THE MECHANICS OF PLANTING WILLOW

Shaolin Kungfu

Don't block a knee jab, but let the opponent's leg glide up your arm and then lock it in your elbow


The Muay Thai knee jabs are fast and powerful, and executed at close quarters. They are, therefore, not easy to counter, especially when your neck is being held by your opponent. But we are lucky that Sigung (or Sitaigung, or Sicho) Ho Fatt Nam has left us a legacy in "Plant Willow in Front of Camp", which is an excellent counter against the Muay Thai knee jabs. In this video series Grandmaster Wong explains in some details the mechanics of the technique.
