Thanks to all who came and participated in our 10-Year Anniversary festivities.  For those who came to the seminar, I would like to emphasize the main points that we covered.

 

Siu Nin Tao Bong Sao:

  • Must be relaxed and springy
  • Should be a passive response to pressure on the outside of your arm
  • Used to redirect force so that an opponent cannot feel your center through your arms
  • Used to changed the angle of someone pulling on your arm
  • It is not as effective for stopping a single high hit to your head.

 

Chum Kiu Body Alignment

  • 90° is the strongest structural position for receiving or delivering force
  • 45° is the best angle of deflection
  • 15° is a mobile angle
  • Maintain a straight line from your weight-bearing knee to your shoulder

 

Footwork

  • Based on Chum Kiu Turning and Stepping Angles
  • Move your body as unit, keeping your upper and lower body aligned.
  • 45° forward stepping:  closing the distance on the blind side
  • bracing forward:  projecting your power forward
    bracing back:   receiving forward force

 

Kicks

  • Lifting Thrust Kick (Wong Shun-Leung:  “use your closest weapon to strike closest target”)
  • Lifting Low Sweep Kick
  • Kick Transitions for balance and power.

 

Relaxed Power

  • Step-by-step process for delivering power
  • Based on using the minimal amount of muscle so that more of your arm mass is moving forward
  • Can be used even when NOT rooted or aligned.

 

Chum Kiu Bong Sao

  • Turning Bong Sao to redirect strong forward pressure
  • Jamming Bong Sao to collapse an opponent’s arm
  • Low Bong Sao to redirect downwards



Kwan Sao

  • Use of various Bong Sao in conjunction with a tan sao
  • Against someone pulling both of your arms
  • Against someone pushing both of your arms
  • One hand pins while one hand covers
  • Which side is “linked” and which side is “unlinked”?
