The Mistakes I Make with Fook Sau

Today I reveal the mistakes I make when I use Fook Sau and I need your help to improve it!

Fook Sau is a really great technique for protecting the centerline but I have a lot of trouble maintaining a good Fook Sau. Here are three ways my Fook Sau fall apart.

1) I think my Fook Sau is in good position so when it moves out of place, I don’t notice that my elbow is no longer protecting my centerline making it easy for my opponent to go through my Fook Sau.

2) I use my Fook Sau’s point of contact (my wrist) to keep my opponent out of my center without realizing that this brings my elbow out and away from my centerline. Most times I even apply pressure from my wrist and that makes it even easier to take advantage of my unprotected centerline.

3) I focus so hard on keeping my elbow in the center I forget to keep contact with my wrist on my opponent. Once my opponent knows I’m not keeping contact, they can take advantage of it.

This is where I need your help. What are your tips for improving Fook Sau? Leave them in the comments! I appreciate your feedback. I’ll definitely put your suggestions to use and let you know how it goes!
