The Shoot

Another important wrestling technique to take down an opponent is called “the shoot”, as demonstrated here by Sifu Kai. In Shaolin Kungfu a similar attack may be effected with the pattern “Angry Bull Charges at Fence” (“Lou Ngow Chong Lan”).

But in the Shaolin pattern the exponent covers himself well against possible counter-strikes before effecting the “charge”. This coverage is absent in Wrestling as it is protected by safety rules. Notice that in the first throw, Sifu Kai does so skillfully without hurting his training partner. In the second throw, Eugene breaks fall excellently to prevent injury.
