The Combat Application of Zig Zag Stepping

Click picture to view video.

Yesterday we highlighted the zig-zag footwork of Southern Dragon Kung Fu. How is this seemingly awkward way of stepping used in combat? Well the answer is provided here not by (the secretive) Dragon Kung Fu but by an internal martial srts master Guo Shilei who teaches Taiji, Baqua and Xingyi. The zig-zap movement turns out to be a forward moving side-stepping - watch as Master Guo explains further in the clip where he also contrasts this indirect footwork with Xingyi's straight-in approach.
