SKILLS AND TECHNIQUES IN EFFECTIVE COMBAT

Shaolin Four Gates

Sifu Markus of Finland and Sifu Mark of Scotland are engaged in Combat Sequence 4

The four combat sequences of “Four Gates” provide some very sophisticated and effective techniques for combat, with attacks that many opponents may not know how to counter, and with counters that many opponents may not expect. But to be combat efficient, it is not sufficient merely to know the techniques. One must be able to apply the techniques spontaneously and correctly, in picture-perfect form, with internal force and in flowing movement. In other words, combat skills are often more important than combat techniques.
