How Does a Lady Chī Sáu 黐手with a Man – part4

Master Tse teaching

Often, a stronger man will like to use more force. So if they grab your hands and pull you in to punch you, you can find it very hard to go against them. The more you resist his pulling the harder he will be able to hit you because he is stronger. That is unless you have good Gong Lihk功力. Actually the best thing to do is relax and let him pull you, follow his pull and strike him with a punch or palm strike to his centre or face, but of course be gentle as it is still training. If you can relax and let go and not fight against his strength, then you will reach him more quickly than he can strike you, because he feels nothing from you, but you can feel all the weight from him, so you will hit him first. The harder he pulls the stronger he will get hit as this is his own energy. In order to be good at this, you need to be relaxed, light, and sensitive and have good footwork.
