    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    What's the real application of push hands/chi sao?

    I see so many references to the quality of masters' push hands.
    What real application does this have to striking or fighting?

    Develope tactile sensitivty so your forearm skin and muscle memory can respond when your punches encouter the enemys punches (or legs, or grapples, or whatever), based on the pressure, not on sight.

    It must be done in conjunction with Sparring using the same techniques, but with actual punches, called Lat sau in WT, and with other drills.

    Really? I always thought it had more to do with distance and timing than fucking FOREARMSKIN SENSITIVITY WHEN INTERCEPTED.......

    Seriously. What the ****?

    Push hands is for people who want contact but don't want to get injured. Sorta like point sparring with heavy padding.

    It's a way for _ing _unners to feel like they are fighting without actually fighting.

    Instead they use labels like, "Sensitivity training", "tactile response" and "muscle memory" in order to justify it.

    I'm told that its supposed to teach how to absorb an attackers weight or something like that.

    My school doesn't use it. Sifu focuses on fighting mainly.

    I bet you would like to know. I have been doing push hands for years. Great drill. Find someone to show you the drill. it becomes self evident in short order. Help locking or striking? Yes.
