Jiao. Michael was a little intimidated by the performance, so his friends decided to film this video and e-mail it to him. He has […]

Secret Style from the Yang Family?

Posted on August 16th, 2009 by henry

As many of us know, Yang style is the most widely practiced form of Taijiquan in the world. However, some sources claim that it may not be what it seems. According to Scott Rodell from the March 1993 edition of Inside Kung-Fu magazine, Yang Lu Chan was faced with a lose or lose situation when […]

The Many Rules and Systems of Shuaijiao Competitions

Posted on February 17th, 2009 by emeric

(WARNING LONG POST) I’ve been recently thinking of the different rules I’ve been under during Shuaijiao competitions around the world and I’ve always thought, why are there so many different rules of Shuaijiao and why are there so many different ways to win or lose a competition? From Brazil, California, Ohio, to Taiwan, the most […]
