Last year, the Chinese martial art’s community was stirred by the lighting fast defeat of Taijiquan master Wei Lei by MMA fighter Xu Xiao Dong, who is on a mission to expose “fake martial artists”. Many Gung Fu practitioners swore revenge and challenged Xu.
In June 2017, the possible fight of the century, pitting traditional Chinese martial arts against mixed martial arts, was stopped by Shanghai police, just 10 minutes before it was scheduled to take place. The unlicensed fight would have matched four Taijiquan masters, led by Ma Baoguo, against four MMA fighters, led by Xu Xiaodong.
