Chi Sau Cover Up

Sometimes when training in Chi Sau your partner will feel pressured enough to cover up and this could prove problematic as he may use this opportunity to regain composure and come back vigorously.

In this video James Sinclair discusses  his own way of dealing with this common scenario with this scenario.  The most important point is to use pressure form your own forearm to bar the student from easily turning hack toward you.  Do not let go too quickly as the striking hand also acts as a barrier to keep you safe.

This movement works very well when used quickly and forcefully.
