COUNTERING ANY ATTACKS AND TEMPTING AN OPPONENT INTO A TRAP

Shaolin Tantui

As an opponent closes in to attack, Sifu Michael executes a surprised thrust kick



Grandmaster Wong explains some crucial points found in Combat Sequences 7 and 8. In Combat Sequence 7, a Tantui exponent may use his arm in “Single Spread” to counter any attacks! It is very effective against someone, like a Boxer, who uses quick, continuous punches. In Combat Sequence 8, some sophisticated leg techniques are explained. This sequence incorporates a tactic to tempt an opponent into a trap. Course participants then practice these two sequences.
