Mike Patterson, 58, training montage

Who doesn’t love a training montage, particularly when it’s a lifelong internal martial artist putting himself through his paces at the age of 58? Mike Patterson shows what decades of Xingyi and Bagua training can do (he started age 13 in Taiwan and was the All Taiwan Full Contact Martial Arts Champion 1975-1976)

Kettlebell aficionados may also know Mike as Steve Cotter’s Xingyi teacher (yes, that’s Steve getting beaten up)

 

Which is where Steve got his Fuhugong movements…Systema practitioners may also recognise some of these…
