The best metaphore I know is like when a fight breaks out in a hockey match and they go slamming into each other body to body so you don't really worry about retracting as presumably you have just placed yourself close enough to smell what the other guy had for lunch. "kissing close". Now you have either knocked the guy over, away or are essentially in throwing/sweeping range. Your hips are touching his. You might punch but the basic intent behind most everything is to put yourself that close to the other person.

    Pretty common in Kun Tao, as well. The most common Kun Tao follow-on to the stomp is a gi-normous head butt as you spring up and into your opponent, keeping your foot on the opponent's as you deliver the blow, as opposed to stepping back out into punching range.

    Meng Mao,

    I wear some kind of Chinese versoin of Chuck All Stars. There is no brand logo on them whatsoever. The shoes you mean are about as practical for Baji as training in my bedroom slippers. Ponder this....one time a couple years back, wearing regular sneakers, I actually bruised the bottom of my foot in one spot. Just training outdoors and my foot came down slightly less than flat.

    Nice discussion.

    Sidebar note in case anyone is interested. Wing Chun has a similar step that we refer to as a "shock step"...it is used to put a little extra "spring" in your step.

    Nice, I luv Chinese ripoffs. They are the best.

    I hate doing double kicks because I tend to bruise my feet doing them. I guess I just need to toughen them up.

    In the mantis system I've been exposed to, the stomping is performed to create a whip-like motion in the non-stomping leg: weight travels down, then you stomp and extend the other leg to trip or hook. The stomps accompany kicks, not punches.

    Yeah, but what if he had a weapon? Also, is any of this stuff practical for multiple opponents?

    I always thought foot stomping is meant to hit the other guy's foot, pin it in place, and keep him from moving away from your punch while hurting his foot. Taijutsu has a similar move, but it's not really a stomp. More like a step on top of one of his feet, and when you hit him, it's meant to keep his ankle up while his body goes down, thus snapping the ankle. Well, more like tearing the ligaments...

    Or to hold the opponent in place while you throw him, doing all sorts of nasty things to the ankle.
