Debate settled with duel

A debate about modern fighting techniques versus traditional Chinese martial arts spilled into the ring, ending in a lopsided victory for the former in a fight staged in Sichuan province last Thursday. Mixed martial arts fighter Xu Xiaodong wiped the floor with taiji master Wei Lei, with the duel lasting a mere 10 seconds. Wei said the fight took place after a dispute online with Xu over the merits of traditional Chinese martial arts.- THE STRAITS TIMES
