In Wing Chun Quan, the technique of pressing the hand has its own uniqueness. The pressing hand can be divided into two types: pressing the inner curtain and pressing the outer curtain. Pressing the inner curtain is a means of controlling the enemy’s hand when the inner door of one’s own hand comes into contact with the opponent’s hand.
Under certain conditions, whether one’s inner or outer door touches the opponent’s hand, it can be suppressed, achieving the effect of controlling the enemy.
Zero clamp Yang Ma stands at a stake, bending his elbows with his right palm facing upwards and his left palm facing downwards. His hands intersect in front of his chest, his right hand below, and his left palm pressed against his wrist. Press down with the right hand to create a press, while the left hand changes from palm to fist, punching straight, and turning 45 degrees to the right. (Figures 1, 2, and 3)
Move your right hand up to your chest, turn your left fist into a palm, cross your nine hands in front of the moon, with your left hand in front and your right hand behind. Press down with your left hand and punch with your right hand, rotating your body 45 degrees to the left. (Figures 4 and 5)
When pressing the hand, the movements should be light, crisp, and direct, without dragging mud or water. At the same time, the downward force should not be too strong, and it should be combined with exhalation to block.
When the two sides faced off, the other party punched me in the chest with a straight right punch, and I intercepted the other party with a left outer shoulder. (Figures 1 and 2)
The opponent punched me in the chest with a straight left punch, and I used the left inner/outer leg to cut and then turned my waist to press, while punching the opponent’s jaw with a right punch. (Figures 3 and 4)
The opponent hit me directly with their right swing fist, and I intercepted them with my right inner door. At the same time, I turned my waist to press down and punched the opponent’s head with my left fist. (Figures 5 and 6)
The left knowing hand simultaneously punches the opponent on the cheek with the right fist, and then attacks the neck with the left palm to repel the opponent. (Figures 7, 8, 9)
