    The fight ended before it even began. Police in China swept in and detained controversial Chinese mixed martial arts fighter Xu Xiaodong minutes before his scheduled comeback fight against a Tai Chi master. The planned fight came just weeks after video of Xu brutally flattening a Tai Chi master went viral - a fight that lasted just about 10 seconds, prompting massive backlash that forced Xu into hiding. Xu, an outspoken self-promoter, has claimed he is on a mission to expose fake masters of traditional martial arts.

Van Gogh never sold a copy of his creation ‘Sunflowers’, so how come these guys are? Taking the younger inexperienced painters under his wing, the self-taught ‘Master’ teaches them with techniques and ideas. One of his young protégées believes that painting has changed his life for the better. ‘Painting was my hobby but there was no teacher in my village, I worked on shop windows and signboards until I came here.’ He resigned from his job in a Wal-Mart supermarket to make a go of it as a street painter. ‘I saw you could make money painting, I have nothing else to do in my free time.’ The artists copy from books and photographs to produce some stunningly accurate and realistic art replicas. A light-hearted film which gives us a backstage pass to the world of ‘copy-culture’ in China.

Tips by Dr. Mark Sublette an art expert on how to spot fake artwork. Learn the keys when buying artwork of what to look for and questions to ask. Learn what forgers do to fake paintings to look important. Website: https://www.medicinemangallery.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/medicinemangallery Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/medicinemangallery Fake Paintings how to identify fake artwork before you buy it One of the biggest problems with dealing in early American paintings is that you have fakes and frauds. One of the reasons you come to a person like me is my expertise and my specialty. I'm going to tell you, “Yes, this is right,” or “no it isn't.” What I want to tell you today is how you, as a consumer, can look at something and potentially maybe have an idea that it is a fake or a fraud – something that was made to actually try to fool the person who's buying it. One of the things we see are old paintings, and I see this on eBay a lot, I'm afraid. You'll see an old painting that goes up, and it has an attribution. If it's attributed to an artist but isn't signed, that's a red flag. One of the most common things people do when they're trying to do a fake and a fraud on an early American painting (is) they take an old painting that might be an OK painting – that might be worth two to four hundred dollars, but it has a little look like some other artists. Like, in my case, I'll see Maynard Dixon's – they try to attribute it to him. Often what they do is they write Maynard Dixon or M Dixon. First of all, if they date it, which often they do, you might just look and see if the dates are appropriate for where he was, and what he was painting at that time. You can do this by doing a little bit of research on the web, or go to maynarddixon.org, and that'll tell you different dates of where he was. So, if they painted it in Tahoe and they did it in 1946, well, I can assure you he wasn't there. He was there in 1924. So, these little things will help. You can do some research if you really just don't know. Another thing you'll see is the frame itself. Look at the frame. If the frame has been changed out, or there's something unusual about it, or if it's very white, and they're saying on the back, “it's original to the painting,” it won't be. It takes time to develop a patina or a coloration. And wood, if it's very white, that means it's a new frame, and it's not with the painting. Also, there usually are old tags and little hints on the back. Always look at the back of a painting if you're trying to determine if it's original or not. If it has issues or if the canvas is very white, it's probably a very significant problem. If they're saying it's a new painting if they're saying it’s a new painting (then) that’s fine. If they're saying it's an old painting, (then) that's a problem. A few things to remember when you're looking at a painting and trying to decide: is it original and by that artist? (Use) common sense (and) do research. It will save you a lot of money.

Tai Chi Master vs MMA Madman! FANTASY VS REALITY What inspired this video was a recent story in which a Tai Chi Master fought an MMA fighter in a test of skills. 41-year-old, the founder of the fledgling "Thunder-style" of Tai Chi faced off against 38-year-old Beijing-based MMA fighter, coach and promoter known by fans as a "madman" for his ruthless aggression in the ring. READ THE FULL STORY IN THE BOTTOM OF THE DESCRIPTION. Prior to the match, which was live-streamed to more than a million viewers, the MMA fighter insulted traditional Chinese martial arts, saying that they were all about style with no substance. He then went on to prove his point by decimating the Tai Chi Master in less than 10 seconds. Here lies the problem: Blind Faith!!! People often believe without question or even testing what they practice in will work in a real street fight. Street fights are ugly, in the real world they don’t represent a martial arts action film. So why do people cling to this blind faith? Blind Faith: The Challenge of Modern Martial Arts Testing your ability is natural when learning any martial art. So important is challenge fighting that it is generally accepted that many of the adaptations in modern martial arts have been a result of these style vs style challenge fights. In Science, validity is the extent in which what you are practising accurately relates to the real world. Style vs style comparisons are important for testing the validity of any martial art because it allows for an accurate measure of effectiveness. After all, fighting the same style of martial art is easy because there is a level of predictability. Applying what you know to a non compliant fighter from a different martial art is harder and perhaps a real test of skills. However, if you are going to challenge yourself and another person, then this requires some understanding of what the other fighter does and sufficient preparation in a modern context of MMA. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It all started with a personal grudge. Xu Xiaodong, a 38-year-old MMA coach and promoter, was angry with 41-year-old WeiLei - head of the Leistyle of tai chi - after Wei posted Xu's personal contact information online last year. Xu said that created a disturbance in his life. Wei arrived in Chengdu last week to prepare for the fight, which was scheduled for Saturday. The fight, which took place in front of a crowd at the Yichan Club, was streamed live via Xu's social media account. It was stopped within 20 seconds, after Wei was knocked to the ground. After the fight, Xu announced on social media that he would take on anymaster who wants to defend the honour of traditional martial arts, and would put up 1.2 million yuan (S$243,000) in prize money. He said he will expose the fake martial arts masters. Several tai chi practitioners - including Chen Shou from Chenjiagou, Henan province, the birthplace of Chen style tai chi - say they will take Xu up on his challenge. Modern tai chi emphasises health, but it can also be powerful in practical combat, especially Chen style tai chi, Chen said. Also reported to have accepted his challenge were two taiji masters Lu Xing and Wang Zhanhai, Li Shangxian, a Chinese boxing expert from the Shaolin Meihua Zhuang school, and world-renowned Shaolin fighter-monk Yi Long.
