  1. Very nice! I can see the rollback from TCC or at least the intimation of it, as well as a grappling application where the uppercut becomes a grab to the chin or throat and the twist and sink takes the opponent down, possibly with a leg sweep.

      Yep, absolutely.

      Though the idea of rollback is often hidden by Xing Yi’s aggressive ‘crashing through the opponent’ strategy, Xing Yi does operate like a steel ball and is always subtly rolling the opponents force away from it’s center.
