MOVEMENT ONE


          

Smoothly extend the left hand to guarding position, placing the right Woo Sau just next to the elbow of the leading arm

-


          

Twist the left hand outward as it thrusts forward to make contact with the Dummy arm. The left hand should twist to a 45 degree angle in relation to the floor when it reaches full extension.

As the left hand moves forward, the right Woo Sau follows the left elbow. On completion of the motion, the Woo hand has moved forward and ends up in a position very near the inner left elbow.

-

Choh MaLop/Chahng Geng (Stance Pivot/Grab/Throat Spade)


          

Turn the left hand over without losing Bridge Contact and convert the hand to a Lop Sau thumbless grab. As the stance pivots halfway to the left and the right hand passes between the two upper Dummy arms to strike with Chahng Jyeung at throat-level to the White Strike Pad the left hand pulls on the dummy arm.

Use a pivot of the shoulders to add snap to the motion and keep the Lop elbow on the Immovable Elbow Moving Line.

 

MOVEMENT TWO

Joang Sau, Biu Joang Sau


          

Smoothly withdraw the left hand to guarding position, placing the right Woo Sau just next to the elbow of the leading arm, returning the stance to Jee Keem Yeung Ma position (Original stance position).

-


          

Twist the left hand outward as it thrusts forward to make contact with the Dummy arm. The left hand should twist to a 45 degree angle in relation to the floor when it reaches full extension.

As the left hand moves forward, the right Woo Sau follows the left elbow. On completion of the motion, the Woo hand has moved forward and ends up in a position very near the inner left elbow.

MOVEMENT THREE

          


Turn the left hand over without losing Bridge Contact and convert the hand to a Lop Sau thumbless grab. As the stance pivots halfway to the left and the right hand passes between the two upper Dummy arms to grab the rear of the dummy at neck level the left hand pulls on the dummy arm.

Use a pivot of the shoulders to add snap to the motion and keep the Lop elbow on the Immovable Elbow Moving Line.

MOVEMENT FOUR

 Boang Sau (Wing Arm Deflection)


          

Without moving the stance, drop the right arm through the two upper Dummy arms and circle it outside to the right. Continue to circle into a right Boang Sau that threads between the two upper Dummy arms and opens out slightly toward the Dummy as the forearm makes contact with the inside left Dummy arm. During the circling motion of the right arm, the left hand is brought up to Woo Sau position, moving in the opposite direction from the right.

MOVEMENT FIVE

Seep Ma Tan Da Chahng Dai Jyeung (Three Point Stance/Palm-Up Block/Low "Spade-Palm" Thrust)


          

Step the left foot to the left along the Semicircle. Without losing Bridge Contact with the right arm, covert the Boang into Tan Sau as the right foot circle-steps around the Dummy Leg to create a new Centreline 45 degrees off the Original Centreline.

Making sure the left hand remains in the Woo Sau position.

-

          

Execute a left Chahng Dai Jyeung, completing that strike with Raising Power as the left foot finishes the three part footwork with a sliding step. The footwork has three parts - step, circle and slide.

At the completion of the motion, both knees should remain bent with the pelvis up. The right wrist should be sharply bent to give the Tan Sau a "sticky" trapping effect with wrist and back of the Tan hand pressing down on the Dummy arm.

The Arm Bridge sticks to the arm of the Dummy while moving.

MOVEMENT SIX

 Toy Ma Gahng/Jom Sau (Retreating Stance Pivot/Low Sweep/High Chop Block)

          

In an action that covers the entire Centreline but does not change the line created by the previous motion, slide the right foot backward, passing through the gap under the Dummy Leg to a point not past the Original Centreline and pivot both feet to the right.

This footwork brings the stance to a right Inside Facing Choh Ma position. During the sliding step, begin the Gahng/Jom Sau motion by snapping the right wrist inward and circling the arm into a low outward/forward Sweep Block as the left arm circles up to Jom position. Both motions simultaneously make contact with the Dummy in time with the pivot.

At the completion of the motion, the right arm should be angled so that the tucked thumb points towards your Centreline and the left hand cuts into the Centreline itself. The power of both arms, although apparently sweeping sideward to the right, is focused directly towards the Dummy's Motherline.

Power starts from the heart and shoots straight to the core of the Dummy.
