Shaolin Tantui

Grandmaster Wong sweeps away Sifu Michael Chow's attack, "White Horse Returns Head", and is about to counter-strike with "Second Brother Offers Wine"

It is very hard to believe that by applying only Tantui Sequence 1 a skillful practitioner can defend against or attack any opponent who may use any kungfu, Boxing, Kick-Boxing, Karate, Muay-Thai or any martial art techniques! But it is true, and participants at the Intensive Shaolin Kungfu Course at Toronto and Frankfurt in May and June 2007 respective had an awing experience of this truth.

This series of video clips captures some of these lessons in Toronto. As most martial artists today, irrespective of what styles of martial art they actually practice, use Boxing in free sparring, Grandmaster Wong demonstrates as a typical example how participants could use Tantui Solo Sequence 1 as well as Combat Sequence 1 against a Boxer no matter how he attacks or defends.

The main patterns used are “Big Boss Offers Wine”, “Second Brother Offers Wine” and “Rising Dragon Springing Tiger” from Solo Sequence 1, with the addition of “White Horse Returns Head” from Combat Sequence 1. With just these few patterns, a Shaolin master can handle any strikes, kicks, felling attacks and gripping attacks!.
