counters against knee attacks

Here are some Counters against Muay Thai knee attacks. After intercepting the opponent's knee strikes, which are known in Shaolin Kungfu as “Jade Girl Kicks Shuttle Cock” and in Taijiquan as “Golden Cockerel Stands Solitarily”, the kungfu exponent immediately follows with “Wave-Breaking Hands” and “White Horse Presents Hoof”.

The counters shown here are relatively “hard”, and are meant as basic training at the beginners' level. When a student is more skillful, he can apply “softer” yet more deadly methods. An example will be shown in a later video clip. This video clip was taken imprompto when Sifu Kai Uwe of Shaolin Wahnam Germany and Sifu Darryl Collett of Shaolin Wahnam Scotland explained the techniques to participants of a Warrior Project.
