Master Li Da Ling shows a number of martial applications. When Master Li was younger, he regularly fought as part of his district wushu team. These bouts were open competitions, with little of the protection or contact rules seen in San Da competitions these days. Speaking from experience (I was the one he was hitting!) his attacks and movements had meaning. Of the many masters who I have felt demonstrate strikes or locks, his were among the best. Most importantly, as Master Li is not a physically large person, his fingers were strong and locks precise. Filmed in Shanghai, April 2006.
