The idea to control the opponent without direct impact is so fantastic that it causes two contrary views:
1) this is trickery that doesn't have any link to the reality
Indeed, there are quite a few charlatans from martial arts who demonstrate "non-contact work" and talk of special concentration, psyche energy, immemorial knowledge, and occult practices. All this stuff and nonsense cause fair scepsis among serious martial artists and now any discussions over non-contact work may lead to smile, distrust and suspicion.
However, real non-contact does work and it's absolutely refined from "magic and energies". On the contrary the basics are in natural human reactions. Can you recall how a snow ball in your friend's hand could make you bend or evade even before the throw?
Understanding of human perception, its impact on human movements, sensitivity and control, these are the keys to non-contact mastery.
