Hehe - do you have a “gong li”-ometer handy for the objective measurement of skill? Otherwise, what’s the criteria?
One time I crossed tan-saos with a supposed Tai-chi master, pak-sao’ed his tan-sao to the side with my other hand and it worked so well I accidentally punched him in the face!
However, I doubt my ‘gong li’ was actually more than his – he just didn’t expect that tactic because in previous encounters with Wing Chun guys, they’d usually just try to lop-sao his tan-sao down.
And in this test of “gong li”, are either of the guys allowed to slide under the other guy’s tan-sao, grab him around the waist, slam him down on his ass, squeeze his legs together to come around his side, climb up on his chest and punch him repeatedly in the face? Would that be an indication of superior “gong li”, or would that be considered “qiang da”?
