TANTUI SEQUENCE 1 -- THRUST PUNCH

Shaolin Tantui

"Dragon Rising Tiger Galloping" -- a pattern that is as combat effective as it is beautiful to watch



The first sequence of Tantui, called “Thrust Punch”, is simple to perform but profound in application. Would you believe that you can use just this sequence to handle any forms of attacks? Indeed, if you specialize in just this one sequence, you can become quite a formidable fighter.

The various patterns in the sequence should be performed as if they were one long, continuous pattern. The performance is guided by the three external harmonies of feet, body and hands, and the three internal harmonies of essence, energy and mind.
