Here is a clip of Wang Pei Shengs’ son Wang NaiXiang teaching pushhands. Looks like he’s got some of the subtle goods from his father. Notice how in some examples he leads an opponents attention to emptiness and unbalance before he even touches.

what do you guys think?

Call me a skeptic, but I’d have to feel this and have it done to me this effortlessly to believe it (I’m referring to this “no touch” stuff). Out of curiosity, has anyone actually experienced this? I’m not being negative, per se, and would love to feel and experience this and be able to say it is real and that it exists. Why is it that all these demonstrations always have cooperative students shown, and not non-compliant people even with the least bit of martial skill? If this is real, why is this type of skill very seldom seen or why can seemingly so few do this type of thing? Why is it that those who can do this are not more openly passing this on? Just think of what it could do for the promotion of Chinese Martial Arts, especially the internal arts. As I said before, this could revolutionize sports such as wrestling, judo, mma, american football,… Just my 2 cents.

Gary if you’ve read up about the history of master Wang Pei Sheng you know he’s no faker. This isn’t about no touch energy strike or anything like that, but the ability to affect a persons balance through redirection and leading intent and use of feints to disrupt. You bring up popular sports like football and examples of real life usage. But you can see things like that in football as well, where someone with the ball fakes to the right and fakes to the left and causes the other guy to commit his balance and fall on his own as he spins away. That is a more overt version of the kind of skill shown in these videos. At least of my understanding of it.
