CHASING AFTER A RETREATING OPPONENT
Amongst other skills, the video series shows how you can press into an opponent, here using appropriate footwork with the pattern "Fierce Dragon Across Stream" If the opponent is near, you may just use a left Bow-Arrow Stance. If he retreats, you can follow using a T-Step, and adjust your left leg backward into a right Bow-Arrow Stance. If he moves back further, you can press in by moving your right leg forward to a right Bow-Arrow Stance. All the movements must be smooth.
