How Does a Lady Chī Sáu黐手with a Man – Part 1
Ladies can often feel intimidated when they Chī Sáu 黐手 with a man. They often feel that they are not as good as the men, as the men are stronger, taller and have longer arms. So if you are a lady who feels like this, what should you?
First of all, you must not think like this. There are some ladies who are taller, have longer arms and are stronger than some men. They do not feel afraid of the men and this is good. However on average most ladies are generally smaller and physically weaker than the average man. The first thing you must do is try not to be afraid and just Chī Sáu with them normally, like you would with anyone. In the beginning, do not think too much about hitting, but instead keep a good distance and a light touch. Keeping a good distance means that they cannot hit you easily, and a light touch means they cannot use force on you. You will need to use more footwork in order to remain safe. This is the first thing you should do, learn how to be safe. After a while they will start to use more force, particularly when they find it hard to hit you. So you sensitivity and footwork are the most important things!
