Response to Question
Michael, I’d say your opponent is no more aggressive in his attack than Clark is… YOU are more aggressive in your response, probably resulting from that whole attacking-the-attack mindset you are advocating.
What I also notice is that your opponent releases and withdraws when his elbow is struck, while Clark allows the technique to control and uproot him.
I’d suggest the same for your opponent as I did for Clark, have him keep his elbow bent and pointing down while he is pushing. This will cause your elbow strike to be largely ineffective… so right at that point, rather than releasing and withdrawing, have him stick to your center and release a quick shove (inch jin).
The more the defender remains are ‘braced, engaged, or resistant’, the easier it will be to bounce him back.
