In Wing Chun

fut/fat sao - buddha palm
dui sao - chopping hand
gang sao - crossing/cutting hand

but I don't know if this is what the poster was asking about?

Thanks for the replies.

I'm actually familiar with the Wing Chun hand names.

My question was aiming more towards just the general terms. I guess an easier way to explain this would be that I'm looking for terms that I could use if I were to go to China. It'd be weird to go up to a Chinese guy and say "snap kick".

Here's the few mandarin terms I know, if it helps: (apologies for some of the phonetics)

Side kick - tsuh ti
Axe kick - pi tui
Front kick - chien ti (I suppose this could be a snap/toe kick?)

Hope this helps......
snap kick = sern tak
turn kick as in round house? = yern tak
cresent kick = ngau lim tak
jumping cresent = til ngau lim tak
open hand = need to be a bit more specific...
if its a block could be pak sao/ sat sao/ or if its a strike
could be dip jurn/shat geng sao
all above are cantonese...hope this helps..
