Shaolin Four Gates

They will be amazed by Combat Sequence 3 where leg techniques are used in a most sophisticate manner not only for attacks but also for defence and counters. The amazing combat applications of “Catch Tiger in Mountain”, which many people mistakenly think is only decorative, are also shown
