The concepts of Combat Shuai-Chiao include kicks, strikes, throws, and locks. The purpose of every move in this art is to take down opponent quickly using any means: Knockdowns, locks, or throws. However, we emphasize more on throwing techniques simply because it is the more devastating and practical; however, also most difficult to learn. There are two types of competition of Shuai - Chiao: Traditional and Combat. In a Traditional competition, only throws could be used. Combat or Full Body competition allows kicking, punching, and throwing.
