FROM CORRECT MOVEMENTS TO SPEED AND ELEGANCE

Shaolin Tantui

Grandmaster Wong demonstrates how one may increase his speed of movement by reducing steps and size



We often hear kungfu practitioners saying that the basics are very important, but they often do not realize what the basics mean, thinking mistakenly that the basics refer to kungfu patterns.

In our school, the basics go beyond the kungfu patterns. They refer to stances and footwork, body-movements, hand forms, elegance and fluidity, breath control and energy flow and mental calmness and clarity. In other words, they refer to the six harmonies of all kungfu movements.

Here we focus on footwork. We learn how to move with speed and elegance, as well as to minimize setbacks and maximize advantages.
