The basic 16 Shaolin combat sequences in our sparring methodology are shortened or distilled into 8 combat sequences shown in this video series. They cover all the four categories of striking, kicking, felling and gripping. These 8 combat sequences are formalized in the set "Single Tiger Emerges from Cave". A picture series and a video series of this set can be accessed here and here respectively.

These 8 combat sequences are structured in the same way as the 8 distilled combat sequences in Wahnam Taijiquan, which are formalized in the Wahnam Taijiquan Yellow Bee Sucks Pollens set. Hence, Shaolin and Taijiquan students can use these two sets as basis for their sparring practice.
