    All those plus grappling. (I had to say it before someone else did <img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>) Seriously, you use sensitivity a lot since it's kinda hard to see with someone on top of you.

    i just need to get that puppy

    "Try push hands or any other unbalancing game. Vary the hand positioning in Chi Sao. For instance, start in side stance or boxing stance, or with arms in a non-WC position and Chi Sao from there. See what happens when you block hard vs. deflect softly. Experiment."
    yeap, myself and another dude went pretty crazy on each other, heheh fun

    this may sound hokey .. but people learn to ignore so much .. be alert! Notice everything, watch people, when someone moves and you hear it .. react, look, when you feel someone close to you react, look .. don't ignore it. After a while that stuff will become natural/instinctive and you'll start noticing deeper stuff. You'll see that hand out of the corner of your eye and have yours up before that kid picks his nose. When that becomes second nature then you'll start knowing before you see it .. their shoulders move.. whatever .. sensativity comes gradually. Just be aware.

    You can't do it in the dojo, it has to be all day and every day.

    I don't know how to explain it but for a long time now I've been able to feel things like that, I don't know if its good hearing, eyesight, feeling the vibrations .. or some kind of spiritual proximity sense or super hero comic book whatever power or if I am turning into Miss Cleo .. maybe its my super-duper chi magneto spider sense manifesting! I am a mutant! Holy Crap!

    hatever it is .. it makes it really annoying to sit in a crowded room .. I hear every noise and i want to look .. when a guy raises his hand i hear it, see it and feel where it is .. I know there is a logical explanation for it .. I think its just being alert.

    Then again I go crazy when a girl touches my neck. Maybe I have sensative skin.. but that wouldn't explain how I know a bird is flying over me.. I think its being sensative to light, sound and things.. just paying attention..

    All I know is that something that helped me in Jr High was Massakai Hatsumi's force of the killer stuff.. he said to sit and meditate.. empty yourself of all emotion and thought and listen.. take in what was around you.. then they would have a guy behind them with a sword swing at them, but before he did he would project his intent to harm you.. and you would feel it and roll.. a drill for ninjas..

    I don't know! Dude, I just made myself look like an idiot to most people in here so I hope you got something out of it.. I can't explain it..

    blind-fold chi-sao trains you to rely more on sensitivity/feeling and less on your eyes (obviously). but i wouldn't recomend both you and pertner being blind-folded. That can end up messy

    When I did WC, I used to close my eyes during just about any drill: Bong-Tan-Pak, Three-star, etc.

    But any kind of contact over time will develop sensitivity. You'll have to be mindful of what you're doing, however.

    In other words dont watch "Dr. Phil."

    Seriously I think with chi sau people spend far too much time trying to develope "sensitivity". Its much more worth while to use chi sao for developing speed than anything else.
