Feng Shou-Gongfu Multiple Attack Drills

In the LFIAA the practice of the Chinese Internal Martial Art of Feng Shou-Gongfu  the practice of multiple attack is widely taught to all students from beginners to advanced practitioners. Each individual student learns how to strike, kick, wrestle and throw in the style of Feng Shou-Gongfu-Gongfu, they learn to apply their techniques against a single training partner for a couple of months developing their skill and ability to adapt to a situation using what they have been taught.

After a couple of months they are introduced to multiple attack drills. These particular multiple attack drills aim to enhance their over-al skill and ability to a greater level of performance and self awareness,  Laoshi Keith Ewers mentions that the practice of multiple attack drills  is the best way to judge a students level of development within  the length of their training in Feng Shou-.Gongfu. Because they are instantly placed under pressure where they have to react and are forced to practically apply their skill, obviously some students fail and need  plenty more practice time, but it is the one of the best ways to test a student within the Feng Shou-Gongfu system other than the practice of free fighting drills ( Sanshou).

The practice of multiple attack drills within Feng Shou-Gongfu teaches the students to instantly use strategy to effectively defend themselves against two or more attackers. For example if he or she is surrounded they must look for the biggest gap and go for it. But they must firstly hold their nerve and not telegraph his or her intention to the attackers, they must time it correctly especially if the attackers all rush forwards at the same time. He or she must then learn to manipulate the attackers by forcing them to get in each other’s way,by either pushing  or throwing one into another or taking one to the floor and using him to trip the others up. Learning  how  use the attackers is a great strategy as its best to fight them one at a time than all at the same time.

There are many other strategies that one can learn from practicing the Feng Shou-Gongfu multiple attack drills. Properly the most important one is to immediately escape from the situation as soon as you can create an opening skilfully enough.
