Of Snake & Crane 2

Continuing from the previous post……

This is a demonstration of using the crane flapping wings principle to generate sudden power.

Again notice the absence of waist turning, body twisting, soft coily movements. I have to thank my student for that unexpected sound effect……..

Sometimes you hear practitioners say that Chum Kiu means Sinking Bridge instead of Seeking Bridge. This is an illustration of sinking (the opponent’s) bridge. Interestingly, I learned this from a specific lineage of Ip Man style Wing Chun.
