The question to me is if Bong is suitable for bridging or especially for use as a lead or block, IMO/IME it is not.. It is an assisting 'hand'...
None of the tools, actions stay, or freeze but with Bong it can be more of a liability.
Bong should not be used from outside to bridge esp as a lead bridge, and I've seen it used that way here...and when used that way I have seen it "stay" way longer than any punch would.. That kind of use will leave you wide open for way too long.
Bong is best used from when already in contact and to deal with a certain kind of energy and position and when applied this way it should take something away from the opponent, break him down and gain superior position from in contact in order to adapt and maintain control...
