Don't let your style to restrict what you can/should do.

When you kick and someone says, "This is not boxing." Are you going to allow his words to bother you?

An external guy will never say, "This is not external". When an "internal" guy says, "This is not internal", he just puts a restriction on himself for no good reason.

To make IMA great again, we have to remove that "style boundary" (such as this is not push hand).
I'm still allergic to "push".

John, in the video when the gent said "this is not push hand"
what he means is that you do not know what the force is
dunno direction, dunno magnitude, dunno limitation, no feeling
you just do what you like...this is not push hand
means 不懂劲

its not style boundary; its level of understanding

It’s about balance of internal pressure.
