Things to remember 

  • Never push your opponent- just stretch your body
  • Find an empty space and direct the force to the emptiness
  • Constantly adjust to your opponent push by filling the space between you and your opponent.
  • When stretching, stretch along the length of your body ( vertical stretch)
  • Lock one side always so you can move your other part.
  • When your lower body is advancing your upper body will need to retrieve backward.
  • When stretching arms, lock shoulders and wrist, cage ribs. Energy will come from chest
  • The closer you are the more you will be able to stretch
  • When moving your body forward “sneaking in” to get closer to your opponent, feet in first then hands.
  • Chest/ rib always tucked in/ caged
  • Lock elbow, shoulder and wrist and open your Kua. Force will come from hip.
  • There are always 3 points, if you gave one point to your opponent, then lock/control the other two points
