IMO, the arm drag and switch hands are similar, but the starting point are different.3. What you do in your video makes good sense to me, however you are not starting from the closer chi-sau range with each arm contacting one of your opponent's. So the details are different, but the concept is the same.
Arm drag - You use your right hand to grab your opponent's left wrist, you use your left hand to grab his left elbow, you then pull his left arm toward your left side.
Switch hands - You use your right hand to grab your opponent's right wrist, you use your left hand to grab his right elbow, you then pull his right arm toward your right side.
Since arm drag start with your right arm deal with your opponent's left arm, it may suit the WC double sticky hand better.
This just lead to another question - Why did the WC double sticky hands start from your right arm to deal with your opponent's left arm? It seems to me that to start from your right arm deal with your opponent's right arm can be as important (if not more important).
What's your though on this?
In this clip, his starts from his right arm deals with his opponent's right arm. He was using "switch hands" without the wrist pulling.
