CRYSTALIZATION OF THE PAST MASTERS
Part 3 -- Applying Shaolin Skills and Techniques for Combat

Shaolin combat sequences
An interesting feature of our courses is that we often have a great variety of participants enjoying the same lessons. Here we have a giant and a fair lady, and a Karate blackbelt and a fresh beginner enjoying some sparring.


The beginning students of the Introductory Shaolin Kungfu Course in Japan in December 2007, like all other Shaolin Wahnam students all over the world, make us proud. Not only they are able to learn in record time using Shaolin patterns for combat, but also they are able to spar for a few hours without panting for breath! And due to the excellent control of their seniors, they are free from injury too.

These are no small achievements. This video series records some of the lessons where they learned applying Shaolin techniques and skills for sparring. It is not unlikely that kungfu practitiones in future may point to these and similar video clips saying these were the people who preserved kungfu sparring for us.

This is the third part of the Japan Introductory Shaolin Kungfu Course video series. This part is divided into the following sections which follow the order the course was taught.

  1. Handling Various Hand Attacks
  2. Applying Variations
  3. Pressing Attacks
  4. Double Kicks
  5. Practicing with Variations
  6. Felling Attacks
  7. Whirlwind Kick
  8. Sequence Sparring

Besides being a review for the course participants, this course provides excellent reference material for those who wish to prepare themselves for more advanced Shaolin Kungfu courses at the UK Summer Camp in July 2008 and the Intensive Taijiquan Course in September 2008.
