Another fundamental defence technique against the thrust of a staff or a spear is the “flick”. In this video clip, this “flicking” technique is expressed in the pattern “Shark-Monk Flicks Spear”. “Shark-Monk” (“Sar Chng”) was a general in heaven, but had to reincarnate as a shark because of a grave mistake in breaking the “wisdom-lamp” of the Heavenly Mother. He became a monk and escorted Xuan Zhang (Tripitaka) from China to India in search of Buddhist sutras.
