As it is in the previous video series, the four combat sequences which form the Combination Set of Four Gates are performed here. Combination sets are also practiced by practitioners in many other schools, and they often call them two-men sparring sets. However, while we use the combat sequences in our combination sets as preparation for free sparring and real fighting, others usually use their two-men sparring sets for demonstration. The secret of our combat sequence training lies in “subtraction and addition”, which form the basis of training in the 16 basic Shaolin combat sequences but not practiced in this course due to time limitation
