I first saw this video in a FB group. This is a good video in that it illustrates the veracity of the saying that all things being equal the bigger, heavier and taller opponent tends to have the advantage.
In competition having weight classes is necessary to provide all competitors with an equal and fair playing field. However, if you desire to use Tai Chi for self defence than you have to consider that there are no weight classes nor fair play when it comes to dealing with a physically advantaged opponent.
This is the reason why if you want to Master Tai Chi Today you should consider such factors. If you take a look at videos of real fights you will also see additional factors such as long hair, clothes, emotion etc. impacting the outcome of altercations.
