the baby grip thing

Everyone who's ever experienced it knows what I'm talking about. Talk about stick, adhere, follow. What is actually going on there? How come only babies can do it like that?

You mean this? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palmar_grasp_reflex

It's one the 7 vestigial features of the human body. https://whyevolutionistrue.wordpress.co ... f-infants/

It's tits, man. Once you outgrow your need for tits you lose it.

Oh, wait...
I define internal martial art as unusual muscle recruitment and leave it at that. If my definition is incomplete, at least it is correct so far as it goes.

The suck reflex is the reason for the grasp reflex :)

hahaha.

seriously though. from that article, the baby using this grip reflex can support its entire weight. apparently it loses this ability/reflex after 6 months. if you've ever encountered it, it's really something. the baby of course isn't using any kind of "brute force". tai chi hippies should love this (like I do). the article doesn't seem to explain / account for the seemingly incredible strength / natural "jin".
