LISTENING TO WINDS AND CATCHING GOATS

chin na

When you are pinned down in this way and with your throat being gripped, it may seem impossible for you to counter


You are given a double treat in this concluding video series of the Special Chin-Na Course.

The poetic pattern “Tame Tiger Listen to Winds” is actually a very formidable chin-na attack which looks impossible to escape from. Yet, course participants are able to work out some effective counters. If you understand the underlying principles of the counters, you can apply them to overcome any attacks.

Application of the double tiger claws in the pattern “Hungry Tiger Catches Goat” is one of Grandmaster Wong's specialties. The encounters between him and Dr Damian are free and spontaneous, and show some interesting combat principles. The applications of this “Hungry Tiger” chin-na technique against the four categories of attack are formalized in the combat sequence demonstrated.
