How to do the Wu Tang
Let's start by getting into the underlying groove of the Wu Tang. Begin rocking from side to side to an easy-to-follow beat. As you’re rocking, allow your hips to swing back and your chest to swing forward.
Now, let’s add in the arms. Stand with your feet wide and squat down slightly. Then, take your right arm and bring it across your chest. As you do so, act like you’re grabbing something to the left of you, starting with an open hand and closing it to a fist as your right hand goes from the right of your body to the left of your body, and keeping the fist closed as it returns to the right.
Practice this grabbing motion on both the right and left side. As you go from left grab to right grab, allow your hips to rock as if they’re following after the grabbing arm.
Next, you’re going to do a similar motion to the front! You’re going to rock your hips straight forward and straight back. Your arms are going to reach out in front of you making an “X” shape (right arm over left or vice versa), and then pull back to your sides.
Lastly, you’re going to do a pounding motion with your arms as if you’re reaching up and pounding a table that’s chest high. Again, for this arm motion, your hips are rocking straight forward and back.
Practice the 4 motions – right grab, left grab, criss-cross, pound – over and over to the beat. Once you have it down, double your speed.
You can also do a variation of this move where you 2 step as you do the criss-cross and pound motions.
If you wanna try that out, use the video above as a reference!
