In the videos and pictures showing Shaolin couters against Muay Thai attack, the person taking the part of a Muay Tahi fighter is Teoh Cheng Keat, who was a Muay Thai instructor before he learned from Grandmaster Wong in the 1980s. So, he knows what he is doing, though some cynical viewers, hiding behind the internet, may still say it is not Muay Thai that is shown, or that the Muay Thai shown is lousy.
Teoh Cheng Keat, who is a successful businessman driving a Mercedes now, has much experience in free sparring. He was a runner-up in an all-style free fighting competition. The champion was also from Shaolin Wahnam.
All winners and runners-up came from Shaolin Wahnam. Teoh Cheng Keat took part in the under-30 category. In the other cateoory, the above-30 category, which was considered a veteran category, the champion and runner-up were also from Shaolin Wahnam. It is interesting that in most sparring competitions, those above 30 are considered veterans!, whereas in kungfu those under 30 are regarded as small kids!
