Shaolin Tantui

Grandmaster Wong fells Sifu Anthony onto the ground with a reverse sweep

In Shaolin Kungfu there are many other ways of felling an opponent apart from throwing him. One way is found in Tantui Combat Sequence 4, which often catches an opponent by surprise. How would you counter such a surprised felling attack? And how would you counter the counter? This countering and countering surely makes kungfu application very interesting.
