What martial art does Kung Lee practice?

Postby SakuRules » Thu Jul 20, 2006 6:34 pm

I saw a guy on K-1 by the name of Kung Lee and I am not sure what type of MA he was practicing. He did a lot of leg sweeps and a type of scissor-kick take down. Was that Kung Fu?

I'm not sure, but I think it's some sort of Vietnamese kung fu, yes.

Are you two talking about Kato Kung Lee? If so he is Pro Wrestling. Or are you talking about Cung Le? If so he does San Shou.

Cung Le

I've seen Cung Le in a few San Shou fights - very impressive. He's fighting in K-1 too ? Cool.

I also hear he's fighting in MMA now - anyone have any info on this ?

BTW, I think San Shou is Chinese Kickboxing...maybe.

You are right, it is Cung Lee, and it was a sort of exhibition match during a K-1 event.

San Shou was developed by the People's Liberation Army of China in the 1960s, which was a decision of the Chinese government. Various traditional styles as well as old-style Lei tai fighting competitions were studied, and choices made from these were combined with modern insights to create San Shou. San Shou or Sanda, which means free fighting or free hand, is a modern Chinese hand to hand combat, self-defense system, and combat sport. It is composed of various aspects of traditional martial arts fighting styles in China. San Shou is composed of Quan fa (Kung fu), Qin na, boxing, kickboxing and Shuai jiao (Chinese form of wrestling). Sanda tournaments are one of the two sport wushu disciplines recognized by the International Wushu Federation.

i'm pretty sure your talking about Cung Le

http://www.sherdog.com/fightfinder/figh ... erID=14883

right?

AKA one of the most boring fighters to watch....EVER!!!

the dude is nasty and has some of the most accurate strikes i've ever seen. but jesus this guy could put Tom Arnold to sleep.

his K-1 fights would go like this:
1) try to slam...fail slam attempt...ref breaks it up.
2) repeat step one for 2 minutes of every round.
3) wow, that guy can strike.
4) repeat step 1
5) throw in that neat little scissor leg sweep
6) repeat step 1
7) win through scoring, because afer 5 failed slammed attempts, he gets 1

he seems to be doing ok in MMA though. even though his first fight was agianst someone with zero ground game.

don't let the image fool you, the fight was still boring.

Most of you are crazy that you have not seen Lee fight MMA yet. He fought Frank Shamrock earlier this year and it was a TKO. He broke shamrocks forearm with one of those devestating kicks. He seems to lack ground game but intimidates fighters with unbeleivable speed and power with his upper body. No one has gotten past the stand up game to come even close to bringing him down. He might be the next big thing. 3-0

You are obviously very new here my friend, as if not you would realise we have spoken about Kung Lee in MMA. We spoke about his fight with Shamrock too, it's just he isn't exactly a major player yet as he hasn't done much. We will however mention him again I'm sure when he knocks on the MMA door again, hopefully soon and against someone worth while.

Kung Lee or Cung Le?
Well, if its Cung Le that you guys are talking about, I heard he is about to sign with the UFC.
Hopefully his take down defense will keep his contracts fresh!

Well I take it he meant Cung Le just because of the refrence to the Frank Shamrock fight...he is a decent fighter with highlight reel kicks for sure. He is an incredible fighter but we have yet to see him face top notch elite MMA fighters like Hendo, Franklin and Anderson personally I want to...If The UFC did sign Cung I for sure would not be :( about it.
