The attacks have also moved from linear to sideways. This video clip answers some common doubts of people who think that kungfu patterns are too elaborated, that stances slow down a fighter's action, and that effective fighting consists of punches and kicks like those from Boxing and Kick-Boxing.

Notice Nicky's application of the tactic “when there is form, strike the form”, and her counters against throws, both of which the uninitiated may miss.
