    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    How do you actually use Wing Chun?



    A lap sau to overhand right? Does anyone remember the cop vs jay walker woman? At one point the cop does a similar move where he pushes down on the woman's hand and cracks her with a huge overhand right.

    I think this is much better than a lap sau-> straight punch over lap sau variation, what do you guys think?

    God damned you Pizdoff...it's a PAK SAU (slapping hand I think). Not lop sau.

    And it is also great proof of the elusive existence of "trapping".

    Look at that...a professional MMA fighter gets in a REAL LIFE, STREET-LIKE fight and uses Wing Chun instead of his bastardized, no-skill MMA.

    It is only by the Grace of God that he didn't have a pair of butterfly swords on him or it would have been a massacre.

    Put your butterfly knives away. He has grabbed the shirt sleeve chunners parry and deflect.

    You can pretty easily tell by the angle of his shoulders and his torso that he is in fact NOT going to throw an overhand right, but rather feint and throw a straight punch down the centerline, likely followed quickly by a cycling of the left hand back to the chest as he steps forward to subdue his opponent with a series of quick chain punches.

    It truly is amazing what the eye can miss without the proper knowledge.

    YouTube- Wing Chun- Full Contact

    Wing Chun in a resistant full-contact situation, look at that if you wanna try using it in a fight.

    I want to remind y'all that this is in the style forums, which is moderated on on topic posts. This is not a trolling thread.

    I don't think you can make that distinction from the picture.

    Pak Sau (slapping hand) - Can be administered straight forward to force back, or force the opponent's centreline away from yours. Or to block punches (though Wing Chun I've seen teaches using pak sau to block the wrong way in my opinion. ie From orthodox stance

    Lop Sau (compressing or lowering hand) - Is more the idea of sticking to something, pushing into, down, or diagonally down to gain the centreline.

    I think it's a lop sau where mixed martial arts superstar Jake Shields pushes down on Jason "Mayhem" Miller's arm to clear the way for his right hand.
