Most martial arts are activities, like sports. They're something you do with your opponent: he strikes, you block, you strike, he blocks. Combat Sanshou is a fighting art, and the purpose is to put your enemy on the ground without following him there: a true stand-up combat system designed for real-world combative application.

In Part Two of this three-part series, master martial scientist Wim Demeere teaches Combat Sanshou's brutal kicking and sweeping techniques. In addition to showing the basics such as front, side and roundhouse kicks, he also teaches knee strikes that won't make you compromise your base and balance, proper stomping techniques and how to defend yourself against kicks that can go as low as the ankle or as high as the face. Finally, he demonstrates several leg sweeps that you can use to send your opponent to the ground and put him at your mercy. For information purposes only.


Wim Demeere began training at the age of 14, studying the grappling arts of judo and jujitsu for several years before turning to the kick/punch arts of traditional kung fu and full-contact fighting. Over the years he has studied a broad range of other fighting styles, including muay Thai, kali, pentjak silat and shootfighting. Since the late 1990s, he has been studying tai chi chuan and its martial applications. His competitive years saw him win four national titles and a bronze medal at the 1995 World Wushu Championships. In 2001, he became the national coach of the Belgian Wushu fighting team. A full-time personal trainer in his native country of Belgium, Wim instructs a wide variety of clients in martial arts, self-defense and physical conditioning styles. You can contact Wim through his website and at his blog.

Stickgrappler's Note: I am guessing the Paladin site will be shut down at the end of the year and I'm archiving select Paladin Press pages to my blog to preserve an essential part of martial arts from 1970-2017. Archiving some of my favorite Paladin titles.
