    They all stole it from folk wrestling. You see the same thing in Mongolian wrestling and shuai jiao. Here's a graphic of sukui-nage with a leg lift:



    Here's Zhou Jingxuan's explanation of Bajiquan Kua, including the same leg lift for 'shuai' if the initial throw fails:

    I'll be happy to help you with it. In the meantime, try to use Zhou's advice (0:42 of above video) on getting the head and shoulder in tight. It's a mistake to try to throw the guy with your arm. Think of it like you're throwing him by using your hips to spin your torso, driving your shoulder up and into him. The slight lift will help push him over your leg.

    Perfect vid for this discussion. I'm glad you came by and explained it better. The way he executes it in the vid is exactly how we train it, I just couldn't figure out how to put it into words that would make sense.

    Ain't nothin' just a matter of swinging an arm hard enough in tai chi. Like Jack says above, you have to seal (get in close, lots of contact) and the power comes as it so often does from hips and core strength. Your arm is mostly just a conduit for that power.

    The concept of "Kao" 靠 is heavily emphasized in Baji. Kao is the crash/collide entry motion you see him executing as he pushes with his arm at 0:23. Baji is essentially a close range system so a lot of emphasis is placed on closing the gap with various set ups for entry. After which you can utilize various body parts to strike, grab, and throw your opponent.

    The first real Baji player I met was a Taiwanese guy getting his PhD in the department where I was studying at university. It turned out he had spent his time in the army as a combatives instructor and kuo shu fight team captain. He said he mainly practiced his family's flavor of Chen taiji, but that they all learnt Baji first because its bridging and entering techniques were super helpful to taiji players. YMMV, of course, but it seemed sensible and he was definitely a capable fighter.

    Just to clarify, I was able to do it on a compliant partner, but I could tell I was muscling it too much, and still couldn't get the power shown in the original video. I see what you mean, jack, about the body and head position.

    Yeah, I think that's exactly the difference between the right way and what I was doing. Would you say that the arm is what takes the place of the leg lift in the inital throw? ie. tilting him back, or is it more of the "Kao" that tilts your opponent back?

    And should you aim the head at the shoulder, or is he just short?

    The arm's the same in both. Just do what the red Judo guy does in the graphic I posted before but crowd the guy more and skip the leg lift. If he doesn't go down, grab his lead leg with your other hand to force the issue. The pushing surfaces are your hip (fulcrum) and shoulder (pressor), which is what makes this throw effortless when you get it right.

    Because you're a giant, you'll probably end up using your shoulder rather than your head.
