Shaolin Kung Fu

If you block a chopping attack, your arm may be broken

Counters may be classified into three levels, namely

  1. first defence, then counter
  2. defence cum counter
  3. no defence, direct counter

"False-Leg Hand Sweep" and "Immortal Emerges from Cave" shown here are examples of no "defence, direct counter". No defence is a misnomer, the defence is in the footwork.

Note that both "False-Leg Hand Sweep" and "Immortal Emerges from Cave" are not blocks, but strikes at the attacker's arm.
