Movements include pointing of arms in different directions, bending the arms, swinging the arms whilst straight and bent, and the circling of the hand around the head.
Muzzing was named after the Ã¢ÂÂmuzzasÃ¢ÂÂ (a recent Australian term with a similar meaning to Ã¢ÂÂwogÃ¢ÂÂ) who first performed it. The original form of muzzing, sometimes referred to today as Ã¢ÂÂwog muzzingÃ¢ÂÂ (as opposed to the more recent Ã¢ÂÂAsian muzzingÃ¢ÂÂ) involves the feet generally being firmly planted on the ground, often the legs are slightly bent given a more of a squat or crouched position. The muscles of the core and arms are tensed, and the movements are frenetic, rigid and abrupt. It is described by practitioners and others as a display of dominance. The deceased recreational bodybuilder Zyzz (Aziz Shavershian) is credited as popularising this form of muzzing.
In recent years muzzing has been appropriated by Asians and adapted to Ã¢ÂÂreflect Asian sensibilitiesÃ¢ÂÂ (as one research participant stated). This new form of Asian muzzing, otherwise known as chopping, differs from traditional muzzing as it is faster, involves hip thrusting and slightly more movement of the feet and legs, is more precise, controlled and technical, and involves less muscle tensing (and may not involve muscle tensing at all). Asian muzzing appears to be performed by equal numbers of men and women.
