” stop admiring your own work”


Stop admiring your own work

When training push hands a common error is to be surprised by one’s own success. When a practitioner neutralizes an attack they often pause for a moment in surprise. I take advantage of these pauses and attack. When this would happen to me my teacher would say “stop admiring your own work”. It is important to keep your intent continuous and to not have breaks in your intent that can be capitalized on by your training partner.
