    Couple thoughts come to mind.
    1) You all fail for low content thread.
    2) Those videos are very cool.
    3) I now wish to try Taichi Chuan
    4) My foot itches. Damned mosquitos.

    Why do they persist to call this Tai Ji Push hands instead of just calling it Shuai Jiao? With the exception of the starting position to me it looks like Shuai Jiao with out the jacket. I am by no means an authority on Tai ji push hands so is there something I am not seeing here?

    There's a lot of SJ in taijiit's no surprise that properly played freestyle moving-step tui shou would look much like SJ. But the lack of jackets eliminate almost all fighting for a gripit's actually counterproductive, while in SJ it is importantand in the Hong Kong video at least you can see some pushes that bleed into palm strikes. (You'll also see contact on the back of the neck; generally forbidden in Western PH for nonsense reasons.) In normal free play in a class you'll see a lot of shoulder checks, some elbow bumping, chin-na, and other such.

    Now now, everyone knows that when grapplers talk about using technique while avoiding raw strength or spazzing out, and when they are careful to avoid this or that leglock or move because it's too dangerousthat's just them practicing their art in a safe way.

    When CMA people talk about using technique while avoiding raw strength, and don't train every possible move in the art, it's because they're a bunch of pajama-wearing homos.

    DUH!
