We like: Yantai TV Tanglang Quan Documentary 烟台电视台《螳螂拳》

Nice short documentary about Tanglang Quan. They talk a little about the origins and characteristics of the general style as well as the four big sub-styles. Their four consist of: Taiji, Taiji Meihua, Qixing, and Liuhe Tanglang. Some might substitute Taiji with Babu here. I guess they made this choice, since it’s a mainland documentary (from Yantai) and Babu is not very big there. Anyway, prepare for some nice demonstrations. However, I have to add that I personally didn’t enjoy the Meihua in this video that much.

We like: Traditional Kung Fu and the Mixed Martial Arts Evolution

Here’s a nice and short two parted post on traditional CMA and MMA. Michael goes into a very nice discussion on goals and expectations of training each martial art. In the second part he also explains the tension between practical and practicable and shares some characteristics of CMA, specifically Mantis Boxing in more detail:

A majority of the striking techniques include a form of “trapping” or clinch striking.  This allows a measure of control without disabling mobility to address other potential threats sequentially.  Mantis Boxing specifically includes “knockdown” throws that allows a free flow of striking without deviating etoro from the neutral position as required by throws such as the uchi mata or  hip throws.  The ability to maintain an upright position following a knockdown increases the effectiveness of fighting sequential opponents through efficiency of movemeent.  Clinch striking coupled with knockdowns makes Mantis Boxing highly combat effective.

We highly recommend you to go and read both posts:

We like: Gracie vs. Kimura Mini Documentary

We like this short documentary of the famous Gracie vs. Kimura fight in 1951. Of course (like in most publications by the Gracies) it is biased and some facts (like the “80 pounds” heavier Kimura) are wrong but it is nevertheless entertaining.

The whole story described by Kimura:

“20,000 people came to see the bout including President of Brazil. Helio was 180cm and 80 kg. When I entered the stadium, I found a coffin. I asked what it was. I was told, “This is for Kimura. Helio brought this in.” It was so funny that I almost burst into laughter. As I approached the ring, raw eggs were thrown at me. The gong rang. Helio grabbed me in both lapels, and attacked me with O-soto-gari and Kouchi-gari. But they did not move me at all. Now it’s my turn. I blew him away up in the air by O-uchi-gari, Harai-goshi, Uchimata, Ippon-seoi. At about 10 minute mark, I threw him by O-soto-gari. I intended to cause a concussion. But since the mat was so soft that it did not have much impact on him. While continuing to throw him, I was thinking of a finishing method. I threw him by O-soto-gari again. As soon as Helio fell, I pinned him by Kuzure-kami-shiho-gatame. I held still for 2 or 3 minutes, and then tried to smother him by belly. Helio shook his head trying to breathe. He could not take it any longer, and tried to push up my body extending his left arm. That moment, I grabbed his left wrist with my right hand, and twisted up his arm. I applied Udegarami. I thought he would surrender immediately. But Helio would not tap the mat. I had no choice but keep on twisting the arm. The stadium became quiet. The bone of his arm was coming close to the breaking point. Finally, the sound of bone breaking echoed throughout the stadium. Helio still did not surrender. His left arm was already powerless. Under this rule, I had no choice but twist the arm again. There was plenty of time left. I twisted the left arm again. Another bone was broken. Helio still did not tap. When I tried to twist the arm once more, a white towel was thrown in. I won by TKO. My hand was raised high. Japanese Brazilians rushed into the ring and tossed me up in the air. On the other hand, Helio let his left arm hang and looked very sad withstanding the pain.”
