Thanks stonecrusher69.

What I understand, is that the Fut Sao is an earlier Wing Chun system, which is more softer and internal (pacifist based or Buddha influenced) than the rest that practice Chi Sao?

(As Sifu R. Williams has been highly criticized for his lack of sensitivity)

(As Ip Man, didn't give his students any control over the center line when doing Chi Sao)

This is now considered to not be used while practicing Chi Sao, as both practioners should benefit from this exercise, or the more experienced giving some slack for the inexperienced to build up their speed and sensitivity skills as needed.


I try to avoid saying this is older, more internal because it tends to get some people upset so I just leave it up to the reader to decide for them self.

Chi Sau is such a wonderful aspect of the Chinese martial arts. I always feel vulnerable on the high line when I am doing Chi Sau. What a great tool to learn tactile sensitivity.
