Shaolin Tantui

Sifu Anthony leads the class in solo practice

Today many people practice kungfu merely for demonstration as they have missed the combat application of the kungfu patterns they practice. In this connection, the six sequences shown here, which can be formed into a kungfu set when linked together, are interesting. Can you tell the combat application of the patterns in the sequences? Besides combat application, there are also other functions of solo practice, such as perfecting the form, developing internal force and enhancing fluidity of movement.
