    If both of your feet are on the ground, you are not using your leg to control your opponent's legs. Even you have "block" your opponent's leg. his leg can easily step over your blocking leg. When your opponent's legs has freedom and if you push him, his body will move backward instead of downward. This is why "push" is not "throw" because you have not controlled your opponent's legs yet.

    unless you step on his foot but if you miss it will be a push and you can continue following him with striking. There is always pros and cons for moving towards grappling or striking but I believe this push is mostly for striking.

    In the

    - striking model, you want "head on collision".
    - grappling model, you want "rear end collision".

    A "push" which is "rear end collision doesn't work well in the striking model. To push your opponent away and then try to strike him make no sense to me. To pull your opponent into your punch is what you should do.
