...when I said off balance I'm trying to say that I'm falling backwards and if the push against me was slightly harder/faster, I would really land on my bum.
Absolutely spot on!You should never be staggering back on your heels. That's what we in WC/VT/WT want to do to the other guy. Don't pull back and withdraw your energy. A good WC guy will run right over you. Instead, keep your energy pressing forward. When your opponent "blasts" in with overwhelming force, you need to be able to maintain forward pressure and learn to use his force to turn or sidestep off-line without giving up your own forward pressure. If you learn to do this, you can deflect your opponent's "blast" and get a great angle to counterattack.
I'm going on the premise of "lost" balance or footwork.
I guess the question is about recovering your foot work, which is hard when he's pressing in so hard. I find the counter punching a viable option, but is that possible without having regained your footing.
.... So my long term plan is too study Ju Jutzu basics the next 5 years and then start WT.
I've never studied Wing Chun, ... I believe someone studying WT is most often both on the giving and the receiving side of this situation in his training. Therefore, I'll get the best answers here
Agree with you 100% there. The best solutions for the WC chain punches is not in the WC system.Use circular to defeat linear ;-)
I believe WT is the right system for me in the long run, it would be benifitial to understand a WT type response.
