    A "round" is like a minute, with interminable breaks for re-setting and whatnot. There's no reason to be all wrapped up in rules and timing—you mentioned, pages and pages ago that you would roll with anyone, and I mentioned that any old lady would push hands with anyone. Then you offered to push hands with me, and me following of the footsteps of many an old lady, said sure. As I would say to anyone I met in a park. Usually, I ask them "What game would you like to play?" and generally they either have something specific to work on, or just want to goof around, or they're a junior bad-ass and want to make sure that they shall ever be King of the Playground.

    I'm happy to try any set of games you wish to play, but don't get all wrapped up in rules. The rules exist, to the extent that they do at all, to better practice whatever the players wish to practice. (Fixed step is good for rooting, for example; moving for keeping one's structure while walking or running or shuffling.)

    So how about: fixed step till someone gets bored, followed by moving till someone gets bored, followed by footwork playing till someone gets bored, then if anyone has anything else they want to give a whirl to, doing that till someone gets bored, including going back to fixed step or trying something else entirely or just calling a day and going to Redbones. I'll try to remember to pack my jacket if practicing gripping would be interesting too.

    No rules is good rules. Redbones is cool. We usually eat in Central but Redline is right on the T, and 'bones is 3 stops away in Davis. If we need a bar, Johnny D's is wicked close by.

    I will try to get Strike out of TD retirement for this one.

    This sort of thing? The later bit with the headgear, I mean.
    Funny we do that as a worm up sometimes. We are also allowed to grab the leg.
    The point is to make the other guy lose balance by pushing or pulling. I'm pretty good at it :)

    I can't wait to roll with you now that you've been training. You have a ton of heart.

    Yup—it's a good set of drills. Leg-grabbing, neck-wrapping etc. is "allowed" if the people involved say, "Hey, let's play with leg grabbing and neck wrapping." That's why I find it odd all this talking about the rules and formats. They're generally decided on the spot, for maximum fun and mutual safety. Tournaments are a different story, but they're generally pretty silly.

    Of course nobody knows this to be the case if they haven't been exposed to it yet.

    There are a number of threads on the topic of pushing hands here on Bullshido. It's an educational service site, after all.
