Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do Trapping Techniques – Lap Sao
Welcome to another Jeet Kune Do video
trapping technique. Today I’m going to show you the Lap Sao which is the
pulling hand. Now in the other videos I show you the Pak Sao which is slapping
hand. What’s the difference between the two? You also see it in Bruce Lee’s movie.
Now however just because Bruce does it in a movie doesn’t mean that’s how you
should do it. Not necessarily. Experiment with it. So we have the Pak Sao which is slapping hand. Now the Lap Sao which is pulling hand
it’s a pulling motion obviously. It’s when the opponent is feeding you a
forward pressure energy. Instead of fighting it I try to do Pak Sao. Give
me full force. See it’s very hard but instead he gives me energy
it’s much easier if I redirect it. Now the key with the whole thing is you’re
not pulling with your arm. Because if I — look at the muscle if I try to pull it
with my arm Shin — see it doesn’t work. Now
so you want to pull into your body your elbow and then you’re turning. So I’m not
just doing this — this is nice but I’m using my body. See that. So it’s like this
in the same time this punch through right. So it’s this kind of motion right.
So it’s shoot right — this is coming it’s like a two train hitting together. Not just
one type boom right there right that’s how it works. One more time – or you can
see the the power of that like your turn my body I turn my body. Wrong wrong right
right. Now Shin try to move. See right that’s what I’m talking about. That’s
what you want from here. I’m controlling right I’m controlling right. So from here
now one problem with it is if once I do Lap Sao and a lot of guys “Oh a Lap Sao” you don’t want the Lap Sao and you stay here I’m looking at you she’s
looking at me because it means he can hit me then I can hit him at the same
time okay. Shin try a Lap Sao and then punch at same time. See that boom.
Not good okay not good. What you want is you want to make him off balance. Make him
off balance see that. Now this is all open and that’s what you do. So from here
we did a Pak Sao now here’s the thing footwork wise turn your body makes sure you
turn your body. I personally don’t like it this way cause you get hit, I get hit.
Make sure he’s off balance but ideally it’s actually much better when — I with
the opposite stance. So let’s say Shin takes a left stance. This I would do all
day long. I’m pulling from here because this I’m safe look at the hand that is
far away right and if I pull and also I have more my bone mechanic. Right see
the power right. So from here and if I’m good this — boom and this is all open, this is
all — this is all open right this is all open. So I like to Lap Sao this way.
Now so when you practice as a drill so Shin you do a couple — do a Lap Sao.
See awesome nice power see — try again. Boom. See — it shouldn’t be — not don’t do
too much power stay the same time. See this is no good.
This is very bad habit you see a lot of Wing Chun guys to do this all fucking day
long. Okay try again boom — see that? So right right right side to the right side
and you can practice. Left side, right side right. So this way so Shin you can try
Lap Sao I’ll do the left side. Right so here see that pull — actually this way okay this
way. Awesome try again see right there.
Try again. You can see the power — that motion. Yeah if you practice this enough on the
wooden dummy — you see the wooden dummy you can move the dummy –you can move a
person. Very very powerful right you can move the wrist from here once you pull
it off the dummy stance is all good right from here. All right when he is
here this is all done and usually you can hit here and from here chop to the
neck and usually from here it’s like that right. And you can feel that a big
chest but you can feel. But that’s to the neck right. That’s like 30% power we
really get from here you turn and you go boom and you send a guy flying. And that’s
what you don’t see it oh what the hell are you hitting the wooden dummy like
that. Feel it you know what I mean so that’s the Lap Sao drill hope you
