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.

Camera Man Getting Thrown

Posted on October 15th, 2009 by henry

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 […]

Cute Kid Doing Shuai Jiao

Posted on August 19th, 2009 by emeric

From one of my subscriptions on YouTube. Cute kid, great Shuaijiao skills. What’s not to like? He’s going to be a beast one day. Video description: “This is my son and I demonstrating shuai chiao in Taipei, Taiwan. He just turned 4 years old and is doing pretty well for his age….” The main guy’s […]

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 […]

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 […]

So I was recently back home in San Jose for the 4th of July weekend seeing friends and the mom and pops and I came across an old, but fairly recent, picture of me in my competition in Brazil. I’m not sure what throw i was trying to do but it looked like an attempt […]

From the archives of wizcoolc on Youtube, a video of some memorizing training at the Tian Qi Shuaijiao school in Beijing.  Nice way to lift weights without having to actually lift weights.

An Interesting Shuaijiao Tournament Clip from Unknown Location

Posted on May 24th, 2008 by emeric

I was just browsing youtube (my username is to3mo by the way if you want to add me) and i came across this very interesting video. They are having a Shuaijiao competition on a Leitai (raised platform, in Chinese) and that seems old school crazy. I’ve never seen it, but maybe that’s how they do […]
