This 'Comment' was added to the referenced video (below) designed to ridicule the reputation of Master Ma Baoguo. Interestingly, although many still criticised his movements - all agreed that he showed the true bravery expected by an ex-member of the PLA!
'Really, very touching! Tears poured out of his eyes. Ma Baoguo, an Old Comrade who was almost 70 years old - faced the challenge of a much young and stronger man who was less than 50 years old! He bravely accepted the challenge! Although he was knocked down three times in more than 30 seconds – during the previous two times - Mr. Ma stood up with perseverance! For the third time, in my heart, Teacher Ma also STOOD UP!
This level of tenacity and courage must come from hard training on a daily basis. This type of righteous attitude represents an era of traditional Chinese martial arts now long gone! Teacher Ma is simply the embodiment of Huang Zhong (黄忠)! The unyielding and old-fashioned spirit of the Chinese Nation is vividly demonstrated! Just imagine - the road to success must be full of hardships and difficulties - whilst the bitterness of failure erodes a shaken heart!
If there is no clear goal, firm belief and perseverance, it is difficult to pass through the Gate of Suffering – and arrive at success! Although Mr. Ma lost in the ring, in my heart Mr. Ma won this match. Even though it was too much to win against such a young and strong man! This arena will always belong to Mr. Ma!'
