Bruce Lee’s JKD Double Sticky Hand Techniques Chi Sao

Bruce Lee’s JKD Double Sticky Hand Techniques Chi Sao

(dramatic music) – So this is the second video, if you watched the previous
video we show you the basics of how to do sticky
hands, the double Chi Sao. Now today, Steve’s gonna show you how, some of the techniques of
basically like how do you, hit each other and what’s
the purpose behind it. So Steve what would be the first, like a drill or a
technique that I could do. – Alright the first one,
would be on the basis that the knee, puts pressure
with this left hand, and he’s giving me pressure
now depending on where his elbow is positioned, all I can, all I have to do is just shift a little bit and he ends up getting hit. Now I, keep you on a static position, just so you can get used to
this I’m gonna pull on that arm. Okay, and in actual combat
would it really work it just depends on how close
you are to the opponent and if the guy is sweaty. So if I do get here at this point, okay I’m coming right back
to hit, with that same one. Okay, whether or not you know, I grab him or not, it just depends on that slight little angle, and I’m in. – So if I’m doing it wrong
I’m feeding energy to see if I’m like pushing like a
trying to muscle him right. Like, so he uses that
force against me right. Good. Yep so it’s not like I’m telling him oh okay here we go I’m gonna push. No I just give him the
energy and boom it will hit. – So, it depends on
how your looking at it, if I’m teaching you
this, you’re gonna end up getting what’s called the lop sou. And it’s supposed to be explosive and if you can get him enough to where, you get him offline here. You can carry that over
which is the hook punch. At that point okay so. – I can slow down a little bit, right here, boom, boom. You see all my weapons
are facing that way right. Right here, one more time, let’s see. – We’ll give a better, better visual here. So it goes here
– Now push. – Boom. Boom. – And see what about his hand. – This one is staying in
contact the whole time. Don’t disengage from this okay. – Don’t just try to think about hitting and forget this, okay. – What happens is that
he corrects himself too sometimes if I do this and I’m coming right back this is gonna correct. But he may end up forgetting
about this so this one hits. Okay, so. So by this time, he’s
giving you the pressure I may be not going all the
way but he corrects his self, to try to cancel that
out but this is hitting. This is gonna still try to go forward and he may end up
attacking, and then we could take it on and on and
on it’s like a puzzle. But at the same time,
let’s just look at it, he gives me pressure,
and just depending on where your feeling, sometimes I cannot, indicate, or tell you exactly
if it’s gonna work that way ’cause as soon as it
gives you that feeling, I’m just gonna go, with it. – Alright then, okay. So that’s the first, technique,
and the second one SiFu? – Okay the second one, is, – Pushing this way. – This. – This pressure, is pushing this way. It’s this angle, so now I’m
trying to muscle this way. – Right. – You see how naturally that, right there. – So, this hand, here, keep aware of this other hand it’s hidden okay. So, most of us are used to being very passive by grabbing right. In the art of JKD, you end up hitting. – Causing motion. – Yes. – And this is gliding it needs to cut. – Correct, and then by that time you’re either gonna continue
hitting with this one, or if you can carry it
this way that’s fine but just as long as you’re hitting, soon as he passes, I’m cutting. – So it’s also how, I’m
off balance, like that. – Now sometimes you
have to look at this as second intention if I’m
intending to hit him I have to get him to react
and we’re going back to, something to where, if I can
get him to react to this, he’s gonna correct himself, right. And by that time, I’m
hitting with this other hand. By the time he’s, giving
me a passive move, he should already be
getting hit, on that hand. – So the first is almost a set up, ’cause I can see when
this punch is coming like, then I’m like oh my God, I
don’t wanna get head poked. That’s because when this is coming, I push it away and you can
see the opening right there. This one right there. – Alright, you may be wondering
what I’m doing with this hand, it’s preparing itself
for back fist so if he gives me that pressure,
here, it’s right there. – Right there, right. – Yeah, and sometimes I can
keep it more economically, intact, yeah just right there
and that keeps it very simple but I love doing the back
fist so if they do this, it’s gonna go right into that. – And also, it’s also, almost
like this your whole body. – Yes. – It’s right there so, right there. – Yeah, and I utilize
the, hip a lot in this so, if you were to be, right
there off that line and giving pressure back, I’m
gonna take that using the hip, right into it, okay, that was hard to see off of that angle but if get on this side. There, right there. Yeah, and as long as you’re in control. Okay, it’s very combative,
it’s very offensive. There is no, if I concentrated on too many on top positions, the hook position, this kind of a position,
it’s too much for me. So, what we have to do
is just make sure we’re attacking on every single motion, and you end up finding an opening. – Right, okay so that
the second technique. Now see what this is, pressure this way pressure this way, what about this hand? – This one is a, if you were to give me. – I guess if I having an opening really. – Oh that’s, yeah simple right. – But if I’m dropping like my posture. Like my posture is bad, right there. – Yeah that hits, each time
there’s an opening you hit, or there’s complete, it’s pretty obvious. – Lazy, like my shoulder’s getting lazy. – But let’s look at it
from that standpoint that, if Dan pulls me, I gave
him pressure and he pulls. – So I’m using the
technique that, we just, this technique we just learned right. So I’m using it here, right
you can see right, right there. Right, right there. See that, one more time. Put it together. And you might wanna re watch
this a couple of times, ’cause it takes you need a
see it right so from here. So you can see I’m trying
to do that, the technique. Right. Yeah, you see how he diffuses my energy. Okay one more time. Right. One more time. Make sure you get the pull alright. – Sure. – Alright, and again any
questions comment below. As you are watching
this ’cause you may be, well what about the hand positions? What about the energy and
things like that right? – You see so by attacking, I’m also, leaving myself vulnerability,
as I try to attack. So now it’s all easy as he comes in right. See what about also I push it this way? – If you’re pushin me this way, okay I’m gonna carry it, this way. – See that one more time. So if I’m pushing, so it’s not facing fighting force with force it’s
he use my energy, see that. How my hand just flies, okay
one more time, right boom. – All you’re doing is just,
creating an opening there and there’S pressure
there I’m just gonna, hit. Kay this hand’s ready to go to. By that time I go boom and
here, it gives me pressure, I just roll it this way. – Go back to that right. So here’s what it look like,
when it’s all mixed together. (dramatic music) (laughing) – Hit. – So as you can see it
just flows, it just flows. – Yeah, and we’re just
workin ‘together just, being friendly that’s how
Chi Sao is supposed to be. We’re not gonna fight each other. – Otherwise you have no friends left and nobody wants to spar with you. Right, so you wanna do that, now so, see when we are practicing it’s important to come to it slow. – Yeah, yeah yeah, yeah. – I know it looks good, oh
and you’re hitting each other, but make sure you’re form is correct. It’s so easy to get fleshy
and then get sloppy right. – Right, right, it could you know control, the techniques or control, the drills, nice and slow and in
actual combat it may not go exactly the way you’re training it, but get in the feeling that where you can apply it whenever there’s a void. – Yeah and don’t try to get stuck in, I know I see a lot of untrained guys, they get so focused on the technique. – Right. – That they do A, and
do B and do C, you do D. They have a hundred
techniques in their mind, you don’t that, we use how
many, like three four five? – At best I can only use
two I mean it’s just, I’m not gonna go into intricacy. I mean for me, I don’t have that time, I need to just get it done. – Right, so it looks like this, many, many, many different techniques but it’s actually, two three techniques. – Yeah. – And there’s many many
different variations. – Right. – So just keep that in mind, again, comment below if you have any questions. We will make a future
video based, on that. Hit the subscribe button, subscribe below. You wanna watch our other JKD videos, click on the, on the right side as well. Until next time, practice Chi Sao, be safe, train hard,

    Don't like the video? If you would be so kind as to
    FUCK OFF, it would be very much appreciated.
    You don't have to watch any of Dan's videos.

  • Good lord, Dan. Your Sifu is bloody fast.
    I'm glad to see such a great martial art is being passed down and instructed by able and intelligible people with speed and mobility and mind!
    Love your videos, and I learn something from them every day.

  • Dan, the quality of your videos is incredible. Sometimes I wonder how awesome was Bruce Lee to create all of this. Every day I'm reading about the philosophy of JKD, I'm really amazed. Thank you so much for this work with sifu Octavio!! I'm showing to all my friends in Brazil!

  • Great work good stuff brief explanation in every video,but yet some STUPID`S GIVE THUMBS DOWN They are real SHIT. I Will apply this in my technique,because i m doing boxing in JKD stance,and doing few of JKDs techniques you taught in every video like backfist,and also using the SAVATE, MUAY THAI and FILIPINO ART in fights, thanks sir.

  • Great video man. Do you have any tips for applying chi sao principles from a distance or as a single counter perhaps, like against a jab or straight. I really like the principle and want to work it into my striking. Thanks

  • Dan, should I be in the JKD footwork with the back leg as a spring.?
    I noticed that sifu Octavio and sifu Dan were kind of in that position but the left foot was relaxed.
    Also, love the intro of the video.

  • What i got is.. first we train the basic, and when in fight there is no rules (flow like a water).. dont think too much on how to fight

  • Great tips and ideas, and great control to not smash the face. I’m loving these new combined instruction vids with you and sifu Octavio

  • I'really enjoy these keep em coming your business mind and martial arts ability combined now i understand the succes in life.

  • Bamboo Spirit Martial Arts says:

    Great video. I like seeing the concepts that overlap JKD/Chinese martial arts and Filipino Martial Arts. Very similar. Also, thanks for the captioning. 🙂

  • I think you cover things clearly with great camera angles…You give enough info but not too much for what your teaching. Thank you for your time and effort!

  • Sigung lee one said that " chi sao is out"
    Yet trapping is still included in the 5 ways of attack.
    What was his theory at that time?

  • Vinayak Kamat says:

    Trapping hands non telegraphic punch and short distance punches surly ease to win fight very nice teaching

  • Jay Ceester Deester says:

    Can you guys talk more about the angled stance verses the traditional front facing of Wing Chun? Has to do with a side stance being safer?

  • russell davies says:

    THE PURPOSE OF CHI SAO – is (1) to MONITOR (in real time) your opponent's intentions/direction/energy – THE FORWARD HAND in the stance is called THE INQUIRING HAND, purpose of which is to "MAKE THE BRIDGE' which puts you in immediate contact to FEEL WHAT'S COMING (quicker, more immediate then 'seeing'). At some initial point "his" hands/arms are in CONTACT with yours – you can SENSE moment-to-moment his intentions AND (2) control/divert/trap his hands/arms. Until you 'make the bridge' you're guessing – this is how/why advanced students practice BLINDFOLDED – contact with the opponent tells you everything you need to know – quicker. I studied with Hawkens a classmate of Lee's in Hong Kong with Yip Mann – thx
