Shaolin Tantui

Grandmaster Wong demonstrates how to fell an opponent gripping your neck and simultaneously striking you with his knee

Many martial artists are weary of meeting Muay Thai opponents. Muay Thai knee jabs, for example, are ferocious and formidable. But like any other attacks, they can be countered easily if you know how.

As Muay Thai is a sport, a Muay Thai fighter would merely hold your neck, instead of gripping it, when simultaneously kicking you with knee jabs. But in a real fight, an opponent may also grip your neck, thus making the attack even more formidable. But Grandmaster Wong shows you how you can overcome it.
