COUNTERS AGAINST THE SHOOT
Counters against the Shoot
A simple way to neutralize the shoot is to move a step back, then counter-strike according, striking downward with “Green Dragon Shoots Pearl” (“Cheng Loong Thou Choui”), striking his temple with “Devil King Wave Fan” (“Kwai Wong Phut Seen”) or striking up the knee with “Golden Cockerel Stands Solitarily” (Kam Kai Thook Lap”) for example.
If the wrestler has grabbed your legs making it impossible for you to move back, hold his sides and fall backward with a kick at his groin using the pattern “Kick the Purple Bell” (“Tor Theak Chi Kam Choong”), simultaneously pushing him aside and away. All the kungfu counters shown here are deadly, capable of maiming or killing the opponent with just one strike. Such counter-attacks are of course not allowed in wrestling.
