It’s not yet time for Friday fun, but this one is too hilarious to skip. China is where martial arts, as well as Kung Fu movies, originated. And Tai Chi is probably the most well-known and widely-practiced Chinese martial arts around the world. Push hands is a way of exercising Tai Chi with another person. Below is a video titled “Apprentice accepting ceremony for first-generation Jingwu Tai Chi master Yan Fang”. The video went viral online overnight, viewed more than 300 thousand times in less than a day and becoming one of the top 10 trending topics on Sina Weibo now.
In the video, anyone who touched or only walked closer to Yan Fang, the Tai Chi master in white standing in the middle, bounced away like they just got an electric shock.
In addition to being a Tai Chi master, Yan Fang, born in 1954, is also the CEO of Shi Jiazhuang Gong Da Photosensitive Chemicals Co. Ltd. Believe it or not, many of her apprentices have own national and international Tai Chi championships. No matter how powerful she may be, Chinese netizens thought the video was way too fake. As many netizens commented, the existence of such “masters” is the exact reason why martial arts have lost its appeal in China.
