How to Swing Hammers over Body from the 18 Hands Techniques

Learn how to do the swing the hammers over the body move, from the 18 hands techniques, from Sifu Karl Romain in this Shaolin kung fu Howcast video.


Hi. I'm Karl Romain demonstrating the 18 Tactics. This technique is called Swing the Hammers Over the Body. What is a hammer? Remember when you were a kid and you used to play with a hammer and nails? The bottom of your fist, that's your hammer.

So the opponent here grabs the shoulder. As he grabs I step towards him because I don't want to resist him I want to go with him. As I step towards him I raise one hand to block first, or to remove that arm and then the second hand striking right behind the neck. Let's do it full speed.

One more time from a different angle. First we'll demonstrate slowly. He grabs. As he grabs he's pulling whoever he's pulling in towards him. I'm going to step towards him. One and two, strike. Full speed, grab, pull, boom, strike.

I'm Karl Romain demonstrating the 18 Tactics and that was Swing the Hammers Over the Body.
