This exercise has nothing to do with the demonstration by some masters being pushed by a line of people, mostly more than ten, to demonstrate how strong and rooted they are. This is an exercise Master Chen Zhonghua used at a workshop in Victoria, B.C. Canada in 2006 to train the pusher to get used to the experience of pushing into something very strong but is human. An exercise before this one is to push the wall, which provides static resistance. The pusher has to deal with:
- Difficulty in lining up his/her own energy to push through the line of people.
Of course an exercise like this also is a lot of fun.
