Usage of The Wing Chun Huen Sao
What makes Wing Chun unique is the fact that it uses skills over brutality to get the job done. In order for things like the Huen Sao to work requires a lot of practice and patience to fully understand the usage. There 3 things a huen sao is used for.
Applying the Wing Chun Huen Sao
- Release pressure and release energy
- Return energy back to the opponent
- Slip a persons grip
The one thing we want to keep constant is forward pressure. What we mean by that is like a spring even if you push it backwards you still feel the pressure. A proper huen sao comes from the wrist. We want to keep the elbow very steady. We don’t want the elbow to move, but we allow the elbow to pivot. Watch more about that in this video.
Wing Chun Huen Sao – Bent Wrist Don’t Make Fist
Important: Energy can only go into 2 places, Either the wrist or the shoulder. If the energy goes into the shoulders a huen sao will not work. We don’t want to fight energy. We want to maintain energy. The way that we do that is by creating arch with our wrist. You can see it better by watching this video.
