    KungFu has typically been out-performed in North American circuits, afterall; simpler, cleaner fundamentals like Boxing, Muay Thai, Wrestling, Jiu Jitsu... They have dominated much else. But there's a form of KungFu that has consistently held ground in the competitive arena: Sanda. Sanda practitioners are not only beautiful for possessing that traditional grace, but also have the full body conditioning and mentality of other realer disciplines. The result being, people get confused looking at it... It's not the Kung Fu they are use to.... It's actually working very well, and in many cases, even dominating.... That said; in this breakdown we'll be looking at two prodigies, Zabit Magomed Sharipov, and more closely, Zhang Weili. Thank you for joining me as we take a closer glance.

    Cannot see Kung Fu but do see good Dutch style Muay Thai fundamentals. Even see a pair of Thai shorts.

    Sanda is like sloppy kickboxing with push kicks. There's very little traditional kung fu (any style) in there at all.

    See other posts about the actual history of Sanda and who developed it. Sanda is a rule set not a style - poor mans Muay Thai with Chinese dollars which appeared after the Japanese had developed K-1 and hundreds of years after the Thai's and Khmer people had codified and competed in and against their respective styles.

    This is nothing but revisionism which completely ignores what stands before us - Thai trainers, Thai training drills, Thai equipment were adopted by Sanda after they were thrashed in early competitions.

    Kyokushin did similar in the 50's - sent their best teachers to Thailand to live, train and fight and then incorporated techniques into their style.

    Pretty good vid, could have told a bit more historically. Should have posted that first.

    Clearly explains the Sanda rule set, unfortunately didn't show us the Thai trainers that allowed them to make the jump from their disastrous performances from the 50's to the mid 90's and become actual ring athletes.

    University LOL. Thai's Khmer and Burmese did it in dirt centuries ago and produced the hardest standup style known.
