Master Tse’s Wing Chun Note #204

Inside Pak SauTwo Hands Against One

If our opponent is taller with longer arms and very strong, we should first keep a good distance, but we cannot just always stay away and never attack. Of course, if we know we are not as good as them staying away to be safe is important, but we still need to learn how to attack. So for this we need to know how to get close, to be face to face in the same position. This means our left hand will contact their right hand and our right hand will contact their left hand. This is the normal Chī Sáu position. People who are taller with long arms always have an advantage so we cannot always use just one hand to contact them as then we will always be in a passive situation. If we want to be strong position we can use two hands against one hand. This means both our hands can contact either his left hand or his right hand. When we do this we will be closer to one side and this is a better position. Then they will start to use more energy than us and start to get tired quicker. Usually this position happens with one hand doing a Laap Sáu 擸手 at his wrist and our other hand a Wuh Sáu 護手 at his forearm. Once we feel he is tired we can pull the Laap Sáu and hit from the Wuh Sáu, change to be Waahng Jeung横掌 or Pek劈.
