Master Chen, when it comes to “stick energy” how much of the body method in the Practical Method form do you think was influenced by weapon usage back in the old days? When you show that posture I can almost imagine it supporting a long spear.

Other internal arts also seem to reference the usage of spear or stick work in it’s body methods. For example this Hsing I master.

The stick mentioned is an aid to focus energy. In push hand, this stick-line can be in myriad orientations, not limited to ones that are held in the hands.
