USING A NAIL KICK TO COUNTER A WHIRLWIND KICK

Shaolin Tantui

Northern Shaolin is well known for leg techniques. Here Grandmaster Wong uses a leg attack to counter Sifu Anthony's leg attack.



Northern Shaolin Kungfu is well known for leg techniques. Hence, although the representative technique of this Combat Sequence 7 is employing the arm to strike any attacks using the technique of "Single Spread", this sequence also incorporates some amazing leg techniques. When an opponent attacks you with a whirlwind kick, for example, you may counter with a Nail Kick, i.e. striking his kicking knee with the tip of your shoe like a nail.
