Tai chi vs MMA…Who is nicer?
Ignore the tai chi technique, such as it is. And please ignore the Movember ‘stache. This demonstration is really about what nice people martial artists are. When my own students couldn’t make it to the demo, Kru Mel Bellissimo of LANA MMA offered his help by volunteering his own students for my demo.
I had never worked with them before, and they new very little about me. But the nature of the event and our common interest instilled an automatic trust. My demonstrations ended up showing less about my skill and my art than it did about the quality, skill, and character of the students and instructors at LANA MMA. I am extremely grateful and totally impressed by them.
