It occurred to me the other day that pushes (where you push someone) are conspicuously absent from most martial arts (I can't think of any which utilize or specialize in it) and I am curious if anyone can think of any which do utilize a pushing technique. I ask because I was speaking with a fellow bagua practioner I know in the area, and he found it curious that the style I use utilizes pushes. And I don't mean in the kind where one pushes one over, but ones which generate the force to effectively force the person to stumble backward quite a few feet, or slam into the ground. Defined techniques in the sense that there are defined throwing techniques in judo and jiujitsu, and defined joint-lock techniques in Hapkido. I am curious also why pushing hasn't been more utilized in martial arts. I'm not calling for a revolution in martial arts or anything to include it, lol, but I just find it odd that people have focused far more one grabbing and bringing a person in and down, rather than the opposite and out. Please, your thoughts. I may be grossly mistaken and many martial arts exist which utilize it. But I also think all martial arts utilize some kind of push, but how TKD is largely specializing in kicking techniques, I am unaware of any arts which are the same, but for pushing. If anyone has any insight, I would be grateful. Thank you for your time.
