STRIKING YOUR OPPONENT BEFORE HE REALIZES WITH SHOOTING SPEAR AT YUN PAVILION

Shaolin Tantui

This is Combat Sequence 8. As your opponent attacks with a whirlwind kick or any other forms of attack, you jump away slightly to avoid the attack. You should be far enough to avoid the attack, but near enough for your opponent to move in easily to continue his attack. If you are too far from your opponent, he may not move in, As he moves in, you surprise him with a thrust kick, often hitting him before he realizes what has happened. Simultaneously you strike out your punch, which may deflect his hand attacks or actually strike him too. This pattern is called "Shooting Spear at Yun Pavilion".
