VARIOUS WAYS TO FELL AN OPPONENT
There are many ways to fell an opponent. Three main ways, with different variations, are demonstrated and explained in this video series, and they are implemented in the patterns “Fell Tree with Roots”, “Lead Horse Back to Stable” and “White Crane Steps on Snow”.
If an opponent has his right leg in front, “Fell Tree with Root” would be an effective pattern to fell him. If he has his left leg in front, it would be more advantageous to use “Lead Horse Back to Stable”. The mnemonic, “When a tree is right, fell it. When a horse is left in the open, lead it back to its stable”, may help beginners to remember choosing the most appropriate pattern.
You may use “Fell Tree with Root” when your opponent has his left leg in front if you make some adjustment. On the other hand, “White Crane Steps on Snow” can be used to fell an opponent irrespective of which one of his legs is in front. But when you are familiar with these techniques, it does not matter which of your opponents' legs are in front for you to fell them easily.
