    I've never seen the term bai si before, but I have seen the term toudi as an old-school name for Okinawan karate.

    Means China hand or something like that.

    Tu dai, to dai in chinese is reffering to a beginner student or "baby" or youngest brother.

    Bai Si means literally to "Beg for a master". You can say "I'm plan on going to Shandong to Bai Si", which would mean "I'm going to Shandong to find a master who will accept me".

    Tu Di means diciple whilst Xue Sen is student, so you can be a diciple and a student but not the other way around. A Tu Di is one that has been formally accepted by a master to be a Tren Zhen, someone who can carry on the lineage of a style.

    Just adding that the corect spelling and pronunciation should be "Baishi" with the "sh" having the same sound as the "sh" in "Sharon".
