Review of Seminar hosted by Chris Friedman in New York City

Posted on December 16th, 2008 by emeric

I personally didn’t attend the event and I haven’t heard anyone talk about the event from the forums.  From what I know though, they did post a video of the seminar online.  It’s not the whole thing, mostly a bunch of bits and pieces.  But it looks elementary, naive, and some parts incorrect.   I was […]

Old School Lei Tai Competition Revived

Posted on September 13th, 2008 by emeric

This is how people in old China used to compete to see who had the best Kungfu or who’s Kungfu was the best style. As Jet Li put it in his movie “Fearless”, I agree that there isn’t a dominant form of Kungfu or martial arts, it’s the person that matters. But Shuaijiao obviously wins […]

Mongolian Shuaijiao (Bohk)

Posted on August 27th, 2008 by emeric

Bohk has been around for hundreds of years but I’m not sure where it dates back to. It’s Mongolia’s version of Shuaijiao although Mongolia still does compete in more traditional Chinese Shuaijiao tournaments. The main difference you can see is their attire. They were similar jackets but are collarless and shorter. They also don’t wear […]

Shuaijiao Japanese Style Part. II (Judo)

Posted on August 20th, 2008 by emeric

So this is Shuaijiao in Japan Part. II: Judo. From what I’ve been reading on forums around, everyone always tries and compares the two and which one is better because one does something better or the other is flawed in this type of skill…etc. But I’m not here to talk about that. They are both […]

To Shuaijiao or to Shuai Chiao?

Posted on August 14th, 2008 by emeric

So I’ve realized that I’m not very consistent in my efforts to try and stick with one name for Shuaijiao/Shuai Chiao or whatever I’ve been calling it.  I’ve been trying to have consistent typography on this site but it seems like a useless effort.  It’s a translation so whatever right?  Eh… So right now I’m […]

Shuaijiao Japanese Style Part. I (Sumo)

Posted on August 13th, 2008 by emeric

So I’ve been thinking of doing some sort or research for wrestling styles similar to Shuaijiao around the world, or presenting a different country that does Shuaijiao every week.  Either/Or this is some fun research and timely study.  But to start off on the easy side, lets talk about SUMO!  This is basically a follow-up […]

The Brazilians, A Force to be Wrecken’ With!

Posted on August 6th, 2008 by emeric

It’s been a few years since I’ve been back to Brazil to fight in their annual Shuai Chiao tournament. If you haven’t been yet, which would probably be most of you guys, you definitely need to train hard and tryout for the US team one of these days and make a trip down there to […]
