Think standing grappling. Use it to create space or thrust the person off of you or into someone else. Trap a leg or sweep, and po pai simultaneously to knock them down or away from you.Not calling it impractical in general but compared to other techniques that have higher incidence rates and the likelihood of being setup just right to leverage it, I put it comparatively lower on the practicality scale.
Also given the sheer speed and violence of real combat, I struggle with what I see as a gap in protecting the face. That said, context matters, and if there’s ever a chance to meet up in person and discuss, this seems like a testable point of disagreement.
