Ok, I get the point about it being a crappy elbow.
However, I'd have to disagree partly on the "people not stupid enough" part.
I think, especially in the case of sexual harassment, an aggressor could do something similar to pulling like that. Even though it's stupid. Maybe an osoto-gari would work better?

Where did that music come from? Pirates of the Carribean? and I can't spell today:(
On a side note, I am in no way suggesting awesome music makes the subject matter awesome aswell.

If you are stronger then them in a fight, you just knock them over. You practice that by hitting wallbags and stuff. No need to practice being turned if you are overpowering them. So All the partner drills are for when you are being overpowered.
So, If you Hit and meet resistance, often the difference in the opposing forces is very minor, so this gets back to the gentle chi sau, as you need to feel the minor difference in pressure. (i.e. if its 1001 lbs vs 998 or if its 11 lbs vs 8, the difference is only 3 lbs.) So chi sau is trying to train to feel the minor differences in force and energy vectors when punches/kicks crash into each other. Feeling that, you can react to it.
Turning off the centerline is only done if they push you over there. You do not turn yourself over there. If you could react fast enough to turn yourself out of the way, you could have just stepped out of the way completly. You punch and attack stepping forward, but if your arms are being collapsed, then you take that in a turn, instead of in the arms. It is done while stepping in in a fight. It actually becomes a footwork step later but most people only see the standing and turning chi sau demo before they quit. I can go into more detail but it will bore most people on here.
Unfortunatly, Chi Sau is stuff you do to train muscle memory. You should not do this stuff in a fight. That is where it gets screwed up. In a fight you use only the muscle memory part. So in Chi Sau you may have to turn yourself to learn it, but if you turn yourself in a fight it becomes something else.

I'm also trying not throw out a theory stating once upon a time bareknuckle boxing=_ing _un either. I can't support that argument just yet. I need to learn more about the history of CMA developed during European Imperialism before I swim in that water.

I'd be very interested to hear what type of information you dig up.
