The joy of catching kicks

Hurrah for the first embedded YouTube video on this blog. It depicts sanshou highlights from the 2003 World Wushu Championships held in Macau and focuses mainly on pick-ups and takedowns but also features the occasional foot to unguarded head. The action is a oh-so-slightly slow and clumsy—the only thing with real speed being 'Firestarter'—but I appreciate the sentiment. Related YouTube goodies include detailed explanations of the mechanics of pick-ups and takedowns by the captain of the US national sanshou team, Cung Le.
