Ngok Gar Kuen Technique Practice 2

Here’s another technique from Ngok Gar Kuen.

I still remember seeing this technique the first time and I went What??? Here’s what I probably looked like when I first learned to do it.

Looks odd, right? Doesn’t look practical; at least not when I first saw it. One thing I learned from learning movements like this is to never judge a book by its cover. Just because something does not fit our idea of what practical is does not mean its not practical.

Here’s how I do it nowadays :-

This rendition is focused more on working the snappy power which is a by-product of practicing the Series 1 static postures. The movements are clearer but unless you learn traditional Chinese martial arts I doubt you can make much sense of how it is used.

I know that as a learner of Wing Chun I didn’t know what to make of it until I was shown and then I saw the light!

Anyway, enjoy this little detour into a little seen art.
