Come join us on Saturday the 8th of August as Sifu Lam conducts a mini-seminar/workshop on how to improve your understanding and skillset on both Chi Sao and Gwoh Sao!
Sifu Lam and some of his senior students will be helping attendees find what is lacking in their skill set and help them improve their Wing Chun!
What is “Chi Sao” and “Gwoh Sao”?
-As Sifu Greg LeBlanc has stated:
“Qi sao is the bridge in Wing Chun training from learning concepts and techniques, to putting them into practice and then ultimately being able to fight with them. It provides a platform from which the practitioner can safely develop his/her abilities and test the abilities of others.”
For our system and school, gwoh sao is when we do a free form chi sao exchange, allowing us to practice and utilize the hand techniques and different concepts we have learned throughout our drills under a more “realistic” yet still controlled environment.
Why should you attend?
– Everyone who practices Wing Chun technically knows how to chi sao and gwoh sao, but that is just as the same as people driving on a daily basis. You may understand the idea of driving and how to function a car to go and stop, but do you really know how to effectively use your car to the fullest?
Being able to truly understand how to properly react with control and anticipate in a constantly changing situation is what will push your skills to the next level. If you feel like you often rely on knee-jerk reactions when you are pressured by your opponent, this seminar/workshop will allow you to find more depths behind your understanding and techniques!
