Here are some more old school Pictures from different competitions, etc. I am going to try and post a few of this every week, so people see the history Tai Kai has. These are from 1997-1999. Most schools in CNY were still not doing Jiu Jitsu or any type of MMA yet.
Training in California in 1997 with Carlson Gracie Black Belt and UFC vet. Allan Goes. We used to go to Costa Mesa, California to train with Allan several times a year.
Attacking the leg against Olympic Trials wrestler Rob Pritchett in 1999 in the very first Grapplers Quest in the Superfight
