Nobody is riding the brakes. Again, the post was asking people who TRAINED in Chin Na to share those experiences. We don’t really need to explore fight scenarios, there are plenty of those threads. I want to know about your TRAINING.I'm willing to bet that it's more effective when you use the correct amount of force applied correctly vs the least amount of force.
It probably seems light the least amount of force because you aren't trying to brute force a technique. It's the same way punches work. A relaxed punch only seems like the least amount of force is being used in reality more force is delivered with a relaxed punch than a brute force one. You aren't trying to punch with the least amount of force unless you are light sparring.
Chin na is the same way. You aren't trying to use the least amount of force unless you are sparring and learning because the correct amount of force that you would use in full contact would destroy the joints.
If I'm in a fight I don't want to ride with the brakes on by trying to use the least. In training yes. In a fight no.
