Felling an opponent is an essential part of combat. At the beginning of this video clip Professor Inaki demonstrates how to apply the pattern “Uprooting Tree with Roots” to fell an opponent backward.
At first the participants are uncertain of the technique as well as not fluid with the skills, although Carlos who partners Professor Inaki does quite well. Nevertheless, with systematic practice eventually they could apply the techniques effectively towards the end of the training session (but not shown in this video).
