This started in the introductions...I thought I'd bring it here.

Ken...Chi Sao with boxing gloves is going to inhibit the sensitivity training you develop to read and trap, push, etc... If you want to make contact, wear chest protectors instead of completely covering the hands.

Good chi sao will incorporate traps and locks.

Get a helmet for the face too, eh? I dunno.. I feel most of the "energy" of my opponent through my fore-arms and not my hands so much. I think I'll give boxing gloves a try and see how it works out. I'll let ya know how it goes.

I guess boxing gloves may work for the basic chi sao...

You feel "energy" Ken in the forearms? Hope your not refering to "chi"...

I'm talking about feeling the the way a person is moving based on touch sensitivity. It really has nothing to do with "Chi". I only say energy because it's a little easier to illustrate.
