How to Do Deft Sewing Needle from Kung Fu 18 Hands Technique

Learn how to do the deft sewing needle move, as part of the 18 hands techniques, from Sifu Karl Romain in this Shaolin kung fu Howcast video.


I'm Karl Romain demonstrating the 18 Tactics. The tactic I'm about to demonstrate for you is Deft Sewing Needle. In this tactic we are going to initiate the attack. We're going to draw him in, and when he walks we're going to counter.

So we'll demonstrate the tactic first. I'm going to step in with an overhead attack. My partner then blocks. I counter block and then step in and punch to the solar plexus. Try to get a little faster.

Let's try from a different angle. Again, demonstrating the technique, slow speed. One - overhead attack. I initiate. Two - he counters. Three - I block and lift his arm up and back. From here I step in, punching right to the solar plexus. I'll do it a little faster. Ready? I'm Karl Romain and that was Deft Sewing Needle from the 18 Tactics.
