New Course Added – China Kwongsai Mantis – Som Gin Yu Sao
ESSENTIAL “YU SAO” FORM RELEASED
“Shake, Rock, Wave, Turn, Wag”
CHINA KWONGSAI – SOM GIN YU SAO – COURSE RELEASED
Literal meanings for ‘Som Gin’ are three steps forward, three arrows, or three scissors, depending on the written Chinese character. All can be found in Hakka Mantis.
Yu Sao or Yu Kiu: Yu translated means ‘shake, rock, wave, turn, wag’. Sao is ‘hand’. Kiu is ‘bridge’. The bridge between you and your opponent will usually be the arm and hand 70% of the time. Remember the Mantis saying, ‘when skillful, then the whole body is a hand’.
Hence, this Form ‘Yu Sao’ is the skill of vibrating force like shaking and rocking, waving and turning, and wagging which throws off the opponent and uproots his balance, while striking with fists and fingers, and kicks like arrows flying.
The Som Gin Yu Sao, is a completely different Form in Chu Gar and China Kwongsai Mantis. And it does not exist in USA Kwongsai Mantis or Iron Ox Mantis.
Chu Gar ‘Yu Sao’ is generally taught as the second Form training. In China Kwongsai Mantis, it may be taught as the fourth or fifth Form with ‘Say Mun Four Doors’ Form sometimes taught before ‘Yu Sao’.
‘Yu Sao’ is sometimes thought of as a Single Bridge Form, but in fact, it is both Single Bridge and Double Bridge training. This applies to both Chu Gar and China Kwongsai Mantis.
The Chu Gar ‘Yu Sao’ typically does not have kicking skills, whereas, one may see a single low right kick, or left kick or a double low kick, or even a ‘running three low Buddha kicks’ to the inside of the shins, in Kwongsai Mantis.
China Kwongsai Som Gin Yu Sao is a complex Form utilizing 90 degree shifting footwork, four corner diagonal footwork patterns, circular turn arounds, side stepping, straight line chasing steps together with basic, intermediate, and advanced hand skills such as ‘Three Stars’, Jung Sao Uppercuts, Pao Sao Throwing Out Elbows, Linked Phoenix and Hammer Fists with Pai Sao Knife Hand strikes, to name a few.
All Forms are taught in progressive step by step, bite sized chunks, with transmission from A to Z, beginning to advanced. Usually the later advanced forms are more complex and involve footwork patterns that maybe circular, diagonal, or zig-zag, whereas the beginning forms are usually straight line and turn arounds.
This Yu Sao Form is recommended. It is an excellent form expressing varied boxing skills, complex footwork patterns, and internal sink, float, swallow, and spit. Like all your Hakka Mantis Courses Online this Yu Sao form is broken down step by step, section by section to make your Form training useful.
