Zhan Zhuang for Tai Chi 2 - Single Whip - High Pat On Horse

This technique uses Dan Pien (Single Whip) to intercept an outside punch, or an inside punch or the start of double punch - instantly joined with the coiling, seizing and plucking of Gao Tan Ma (High Pat On Horse) while simultaneously delivering a devastating blow to the throat or side of neck with the other hand. This is actually a Tai Chi "battlefield' technique where the opponent is violently pulled into the strike for maximum damage.
