Grasp Sparrow’s Tail is followed by four important techniques that we use a lot.
The first of this is Ward-Off as explained below :-
The energy of Ward-Off is like water lifting a boat from underneath. We can easily model this by rotating an imaginary sphere with our hands.
Within the movement of the hands are :-
a) Left hand to twine, compress and lock
b) Right hand to generate rotational power in upwards direction to uproot and impart shocking momentum
You learn to use intent to turn the sphere to initiate the movements of the hands. Take your time to feel how various spirals move between the arms, body and legs.
