Sticky Hands of Wing Chun

In last year's hit kung fu movie Ip Man, the titular character, Wing Chun Grandmaster Ip Man, was portrayed as being the father to a young son Ip Chun. Well, the young son is a real person as is now an 85 year old Sifu living in Hong Kong. Shown in this video is Sifu Ip Chun demonstrating Chi Sao or sticky hands with his students.

 Sticky hands is a technique whereby a kung fu practitioner senses and counters the attack of an opponent by touch instead of sight. Though sticky hands is typically associated with Wing Chun, similar methods are found in other martial arts, such as push hands in taiji and rolling hands in bagua.  Hong Kong
