BRUSH KNEE 2 PERSON SET
It is named “Brush Knee” because that is the intent necessary to take your opponent out of center. If you just push “downish” to a vague destination, then you will have a fight on your hands. If, however, you deflect & drill up (rise up,drill) with the parrying hand, then you can follow your opponent’s resistance down (fall/overturn) to “brush knee” . This works because of the concept : “coil in to coil out” , and using the knee as a gravitational center. This action will swirl (via a sweeping Ahn Jin ) your opponent in his feet causing a headon collision with your palm if you are in center and he is using a power shot ( VS a testing /feinting blow) . The 2 Person set trains the skill of using this parry . This is a very useful skill as it allows the Practitioner to cause the his opponent to lose his footing . Brush Knee uses An Jin applied through the contact point to disorient the opponent’s limbs while pulling him into the palm . This method is a drawing technique used to bait the opponent into the open door creating a predictable line of attack and removing some of the variables . This set can be combined with other 2 person exercises like Ping Lu Ji An and The Fair Ladies Weaving at the Shuttles Set .
