"Naughty Monkey Kicks at Tree" to counter a felling attack

While "Striking Tiger Poise" can be used to defend against any kicks, "Naughty Monkey Kicks at Tree" can be used to counter any felling attacks. The secret lies in the tenet "Move Stance Change Step". While preparing yourself for this counter-attack, you must guard your groin while moving into a suitable position as well as guard the opponent’s hands against possible strikes while releasing his grip.
