It is easy to fell a Kick-Boxer when or immediately after he kicks

Technically speaking, if you move in to fell a Kick-Boxer when he kicks or immediately after he has kicked, he has little or no chance to escape your attack. You must of course close him correctly so that he cannot counter-strike.

This does not necessarily mean that if you apply a felling technique on a Kick-Boxer in a real situation, you will surely fell him. Whether you will succeed or not depends much on your skills in relation to his. If you are clumsy while applying this technique, not only it may not work but he may kick you many times. Even if you can apply the technique correctly, if he is more skilful, he can still kick you.

But it is obviously a big advantage when you know the technique. Compare, for example, with many kungfu practitioners who do not even know what to do when a Kick-Boxer attacks them. Having learnt the technique, you just need to practice and practice to be skilful in applying it.

Covering Kick-Boxer and Striking him Continuously


As Daniel, posing as a Kick-Boxer, moves in to attack, Adam moves to a side, closes Daniel and counter-strikes with a dragon-hand. Adam covers Daniel adequately and strikes him continuously. If the Kick-Boxer tries to bounce away, close in swiftly, taking care to main adequate cover.

Felling Kick-Boxer while he is Unstable


Grandmaster Wong further improves on Adam's counters against a Kick-Boxer. A Kick-Boxer is unable to counter after his kicks or while he moves away. Exploit this opportunity to fell him and put him under control while striking him decisively.

Easy to Fell a Kick-Boxer


It is easy to fell a Kick-Boxer. After deflecting his attack, George moves to the Kick-Boxer's side and fell him using “Fell Tree with Roots”. It is very important to cover a Kick-Boxer adequately even when he is on the ground, while you strike him.

Give Opponents No Chance for Surprised Strikes


Grandmaster reminds the participants a very important point in combat. The issue is not whether an opponent knows how to strike you in surprise, but that you do not give him any chance to do so. Peter, who poses as a Kick-Boxer, learns very fast. He gives George a surprised elbow strike as George attempts to fell him.

Skilful Use of One Hand for Control


Grandmaster Wong shows the finer points in controlling Peter. While his right hand grips Peter's throat, his same right arm prevents Peter from executing a surprised strike. Grandmaster Wong does not even need to place his other hand behind Peter's back to fell him. With skilful placement of his right hand and his stance, he can fell Peter with just one hand, leaving the other hand to drink coffee.

Felling an Opponent with Just One Hand


George puts Grandmaster Wong's fine points into action. Such teaching has to be from person to person. It is not feasible to learn such fine points from books or videos. Here, George still uses his other hand as an anchor behind Peter's back, though its use is already quite minimal. With refinement George can use just one hand to fell an opponent so that he can use the other hand for drinking coffee.

Conclude Combat with Decisive Strike


George is a fast learner. Here he uses just one hand to fell Peter as Peter moves in to attack. Grandmaster Wong asks George to continue his attack when the opponent is on the ground. He should control the opponent and conclude the combat with a decisive strike.

Tripping to Fell an Opponent for a Decisive Strike


Even when George could control a Kick-Boxer and hold his leg, the Kick-Boxer may still escape or counter-attack. Grandmaster Wong shows how George could fell him by tripping him with a leg, and control him for a decisive strike.

Ensure that You are Absolutely Safe


Here George effectively fells the Kick-Boxer, controls him and deals him a decisive strike at his neck. Even when you have your opponent on the ground and apparently under control, you must not take any chance. You must ensure that you are absolutely safe, that the opponent cannot surprise you with a strike at your groin, ribs or eyes.
