kung fu quest: WingChun ChiSao Training and Sparring


I came from Beijin to Foshan to understand TuiShou expressed by some schools In many of them, if the partner goes behind I go ahead, and vice versa, this is for “safety distance” The body shapes itself without breaking the safety distance The same thing happens with moving left and right Never stiff, I understand all his movements with my “skin” and the sensitivity of the “sticky” arm that is pasted to him So, if he pushes forward I absorb back, opening and lowering myself, never opposing to his strength If he comes forward, I pull back making him lose his center and using my techinque In Foshan (with TuiShou) there are sometimes different “reactions” of force (compared to those of YiQuan) because my right hand can cross and control the right hand of the opponent Often in YiQuan’s TuiShou, the right hand controls the left hand of the opponent And, too, the pressure is different There isn’t an union of force seeking for an imbalance, they use “what you offer” immediately Often, they do not give strength, as soon as they receive it they use it, without looking for distance and balance In Foshan there are very good masters, but not necessarily their schools are open to anyone, and it is interesting to see whether the method works with the students The force is in the hip, while in the other lineages the force starts from the feet Here you move the hip first and feet later, you don’t move feet first and the hip later, everything is in the hip Everything is moved by the “Qi belt” of the hip Then, if they move their arms, they do not move the body And if you move the body, do not move your arms This is a very important difference YiQuan and TaiJi are very different about this If used properly this system is very effective Because it immediately uses your pressure to look for a contact It is an interesting system, not easy to master, similar but different from other traditional arts I had seen before
