Thanks! One point of confusion on my part--is the defender's right arm involved in any of that application?

Could you go into some detail on one of those applications, perhaps describing it in stages?

comment How, historically, did American push-hands get so restrictive in comparison to Chinese push-hands?
@BerinLoritsch That's undeniably true in karate as well, but judo and wrestling have been able to keep their rules as-is. Also, judging from the Pushing the Issue documentary, I doubt that many organizers of light-contact events would prefer to run Chinese-style, hard-wrestling ones.

Great question. I gave it a shot, but I hope we get someone with extensive kickboxing and/or relevant medical experience to weigh in with some facts.

@sidran32 True. Stance training can be good stuff. However, it's important to keep in mind that tiring and difficult does not always equal productive.

@sidran32 Not everyone needs powerlifting-class strength, but squats and presses are probably superior to forms-only practice for building any level of strength for anyone but the most infirm.
