Shaolin Kungfu

As soon as a Boxer moves his hand, you can close him and strike him

Besides kicking a Boxer as soon as he uses his right hand, you can also kick him when he uses his left. For convenience, this tactic is called “kick when left”.

There are also other tactics to handle a Boxer. The class goes over the numerous other tactics learnt and practiced in previous lessons, such as closing or opening the Boxer and simultaneously striking him.

Shaolin Kung Fu Temporarily Suspend “Close and Strike” Tactic

Participants may close the Boxer as soon as he jabs his right hand, and simultaneously strike him, like what has been practiced earlier. But this “close and strike” tactic is temporarily suspended for the time being, and practicitpants practice the newly learnt “kick when right” tactic.

Shaolin Kung Fu “Open and Strike” Tactic

Another previously learnt tactic, that of “open and strike”, is also reviewed. In this clip the “close and strike” and “open and strike” tactics are used together. As a Boxer jabs with his right hand, close him and strike. If he tries to counter with his right hand, open him and strike.

Shaolin Kung Fu Close or Intercept Boxer's Right Attacks

When a Boxer attacks with his right hand, close him with your left “Wave Dragon Back to Cave” and simultaneously strike him. If his right attack is still far away, like when he throws a right hook, intercept him with “Immortal Emerges from Cave” and simultaneously strike him.

Shaolin Kung Fu Kick when Boxer uses Left Hand

Here is another tactic using kicks. As soon as a Boxer uses his left hand, lean back and kick, follow with strikes, taking care to cover the Boxer as you attack. This is a “kick when left” tactic.
