Reminiscences of Yao Zongxun – pt III

There is a great couple lines in this portion of the interview, “M Yao had already started using protective gear and kickpads in Yiquan training in the 30s and 40s. In this respect, M Yao was ahead of the curve. The protective gear meant that, firstly, there was more protection for students, and secondly, it allowed for sparring that was closer to actual fighting.” It then gets weird after that. Enjoy.
