Seung Chi Sau 雙黐手
After practising Daan Chi Sau 單黐手, we then move onto practising Seung Chi Sau 雙黐手. Seung means double, so Double Hands Chi Sau. Before we seriously train with a partner, we must take things step by step, this means practising solo without a partner.
There are four hand positions.
- Taan Sau 攤手 and Bong Sau 膀手
One hand is Taan Sau and the other hand is a Bong Sau. Then hands rotate so the Taan Sau is at the bottom and the Bong Sau is at the top. When the Taan Sau changes to the top it becomes Bong Sau and when the Bong Sau rolls to the bottom it becomes Taan Sau.
- Double Fuk Sau 伏手
One hand is a high Fuk Sau and the other hand is a low Fuk Sau. They keep rotating with the high Fuk Sau changing to low and the low Fuk Sau changing to high. The high Fuk Sau should not be used individually; it is only used when doing Seung Chi Sau with double Fuk Sau. Normally Fuk Sau should not be high.
- Left Hand is Taan Sau and Bong Sau, Right Hand is low and high Fuk Sau.
This means we combine 1 and 2 together. The left hand is Taan Sau and the right hand is high Fuk Sau. They then change over so the left hand is Bong Sau and the right hand is normal Fuk Sau.
- Left hand is low and high Fuk Sau, Right hand is Taan Sau and Bong Sau
All the movements swop over from number 3. Left hand is low Fuk Sau and the right hand is Bong Sau. They change so the left hand is high Fuk Sau and the right hand is Taan Sau.
