The Origins of Sticky Hands

Click picture to view video.

It has been some time since our last animal clip. Many martial arts are said to be inspired by animals. Are these just founders' myths or is there some truth to them? The answer could lie more in the latter hypothesis. Most urban people are not familiar with how well animals can fight, if they are, they might be moved to copy a few tricks too. This clip shows what might possibly be the inspiration for Sticky Hands (also known as Sticking Hands or Chi Sao), and its variations, found in martial arts such as Wing Chun and Taiji. Tongue-in-cheek of course, or perhaps not, more in a later article.
