Shuai Jiao in Kung Fu Magazine

Shuai Jiao in Kung Fu Magazine

My Shuai Jiao (Chinese wrestling) story is running in Kung Fu magazine in America. And my teammates’ pictures are going around the world. Just goes to show you, you can be born in Jiangsu province and still become a media star in America. Isn’t that the Chinese dream?
The photo for the Shuaijiao article is from the Shanghai BJJ and Wrestling Tournament in November 2013. I hurt my shoulder warming up, about an hour before I had to fight. I couldnt lift my arm. And my teammates had to help me put on my wrestling jacket. But I went in there and fought. The shoulder is STILL screwed up and painful. Antonio Graceffo (安东尼)

Martial Arts Odyssey : Lai Tai (Part 1)

The Kung fu of the Shan People of Burma

By Antonio Graceffo

 

The Shan people migrated from China to Burma centuries ago, brining with them their own special brand of Chinese Kung Fu. Travel with Antonio Graceffo as he makes his way into the war zone of Burma to learn this ancient martial art at the military headquarters of the Shan State rebel Army. See the first Lai Tai video ever

filmed.

Meet twenty year old Kawn Wan who first learned Lai Tai from monks in his village. After the Burmese government burned his village and killed his parents, he came to live in Li Tailang, Shan State Army headquarters, where he teaches Lai Tai to the orphans so that the Shan culture will not die out.

 

Antonio Graceffo has been embedded with the Shan State Army inside of Burma. This article is part of the “In Shanland” project. To raise awareness about the plight of the Shan people Antonio will release one print article and one video per week for a year. He is giving these media away for free to ensure that they will reach the largest audience. You can watch all of the Shan videos released to date on youtube.
