Running Hands

James Sinclair discusses the rear guard or Wu Sau in Wing Chun is a very important tool.

To be applied skilfully in the application on Laap Sau it is important that you do not offer the lead and to freely.  If you do so you will have the fame used against you.

This is a common misuse and leads to the phrase of running or chasing hands, where the practitioners constantly play around the guard and repeat the same techniques again and again to no avail.

Predictability is one of the worst failings that a martial artist or competitive sport person can demonstrate.  From sparring to tennis, and boxing to racing it could lead to you losing.
