Tan sao, or begging hand

A - 1
Precious deflects Florences straight punch, using bon sao ( wing arm )
A - 2
rolling the Bon sao over into Tan sao, Precious clears the line for her own attack
A - 3
turning the Tan sao into a grab, as she steps into close the distance and power her punching arm as it rolls into a elbow strike to the throat
A - 4
Precious finally finishes off with a little know technique "Tan sao strike", unlike the pounding effect of a fist the immense whipping power generated by the open hand smashes into her opponents cheek
B - 1
Sifu Betteridge, defeats Deans straight punch, by stepping diagonally forwards, while at the same time covering the punch and striking low
B - 2
as the low punch now whips up into Tan Sao (note this time the Tan is being used as a "take over trap"), the blocking hand shoots out to palm strike to the neck
B - 3
after chopping the same hand now again "traps" the opponent, as Sifu Betteridge ends it with a straight punch under the jaw
