During push hands training we train the automation of our responses by learning about patterns of movements.
In form training we learn movement patterns. Through push hands training we learn how to reconcile what we learned in the form and the application of those movement patterns in push hands.
In the earlier part of this clip I highlighted a movement pattern to my student. This is a frequently used pattern in our push hands. Because he has not assimilated the lessons of the form in his mind he is not able to recognize the patterns amidst the chaos of free movement.
In the last part of the clip I showed an extension of the same movement pattern. This came about because his response triggered my counter to his movement.
