AMAZING TECHNIQUES THAT CAN BE USED BY A FRAGILE-LOOKING LADY
Years ago while teaching Grandmaster Wong a rare Shaolin set, "Seven Stars", Grandmaster Ho Fatt Nam asked Grandmaster Wong how a dainty lady could block the powerful sweeping kicks of a ferocious Muay Thai fighter.
It was a rhetoric question. Without waiting for a reply, Grandmaster Ho said, "You don't block a powerful kick. You avoid an opponent's strong points and attack his weakness. Here in 'Seven Stars' we have many examples to counter powerful attacks."
This teaching has much benefited our Shaolin Wahnam repertoire. In this series we share with you how even a fragile-looking lady can handle a ferocious Muay Thai fighter.
