Can you explain Tuk Sao And Kao Sao. I find confusing explanations on youtube. Okay. Everybody’s gonna have their own version of how things work and do it according to what they do.
Okay. Some will base it on one speed and some will base it on strength some will base it on both, some will base it on energy for us, for the energy, we’re all about human anatomy, how the energy works in the human anatomy.
So, um, if I’m right, the Tuk Sao, the lifting of the hands, okay. Uh, for us, you know, for everyone who’s seen the, the, the Ngo Dac Na three proof is foolproof. We have a basis on which we move energy.
It goes shoulder, elbow, wrist, wrist point. So everything, every one of our movements is based on that. So, um, if you’re going to do talks out, you know, it’s very important to have a good base and lift from the elbow.
You don’t want to lift from the shoulder. You can see the difference. I don’t want to do this. That puts a lot of stress and look in the lever. It’s very long. I just do it from here. It’s half the length so it’s less stress on my shoulders.
So you want to make sure that if I’m going to lift the hands up, it comes from the elbow and the wrist turning up with a good strong base from the shoulder. The elbow. Okay. And uh, Kao Sao. I think it was the same as you saying.
It’s a Huen Sao for us. We make a circle not just with our fingers we make a circle with the wrist as well. So I don’t do this, which a lot of people do. We do it like this where we make a circle with our arm as well.
And our purposes for our Huen Sao is to go around a force that’s all our arms.
So if sije Jamie is holding my hand here, a lot of people just do Huen Sao , you can see it has no value around the hand. Well we make a circle with the wrist of the round and then we can go around the slip your hand if you do it where it’s just, with your wrist without the forearm on the wrist moving it.
For us, it doesn’t have a value, especially against, uh, grappling, or anti grappling techniques. Uh, you’ll find that it has no usage because there’s no arm behind it. It’s just a wrist like this.
And you can see how very limited, limited the handed versus like this. And again, the size of the circle depends on the energy behind it. When you’re in a grab .
So sometimes you can do it like this, more like this big versus small and again, energy and you’re skill behind it and how to create that circle.
Um, but you have to know how to make them, not just your fingers, make the circle. It’s the wrist as well. For us, we emphasize on the wrist in the Ngo Dac Na system the wrist are the most important thing.
When you’re doing this, you’re not really using your moving your wrist or from your wrist. You’re moving it from the fingers and the energy is out here, for us it is about getting energy into our wrist.
So you can see right here, I’m always getting the energy into the wrist especially, Like you see the return vs like this, it’s going up to the fingers. You see the energy’s going up there.
It’s not going here. For us it’s about the wrist of getting the energy in the wrists. So for us it’s always about the wrist, the wrist, and then the wrist.
So I, I always tell my students like this, the good news is all you have to do is learn how to turn your wrist and your waist .
The bad news is, all you have to do is learn how to turn from your wrist and waist, which we like to do more. And you just want do from those two points, of movement for control.
Everybody else adds more like the same thing. Like it talks about when, when you do a, a Tuk Sao that a lot of people would go from here, shoulders, not, it’s a lot of stress on the arm and puts the energy backwards.
You got to have the strong base down and go from the other wrist and the elbow pivots. So it drives the energy forward and the wrist makes the turn to create the control. So I, that’s how we do it. Um, but that, that’s what we would try to do on the top.
Yeah. And speaking of working with the wrist, so, um, I’ve been working on my wrist a whole, whole, whole lot more in the past 45 maybe three days No.
Well the reason why I tell you is like you might start getting a really sharp pain right in the middle of your elbow. And I was freaking out cause like all of a sudden it came out of nowhere and it started on this side, but then it started on this side and I started doing some research on it to find out what was going on.
Cause I’m like, all right, I’ve never had that feeling there. And it doesn’t happen all the time. It’s just like random too. So it’s very strange.
Almost felt like someone’s sticking a pin right through the middle of your elbow, which doesn’t feel good. Fine. Um, but anyways, long story short, this runs into a, tendon which deals with your wrist.
So if you’re working your wrist a lot more than you’re used to, you might start getting that. Um, don’t worry. It does start going away. I definitely recommend doing Qigong cause that helps me, um, be able to get the pain to go away.
But also continually working on conditioning. Your wrist, as they are weaker, it will go ahead.
Well one of the, uh, reason why you feel the pain is a lot of times when you use your wrist , you’re holding too much tension in your elbow.
The wrist has supposed to be relaxed. And this is, this power doesn’t come from the energy coming back with us. Why a lot of people feel that, uh, you got to get it from here and then send it here and then use the wrist and bring it towards the wrist.
We tend on pulling the wrist towards the elbow was very, very common. And that’s the stress and that’s where you feel that. So you gotta be careful not to do that.
Practice, practice, condition, condition. There you go. But I just want to let you know, cause if anyone else has gotten that random weird feeling now, you know.
