TAIJIQUAN COMBAT APPLICATION 8: MOVE, WARD OFF AND PUNCH

taijiquan sparring

Taijiquan Combat Sequence 8 — Move, Ward off and Punch.

Jeffrey initiates with a palm strike. Javier wards off the palm strike and counters with a side kick.

Jeffrey avoids the kick with the pattern “Low Stance Single Whip”. When you are skillful, you can use this Taijiquan pattern, “Low Stance Single Whip”, against almost any kicks!

Immediately after the side kick, Javier moves forward with a knee strike. Jeffrey counters with “Move, Ward off and Punch” or “Ban Lan Chui” in Chinese.

When you can apply these techniques skillfully, you can use them against opponents of other martial systems. For example, if a Western Boxer attacks you with jabs, you can responds with a side kick, like what Javier does. If a Muay Thai fighter gives you a frontal kick, followed by a knee strike, you can respond with “Low Stance SingleWhip” and “Ban Lan Chui”, as demonstrated by Jeffrey.
