Not polluting learning. Fajing is Fajing. There are thousands of ways to "deliver" fajing. Chen Tai Chi is a good example of shoulder striking using fajing.

No, what we will do is give you your own thread. I studied with a guy from Kenny Gong lineage. Closed door? Really? ANy school that teaches differently closed door to open student is full of ****.
Closed door has been bastardized by Western society. It isn't about teaching things wrong or backwards, it is about a different level of training.
To me, the hallmark of good taiji is less about applying tremendous force and more about applying the exact right amount of force, so it seems weird to me that so many people seem to focus on how a particular master can push them back so far.
That's how it has been advertised for decades. I'd argue we are closing in on half a century.
