Mark and Simon, both assistant instructors of Shaolin Wahnam England, show the class some effective techniques they have worked out themselves from their sparring session against a Boxer. Mark uses a “dragon's hand” to deflect a Boxer's fast attacks, and overcomes him with a technique — a backward throw — that he is not normally trained to counter.
By means of good footwork and “closing” the opponent's hands, Simon minimizes the speed and agility of a Boxer, then counter-attacks with kicks, which a Boxer is normally ill-trained to defend against. Laughter is a common feature in Shaolin Wahnam training.
