James executes a series of attacks so skillfully that his opponent has no chance even to defend himself

This series discloses an important aspect of kungfu training not normally found in most other kungfu schools, namely technique analysis. With advice and help from Grandmaster Wong, course participants give reasons for the choice of their techniques and tactics, followed by comments from fellow participants.

As a bonus, the video clips here also give an idea to kungfu practitioners not familiar with kungfu combat application, how kungfu patterns can be used for combat. Many kungfu forms may appear merely decorative, but their functional beauty comes alive when matched with an opponent's movements.

These video clips show some effective tactics and techniques kungfu practitioners can used against Boxers. But this does not necessarily means that by applying them you will surely beat a Boxer, because other factors besides tactics and techniques are also involved. Nevertheless, if all other factors were equal, using these tactics and techniques, rather than bouncing about or using free-style fighting, will give you a far better chance of handling a Boxer effectively. It is also more rewarding. It will, for example, make your kungfu training meaningful, and is less likely to result in injury.
