By using "引(Yin) - arm guiding",


assuming you are facing north, depending on your opponent's respond, you can finish with:

- 踢(Ti) - foot sweep (west direction force),
- 撮(Cuo) - scooping kick (east direction force),
- 切(Qie) - front cut (north direction force),
- 抹(Mo) - neck wiping (south direction force),
- ...

It's a good example that you use one "entering strategy" and end up with different "finish strategies".

If we look at this from the opposite direction, in order to obtain "single leg", you can set it up with:

- arm drag,
- circle running,
- knee striking,
- shoulder striking,
- leg hooking,
- ...

So

- 1 entering strategy can map into many finish strategies.
- Many entering strategies can map into 1 finish strategy.

I find this is the best way to train MA. It's like the artificial intelligence, you have

- forward search,
- backward search, and
- bi-directional search.

Will this approach work on all MA styles? What's your opinion on this?

You are relying on the guy reaching? Which you just should never do.

I do grab people like that but it is a lot less pronounced.

It's the opportunity that you try to create.

When you

- kick low, if your opponent drops his arm to block your kick, his face will be open for your punch.
- pull, if your opponent resists, his resistance can help your push.

IMO, this strategy should work for both the grappling art and also the striking art.
