Subtitles section Play video Print subtitles Since I did several tapes Probably alot of people ask me Why you want to show off To the Wing Chun guy The purpose I am doing this tape Because I am getting old now Maybe next year or whatever I can't do it anymore Might as well I do this It's for Ip Man's direct students Maybe they are too old to do this type of thing now. So I am doing this now Although when I do this thing now Alot of Wing Chun people will not like it Oh you expose Wing Chun, It is not expose You do the thing you want to get that timing Coordination on time It also takes you years to train to get that coordination and timing So it does not matter to expose it Nowadays firearms take care of everything You don't have to do it This is physics Can you do it? The coordination not the knowledge You can talk alot of theory but the application has got to be on time no fool playing not winning by talking but winning by action. Chi Sau or sticking hands is the soul of Wing Chun. When I learned Wing Chun with Ip Man we didn't have distance fighting. We started with sticking hands Tan Sau, Fuk Sau or Bong Sau. We never had distance fighting Luckily we snuck out to fight with other styles we went out to get our experience Now people have the sticking hands experience We have it so you stick hands pretty good but you can't fight Other people can fight but they can't stick hands. Just like Yin and Yang You do good at Yang doesn't mean you have the Yin part. You do the Yin part doesn't mean you have the Yang part. Pretty funny If you are very emotional I tell you to calm down The gap from emotion to calm takes how long and then you do sticking hands. Another reason is Sticking hands has forearm power and bicep power Sticking hands is mostly bicep power Ok now Becasue the bicep power when I push the guy out I am using the elbow next to my body Why Wing Chun is like that Because the structure is aiming on the floor Aiming on the floor I get ground power I lift my body up I lift his arm up But if you do this Where do you lift? Maybe you're a big guy you lift here. you can do that But we small guys, Ip man was my size How can he lift up a big guy? So you have to have a way to lift the guy. Hydraulics, you need the ground power! The ground power is called the structure. Here, from here to a line down there There's no line down there, you want to lift this arm up you've got to come from your arm If you are a big muscular guy you can do it but normal people, can they do it I doubt it. Now put the pressure on me press harder! I lift you up. So this is the Tan Sau. A lot of people do Tan Sau like this so you don't lift anything Because down here is nothing Nothing to support So this is what the structure is for. Then it doesn't matter if you want it or don't want it If you are a big guy, a young guy, you have alot of arm power you can do it. Another thing is this is the bicep power Why? Because the bicep is close to the body So you use the body to lift this up but then talk about landing If I land using bicep power to land That will be the question. Fighting will need a Pak Sau, you have to get rid of this hand This is for lifting. It's not for delivering. If you deliver like that you destroy your 3rd line (His) center line goes here (to your right line) The right side line goes here. Right side here! Now you are using the physical (strength). physical (strength) to physical (strength) I lift this so the center lifts. To deliver I have to get rid of this hand. How do I get rid of his hand? The Bong Sau gets rid of his hands. Lift the pressure off your elbow. So from Tan Sau to Bong Sau I lift. If I continue I can't lift him anymore. I continue to lift That's it The Bong Sau is for lifting Lift the guy It's not for fighting Some people, they punch and they do this No you do the lifting That's why.. he knows how to counter me Ok it's not for fighting It's for contact lifting. Ok now Come to here I lift him up Ok I change my hand now! I use the time gap. He doesn't realize what's going on. I switch the hand. Just like magic I do this I lift I hit Then he continues to go back So this is just like you play magic. right hand left hand I let you see it then I slip it so this is the interchanging of the hands The question is I teach you - can you do it? Just like magic But he didn't do the magic You have to take a long time to practice OK Now this type of thing I lift, I can't lift him what are you going to do I can't lift his hand Just because his pressure is too strong I can't lift it So I use his mind I keep lifting him (keep up pressure) He keeps pressing His mind is on this hand I use this hand, get out of my way Because his mind is on lifting my hand His mind is not on the other side (of his body) I use this side to crash his own hand and I go OK Then no argument When you do a hard job I do this Then I come to here One hand controls two hands Here control One hand controls two hands OK this will be the skill How to from left hand switch it to right hand and left hand switch it to this. Now, body structure is still there If I want to make him go harder I just... just go Power, structure everything goes at once.
