Sifu Wong demonstrates applying “Green Dragon Shoots Pearl” against the frontal thrust kick. It does not matter much whether the opponent kicks with his left or right leg. By using appropriate body and leg movements, Sifu Wong avoids the full force of the kick, i.e. “hua-jing” or “yielding”, and counter-strikes before the opponent has recovered himself. Notice how much bigger in size is Sifu Rama over Sifu Wong, indicating that in Taijiquan size is not an important factor.
