“Shadow-foot” Beausoleil !!! great job of using the leg to create a more points of contact and quickness with footwork in general…so much fun to watch.

Good work!

Well done to everyone. Matt great improvement, you looked awesome!

The guy in red in the last match vs. Matt was good. Looks like he’s done some Shuai Chiao. Like many SC players he was not afraid of sacrificing upright balance for throws and counter throws.

Question: can anyone tell me what the rules at this tournament are regarding power emission and shaking power?
Thanks in advance!

Dan, could you point out where (or how) the gentleman you were referring to was sacrificing his upright balance? I’m not sure if I can see what you mean? Thanks!

Well first of all let me just say I’m not a student of Practical Method just an outsider and it was just my observation. That guy looked to be doing more shuai chiao type of throws at least that’s how they looked to me. More bending at waist and using leg to hook to throw.

47:20 was an attempt.. look at how deeply he bends at the waist and dives his head down to attempt the throw.
again at 47:45 but scores
failed attempt at 49:20
deep bending at waist at 49:45

This guys push hands didn’t look very yi-chuan to me… so I guessed maybe he had some shuai chiao training. His throws looks more like this to me.


Shuai Chiao guys seem to bend over deeply sacrificing uprightness to get the throw.

I think if this is the kind of format you guys like competing in, maybe it might be good to invite some good Chinese wrestlers to toss you guys around in order to train for these competitions. Shuai Chiao players in China should be very easy to find.
