Most kungfu practitioners today cannot apply their kungfu technique for combat, and many mistakenly think stances are ineffective in a fight. Here Jonny and Simon apply kungfu techniques and stances spontaneously and effectively. In fact, had they not used stances, it would be difficult to defend some of the attacks.
The attacks are of course performed in proper stances too, as doing so gives the practitioner many advantages. For example, instead of bouncing away from Jonny's “Precious Duck Swims Through Lotus”, Simon merely sinks his stance to deflect the attack, and immediately counter-attacks with “Dark Dragon Enters a Well”.
