Combat sequences of Yellow-Bee Sucks Pollens

White Crane Flaps Wings against White Crane Flaps Wings

The main instructional material for our combat training in Wahnam Taijiquan is the Basic 12 Wahnam Taijiquan Combat Sequences, which are formalized into the following four combat-application sets:
  1. White Snake Shoots Venom
  2. Green Dragon Shoots Pearl
  3. Black Bear Sinks Hips
  4. Carry Tiger Back to Mountain

These 12 combat sequences are compressed or distilled into 8 combat sequences shown here, and are formalized in the set Yellow Bee Sucks Pollens. This set incorporates a side attack, in the pattern “Yellow Bee Sucks Pollens”, not found in the basic 12 combat sequences.

Another advantage is that these 8 Wahnam Taijiquan combat sequences are structured in the same way as the 8 distilled Shaolin combat sequences formalized in the Shaolin set Single Tiger Emerges from Cave. Therefore, Taijiquan practitioners con conveniently use these 8 combat sequences of “Yellow Bee Sucks Pollen” to train sparring with Shaolin practitioners who know the 8 combat sequences of “Single Tiger Emerges from Cave”.
