push hands training method
Tui Shou in taichi, chi sao in wing chun, kakie in goju ryu. I'd like to hear the fundamental similarities and differences between these from people who have actually practiced these training methods. For example, what is the purpose of each training method within its respective style? What is the proper way to practice each? Is push hands(and/or sticky hands) more similar to 2 man kata or point sparring? In other words, within the context each style, is it choreographed movement to build muscle memory, or a sort of contest with restrictive rules meant to build certain skills... or something different. I think this is the right subforum. I know that goju ryu is okinawan, but I've read somewhere that kakie has chinese origins, is that true? Thanks in advance for any feedback and/or meaningless trolling(at least you bothered to click on the thread).
