    UFC President Dana White announced this past Saturday that there will be an event in China sooner than we can imagine. Question is, will this bring the Sanshou fighters out into the world view of combat sports? For those who do not know, Sanshou is a Mixed Kung Fu Art. It is so effective, the Chinese military declared it their official martial art. If you look up Sanshou videos on You Tube it's almost exactly what you commonly see in the MMA cages.

    So how do you feel Sanshou will stack up against the more western influences of MMA in a cage fight?

    Using Cung Le as a template, it can translate well into the cage after cross training other necessary skills.

    I have LONG felt that Sanda/San Shou would eventually become one of the top forms of martial arts used by fighters in the UFC. Right now there really aren't enough academies in the United States for that to be the case, but I think that will change. Heck, I tried to find a San Shou academy in Los Angeles, a West Coast city with a huge Asian population and influence, the second largest city in the country, and cannot find any.

    I have a lot of faith in Sanshou going worldwide here soon with China opening it's doors again to the west.

    For those interested, here's an old Human Weapon episode on the topic
