    It shows how the Olympic Gold medalist team from Bulgaria had seminars from WT in the 1990's, and Made the Si-Gung of Europe an Honary Professor because they valued his contributions. (i.e. Wrestlers using "chi sau").

    When you punch, and it meets another punch, your reflexes can kick in to make a "block". It is faster then trying to bob and weave or guess what block to use.

    or you can just trade blows....

Nothing I've seen of wing chun carries over to real fighting.

    -And WTF with the editing of posts? That's a BITCH move...
    Where was the definition of chi sao expanded? I simply repeated the definition of chi sao and added an example of it in application.

    This is correct, wing chun does not promote grappling. I have found this grappling application while cross training with friends who train BJJ.

    -It does nothing of the sort. It makes a few unsubstanciated claims with nothing to back it up.

    -You are not only clueless about grappling, you are clueless about striking too.

    -I was just beating the Wing Chunners to their next argument in case somebody mentioned hand fighting.

    Chi sao is not push hands. Chi sao is some wing chun thing. Push hands is a general name for a whole bunch of different drills.

    Push hands can be something fairly "dead" like this:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znVWJ...h=push%20hands
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2cqK...h=push%20hands

    or it can be more freeform like this:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eYWMM...h=push%20hands
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqhAv...h=push%20hands
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ok3PG...h=push%20hands

    And even more freeform, though still limited to crossarm contact:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cs8HW...h=push%20hands

    And then it gets applied to throwing and clinchwork:

    http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...796596&q=shuai

    (Guys from two different arts that use push hands -- including shuai jiao wrestlers.)

    To get the kinds of attributes you *also* find at the beginning of this:

    http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...01&q=grappling

    . . . by guys who I assume don't have any PH experience at all.

    Push hands is a progressive practice that tries to encompass a whole lot of things, and that's probably it's meain weakness. As a progressive series of methods, it tries to cover entries for:

    * Straight up throwing.
    * Striking.
    * Standing come-along style holds.

    . . . so the curriculum is a bit large and holistic for its own good. For example, the wrestlers in the last video are doing things few Tai chi people whould ever do by dropping their heads and A-framing (otr whatever it's called). A Tai Chi guy would take a more upright posture because it's preferential striking and standing holds, but the pure grapplers are in a better position for takedown defense and DLTs. One definite flaw in push hands compared to pummeling is that PH practice teaches you to maintain peng (the distance and shape of your standup guard) instead of getting chest to chest. There are exceptions to this, but so much of it depends on what you're specifically practicing.
