Hand Trapping Series #2
Today we open up the hand trapping series with a guy named Bobbe Edmonds demonstrating a "gate trapping" technique. This one involves rolling the elbow over the opponents arm. What intrests me is that we have used this elbow roll (Sorry, I'm not up on wing chun terminology) but it was generally with a backfist strike instead of a trap. Here he traps both of the opponent's arms and then with a slight variation, locks one arm against the other. Nice...
And you gotta love the informal setting, in an unfinished garage--Very Dojo Rat!
