Wing Chun Lop Sao Drill

Wing Chun Lop Sau Drill

Drill# 1001  As always, at we would never suggest that there is only one way to do anything. The biggest difference you may notice is that our lop da involves a lop with a straight punch rather than with a reverse chop as is popularized through the media. To understand the rational behind this imagine attacking someone with a pool cue. If you SWING the stick at the opponent the opponent can throw an arm up and block anywhere along the stick. If however you attack with a thrusting/poking type hit, it is much harder to defend because there is less surface area to block.

Also, lap da the way we suggest it, pulling the lapped arm ACROSS and away rather than toward you, creates the same head jerk balance disconnect as pulling toward you. Moreover, if the opponent does not know how to empty the shoulder, he will be turned away from you and not able to see your incoming punch. It is for this reason that the counter, kwon sao, covers a “zone” as you may not be able to see the incoming punch.

    Guys I’m curious about something I saw in your larp Sau video. I was always taught to never step to the blind side with the rear leg from cross (front stance) position when doing entry as it leaves the lead leg inner knee exposed/vulnerable. I see you doing that quit often…. why?
