Update From the Weekend

I’m too tired to do a whole write up on the pushhands tournament, but I’ll say I got second in the moving step and something like 6th in fixed step.  I’m confident that I’ll take gold at the next event  (in two years.)  I’ll do a big write up on that tomorrow (with pictures, more videos, and some stories.)

I did get one more video up last night.  This is of this really pimp ass pushhands player.  I met him when I first arrived 4 years ago in the park.  He’s big, but he has mad soft power (taiji power.)  He use to be a judo player.

Also on Sunday the guys from "Art of War Fighting Championship" stopped by the club.  They’re really cool guys and one of them taught us some technical shit yesterday and will teach class tonight as well.  I was dead dog tired for class yesterday.  I had them rush and give me my trophy, then I jetted straight of to BJJ practice :P.  They also might be able to hook me up with an MMA fight in China sometime down the line.  emKid might be going pro soon :D.

As if that wasn’t enough excitement for one weekend, the Taiwan beer commercial I was in started showing this past Friday.  I’m pretty sure you won’t have any trouble spotting me in it (my wife didn’t, she called laughing.)  The commercial is so appropiate for me, because I down Taiwan Beers every week.  yeah yeah YEAH!! (but just once a week ;))

Just another day in the life of a DNP (digital ninja pimp) in Asia. 😀

Sweetness.  Just saw the freeze frame of the beer commercial and there I am in the middle.

    It looks like you and “Maoman” both! Very neat.

    BTW, the top video was a little unclear. Were you the guy on the left?

    The first video is a video of a guy I think has mad skill. He’s the guy that keeps winning.

    Second place isn’t bad. Congratulations!

    The reason you got second place was because I wasn’t there on Sunday. I have proved this over and over again.
    I saw that commercial a few days ago too. I was shocked to see it. Now when I see you i’m gonna be totally star-struck! Or not since I am the star of our podcast…

    Congrats! I’ve competed before, but never in taiji, and not in push hands. Sounds like a great time. Did you do any forms competitions?

    Hi Casey,

    Don’t forget to send me that file of the Forumosa Happy Hour that made the evening news!
