HISTORY AND PHILOSOPHY OF
36 SPECIFIC TECHNIQUE SET
Grandmaster Wong demonstrated the 36 Specific Technique Set
When I was teaching at the Shaolin Wahnam Association, I taught the 36 Specific Techniques. A specific technique, known as "san shou" in Chinese (Cantonese), is how to overcome a combat situation using a kungfu technique. For example, if someone gives you a kick, what kungfu technique would you use to overcome it?
I was first inspired by a section, "Only Three Patterns", in a Chinese kungfu magazine, "New Martial Hero", which is now not operating. When I taught 36 Specific Techniques in Austria in 2017, I introducted some new specific techniques, especially on ground fighting like "Green Flog on Ground" and "Old Man Smokes Pipe".
Except in Intensive Shaolin Kungfu Course and in Intensive Taijiquan Course, I normally do not teach these specific techniques, mainly because our students already know them, and we have so much to teach.Wong Kiew Kit
