Shovels hooks are short power? The only way short power works?
Lots o kung-fu and some karate people love to talk about short power, the way it's done in taiji. It has principles and everything.
But the thing is, it's almost never really used.
Shovel hooks, on the other hand follow many the principles of short power and they work really damn well!
Yet most(not all) of my fellow TMA people dont consider it the same; they even look down on hooks themselves!
But if anything, it seems like the application of short power to me; the real use for it seems to be the shovel hook.
Is my line of thinking correct?
