Who hasn’t seen the documentaries showing scores of people, mostly the elderly, lining the parks of China at the crack of dawn moving in concert slowly and harmoniously? A beautiful dance of balance and grace. Meditation in motion. This is today’s familiar face of Tai Chi.
Did you know that Tai Chi has another face, it’s original face . It was created for the same reason that all other martial arts were formed and that is for combat. Yes Tai Chi has a down and dirty side and this is it’s original purpose. The Tai Chi practiced as seen in the parks today is a recent creation.
“It’s too slow.” This is the comment made by most casual observers when they see the Tai Chi form being practiced and someone tells them that it’s a fighting art.
There has always been limited talk about Tai Chi being a fighting art but rarely has it been demonstrated as such outside of a few pushing methods. After watching Internal Damage: Advanced Tai Chi Chuan for Combat, you’ll know for sure that Tai Chi combat entails more than a push or two.
This video, a joint collaboration of Ramcity Productions and Specialist Defensive Training Co., shows with astonishing clarity, the effectiveness and combat genius of Tai Chi. The result is a realistic display of punishing self-defense methods that are not only highly effective but will also deliver deeper insights into just what the art really is. This dynamic, pulse pounding, training video displays masterful street worthy applications of the Tai Chi system and the hard pumping soundtrack will have you out of your seat training along.
