A Mind Puzzle for you

One of the more obscure arts I have found in

Shaolin Wu Xing Quan (Five Animals Boxing)


It turns out there is a lot of good video on this obscure art.

It seems to consist of this one form, but there are also applications for the movements shown.


 The range of its movements are within the range of karate, of course quite different.


I thought it might make an interesting challenge to see how you might apply one sequence from the form, one I find personally interesting.


There are interesting things you can discover.


It is useful to look at things you don’t study to understand their application potential, and then use that understanding to work out how to defeat those movements.
