Shaolin Tantui

Sifu Simon neutralizes a triple attack from Martin

How would you counter an opponent attacking you continuously. One effective way is to intercept his attack and counter attack. But a skillful exponent can neutralize the counter-attack and continue his pressing attacks. This is shown in Combat Sequence 10 where the exponent first presses in with triple attacks, and after neutralizing a counter-attack, continue to press in with continuous kicks. The combat sequence is known as “Arrow Spring”. Indicating that the pressing attacks are fast like arrows and coupled with spring-kicks.
