How to Do the Chopping the Log from the 18 Hands Techniques

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


Hi, I'm Karl Romain, demonstrating the 18 tactics and this technique is called chopping the log. This is the counter to mandarin duck feet. So what we're going to do very slowly is, as he kicks, one, step back and block. Two, block the second kick. Notice that I'm keeping my distance and I don't look down. Okay? Full Speed. Now we'll do it from a different angle. Again, one the first kick comes in, two, notice that you keep your distance from your partner. Ready, full speed. I'm Karl Romain, and that was chopping the log from the 18 tactics.
