Famous 1954 Macao Match

, , ,

Rare (less than ideal quality) 7:42 video of charity match held in Macao, 17 January 1954, between T’ai Chi Ch’uan grandmaster Wu Kung-I (å³åu2026¬åu201eu20ac 1900-1970) and Tibetan White Crane stylist Ch’en K’e-fu (éu2122u02c6åu2026u2039夫 Chan Hak Fu, aged about 33).

There were numerous restrictions on forms of attack, but in under two rounds, the contestants grew heated, and contacts violating the rules were exchanged. It was thought too dangerous to proceed, and the match was declared “no winner, no loser, no draw.”
