I agree. We do a lot of chinna right out of the yang form, and a lot of takedowns. Actually, once you analize the solo form and the fighting set, you relize that there are aplication for the 4 levels of combat on every move(punch, strike, chinna, takedown). Without this knowledge, just pushin hands and "playing" wont do!
Great posts from averyone thanks!
