    Agreed. I was taught 8 gates, but also the other three you mentioned.

    One important strategy in all striking art is to push your opponent's leading arm to jam his own back arm. I have not heard many boxing coaches talk about this. I also have not heard many CMA (and WC) instructors talk about this.

    Hmm.
    Yep and in my experience is taught rather early in snt. Is also an important aspect for facing (aligning 6 gates to 3)

    I focus on breathing, I focus on filling the tan tien with chi and then using the Yi to spread the chi to my limps, i focus on issuing chi with mental intent after each movement of the hand. At first i imagine one person standing infront of me, or i would do it infront of the wooden man. I would imagine using portions on a person or the wooden dummy. An i would also imagine how the different angles and levels can be altered for different scenarios and different size people as well as different movements. I would later imagine three people one infront of me and one to the sides of me. Then I would do the form in three directions with people standing on either side...first i would do it standing straight up in yee gee kim yeung ma, then i would turn side ways and do it on each side. that makes three times.
