In a nutshell, whatever the opponent does to you, you don't just blend, you accept, but at the same time you never give up your vital "balance". I've found it helpful to simply "fight" to "stand", even as I recieve blows, throws, or what have you.
I just realized that I never replied to your pm. I'm sorry.
Sounds like you do some practice similar to the drills we've been talking about here? Would you like to describe some of what you've done?
I can work in a connected way... but I haven't done a lot of training to increase the power I can generate that way, if you see what I mean. So I'm stronger than I would be if I wasn't connected, but not any stronger than that.
"just irimi" ...
If anyone was irimi'ing, it was my partner, he was irimiing me off the mat and all over the place. He was wishing for gloves, too. I'm looking forward to seeing the intermediate versions of your drill.
I don't think I've seen the video of a wing chun practitioner?
