Probably as well as the person has trained in no holds barred combat, which translates to a "puncher's chance." I don't know how well he'd stand up to someone who has spent a lot of time cultivating a strong ground & pound game but I certainly wouldn't want to take one on the chin from that dude.

It's worth noting that most of the chinese open hand forms were developed out of weapons forms after those weapons had been made obsolete by the development of small bore muskets. There was a ton of really deep knowledge in these martial communities about how the body works and these disciplines were a way of preserving this knowledge for the purposes of spiritual, political, and physical cultivation, not necessarily self defense (tho it does make a good sales pitch for joining a dojo).

Part of the political aspect was a fantasy that these techniques could overcome any opposition (read up on the Boxer Rebellion for more on this) and you can still see strains of this in Kung Fu flicks, but it is just a fantasy. The spiritual aspect was touched on by posters above. The physical aspect is really profound, but really self referential. They know a ton about fundamental alignments of the body and how to train for animalian energy, for lack of a better term. If you can suspend disbelief for long enough to dig into it all, you can learn a ton about how the body is put together.

The slow move from the first vid looks like KJUSA's straddle putt.

I find it amazing how many people that aren't capable of winning competitions have no interest in winning competitions.

I won't go so far as to say TMA can't be used as illustration for disc golf technique, but I am extremely doubtful whenever a Shaolin Monk shows up on a youtube video. At least show me some Sensei Seagal action. I think I will trust SW22 over a monk for disc golf instruction. And maybe even for fighting, I bet SW can throw down.
