Interesting thought on the Sidewinder gif posted by Oily (#1072 above). Although the sidewinder's method of locomotion is fairly unique among snakes do to it's sandy habitat (I believe there may be other sand dwelling vipers in Africa or elsewhere who also move this way) ....nevertheless, it's method of striking with an S-curve in it's neck and fore-section is typical of pit-vipers and vipers in general and does look a lot like the dynamics of a WC biu-tze sau.

Normally, our elbow would be angled somewhat less sideways and more downward than the totally lateral bend of the snake's neck ...unless we are deflecting an incoming strike to the outside. Then our elbow might look very much like this.

Note on elbow position: Isn't it interesting how as we come to see more of the system, we learn to relax many of the basic rules on particulars, like "elbow always pointing down" etc. and yet become more consistent about applying general concepts. You know, the big picture stuff.

You will have to show me where I said it was made

It was made in a Wing Chun school, like I said. Do you need the exact name? I guess I've got homework to do.

You need to go back and read my post. I really have no clue what you are talking about. I never said anything was made up. My posts clearly were only talking about a picture KFW posted . Nothing else. Just commenting on using a promo picture to extrapolate real fighting techniques that's all. I never said anything about the technique. Nothing wrong with the bui . The bui is real,the punch is real and the pak is real. Just what is shown in the picture is very unreal.

I already read your post once, that was enough, you said it was from a movie promo.

What is shown in the picture that is unreal? The concept of striking at the eyes? That's pretty real. Striking fast through the air itself? Very real.

And why do you keep saying "bui" instead of "biu"?

You clearly need to read my post several more times. I said nothing of the kind. You need to get past you confirmation bias and work on your comprehension.

Me too! When I read the part Oily posted in reference to your previous post, stating that "...it was from from a movie promo..." I swear I read it as movie porno.

Oh well, carry on...
