Hey fellow martial artist!
Today, I want to share some of the first videos we put up back in 2009 & 2o10 before Enter Shaolin began! I will also share
In this short video, we see the basic function of a Wing Chun Pak Sao. In Wing Chun, the Pak Sao is a common technique that you will find in all families of Wing Chun.
Pak Sao means: Slap block
This technique is usually used to stop a straight punch coming at you or a cross punch.
Theoretically, you could use a Wing Chun Pak Sao to stop hook punches. With that being said there are better alternative techniques for stopping a hook punch and uppercuts.
Here at Enter Shaolin we focus on our wrist control when applying the Pak Sao. Meaning that rather than just catching a punch with our Pak block we control the energy of the punch with our wrist.
Of course the exception is if someone is throwing a jab and they are retracting their strike. In which case we would close the distance on them. 😉
Here is a simple training drill utilizing the Pak Sao and Tan Sao.
