This week we are covering the use of the lap sau and jut sau application in programme 3.Programme 3 focuses on trapping and flanking your opponent from out of range, to a close range position - while closing distance.The programme stresses that to do this safely without risk of being it, is to either “trap” the opponents arms in a position that he or she cannot strike. Or position yourself in a place where your opponent cannot strike you immediately, while closing the space between you and your opponent. For example, defending a strike to immediately step around to the opponents back. Or to trap by crossing and then pinning to the opponents arms to his or her body followed by a strike.Learning trapping and flanking is an essential skill in self defence. Without the use of trapping and flanking in a combat system or martial art, we have no way to safety counter an opponents attack, while insuring we are safe ourselves.
