An Expose on Wing Chun Kung Fu'
Parallel Single arm Chi Sao Drill
Parallel Single arm chi Sao is practiced stationary from a neutral stance with a partner. It employs one moving arm and one static arm, develops contact reflexes, sensitivity, sticking to the arms and forward intention in Fuk Sao, Tan Sao, and Bon Sao.
Terminology for the Qi Sao movements are:
Fuk Sao – bridge on arm
Tan Sao – palm up block
Bon Sao – wing arm
Jut Sao – jerk hand or pinning hand
Biu Choi - thrusting punch
Jeung - palm strike
The drill trains Tan Sao, Fuk Sao, Jut Sao or Gum Sao and Bon Sao, central line theory, action reaction response, correct position of the arms, visual, sticking, independent movement of the arms and body.
The drill teaches us to use Tan Sao to create openings for attack in the upper gate, to release and stick with Fuk Sao, before redirecting the force (palm strike) coming in under the arm from Tan Sao, into the lower gate using Jut Sao or Gum Sao, also to redirect attacks coming over the arm in the upper gate using Bon Sao.
This drill develops the concepts of; sensitivity in conditioning our reflexes, strategy, close range distance for combat, the straight line attack, to attack when we control the centre, to yield and not fight force against force, to create openings and to attack using forward intention through gaps in our opponent’s defences when correct positions are lost.
This is the foundation of double arm Qi Sao and happens in a static position. Using only one arm simplifies the drill, and allows for all this information to be programmed into the arms and mind. This training uplifts our mind, body coordination while training conditional reflexes to an action, reaction response in close range combat, in the upper gate without having to think about the legs in the lower gate.
This is the first stage to Double arm Qi Sao.
Correct position of the arms is vital for attack and defence................
