REVEALING THE SECRET TACTIC OF LEAK HAND

shaolin kung fu

Using this secret tactic of “leak hand” you can often strike an opponent without him knowing where the strike comes from as well as making it impossible for him to counter-strike.

“Leak Hand”, or “Lou Sau” (“Lou Sou” in Mandarin pronunciation) in Chinese, is one of the many important concepts in Shaolin or Hoong Ka Kungfu that is sometimes mentioned but little understood. It is found in many of the kungfu sets in Uncle Righteousness lineage. However, its application was taught only to selected disciples.

In an unprecedented manner, Grandmaster Wong reveals its secret openly here. An important reason for letting out this secret is that Grandmaster Wong does not want the secret to be lost.

There are different ways and different patterns of implementing the tactic of “Leak Hand” The pattern used here is called “Leak Hand Cannon Punch”, which is composed of two patterns, “Leak Hand Tiger-Tail” and “Cannon Punch Towards the Sky”. Like many things in Shaolin Kungfu, its form is simple but its application profound.

Attacking Opponent Almost Irrespective of his Responses

“shaolin

When an opponent responds to your initiate attack, which may be a feint one, and irrespective of whether he brushes it away, grips your attacking arm, dodge to avoid your attack, or almost in any other ways, you move in to strike his groin, often without him realizing it, as well as strike his head. Your footwork must be good, following him closely yet difficult for him to counter-attack you.

Striking Him and Simultaneously Preventing him from Striking You

Be careful that your opponent cannot strike you when you release his grip with a circular movement of your hand. Notice that when you enter into him correctly, your right hand strikes him but at the same time your right arm prevents him from striking you.

Reversing Unfavorable to Favorable Position

“shaolin

How would you escape when an opponent closes your two hands and simultaneously strike you. It is actually quite simple if you know how. Move your back right leg diagonally forward into a left False-Leg Stance and close his two hands instead using “Single Tiger Emerges from Cave”. Isn't it interesting? With a small but correct movement, you reverse the situation when your two hands are closed by your opponent to a situation where you close your opponent's two hands.
