The basic 16 Shaolin combat sequences in our sparring methodology are shortened or distilled into 8 combat sequences shown in this video series. They cover all the four categories of striking, kicking, felling and gripping. These 8 combat sequences are formalized in the set "Single Tiger Emerges from Cave".
