OUTDOOR-AREA PAK-SAU - THROAT-CUTTING HAND - JUT-SAU & LOWER THRUSTING PUNCH

LOWER BONG-SAU - SIDEWARD SLAPPALM & MAN-SAU
• The Lower Bong-sau is a movement applied to dissolve the opponent's lower-level straightline punch. For a better result, the Bong-sau is effectuated in co-ordination with turning of the body so as to maximize its "evasive effect".
* The Man-sau is a movement derived from the Lower Bong-sau. When the attacking arm of the opponent is weakening in force or is about to retreat, the practitioner's arm, which is bending down in the form of a Bong-sau, now turns up to form the Man-sau, thus conforming to the Wing Tsun motto "Stay with what comes, follow through as it retreats, and thmst forward as our hand is freed ".
