sticky hands, push hands and kokyu-ho

how can you compare sitting kokyu-ho with wingchun's sticky hands and taichichuan's pushhands? what i can say is they are similar in such a way that it improves your sensitivity from an attack when there is a connection between you and your uke. what can you say guys? any interesting comments?

Personally, I don't see much correlation. Mainly because Kokyu-ho is used to develop kokyu-power and push-hands is more of a "how to use kokyu-power in a 2-person engagement after you have already developed it" and the Chi Sao (sticky hands), while it should use some of that power, it is different and comes out of a "closed body" position, so it's a somewhat different thing from Aikido and Taiji push-hands.

My opinion, FWIW

Mike

Re: sticky hands, push hands and kokyu-ho

Having done more Chi Sau and FMA flow-drills than my limited push-hands, IMHO if we are talking about developing the concept of Aiki (flow, though not called that in WC or FMA) and sensitivity, I think we can make some correlation. OTOH, because the actual physical parameters of the exercises are different from those of Aikido, some may find it hard to connect the dots just on the technical level.
