The Huen Sao is another very important technique in Wing Chun. Therefore it is already strongly represented in the first form of Wing Chun – the Siu Nim Tao. Actually, the Huen Sao occurs in every set of the Siu Nim Tao.
This video is about the Gan Sao, which we use to defend ourselves against attacks to the stomach or to the ribs. Though it is a defending movement, we think of the attack and not of the defence when we do a Gan Sao.
In today’s video we talk about the Tan Sao – a very important technique in Wing Chun. We use it similar to the Pak Sao, but in contrast to the Pak Sao, we use the Tan Sao when we make contact with the opponent on the outside of our forearm.
