Running Hands

The rear guard or Wu Sau in Wing Chun is a very important tool to be used skilfully in the application on Laap Sau. However, it can be used in a very poor manner by offering it too freely and allowing it to be used against oneself. 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.
