My student told me that he revisited a video that he last saw two years ago. Now he can see things he had not noticed before. Whereas once he was impressed, now less so.
This is normal. To an uneducated eye everything looks good. But when you get the hang of things and you take another look your impression will change.
Speaking of which now is a good time for my student to revisit the video below :-
The video does not look impressive. One blogger even said its evidence that the art of GM Wei doesn’t work so well against a resisting opponent.
But there is a problem here. Sure, GM Wei doesn’t look like he could move the other master. However, the body language right at the end is interesting to say the least.
Now that my student has a better idea of what is going on this video will make sense to him, more so, since he probably had been in similar situations whenever we played push hands.
