COMBAT SEQUENCES OF CLOUD HANDS
As many people know, Grandmaster Wong is constantly improving his teaching methodology and repertoire. In the recently completed Taijiquan course in Spain from 23rd to 25th August 2011, where participants ranged from beginners’ to masters’ levels, instructional material for combat application of the set "Cloud Hands" is unexpectedly developed.
Sifu Manuel Tirado Lopez, a former international Taedwondo sparring champion, and Sifu Daniel Perez posed for the videos as follows:
- First they performed the routine of the combat sequence slowly
- Next they performed the routine of the combat sequence in normal speed
- Using the combat application of Cloud Hands, Sifu Daniel free sparred with Sifu Manuel who posed as a free-style fighter
- Free Sparring. Both combatants can use any style, but as they found Taijiquan the most effective, naturally both used Taijiquan, especially the combat application of Cloud Hands
