Hi Louis,

Thanks for your explanations! I’d never heard it that way either, but then, the whole practice of fa jing is new to me. I’ll go home and re-read my classics and see if I find anything.

Thanks again,

My Bagua teacher taught me a while back a form of Bagua push hands (there are many) in which you slightly step into eachother and with your forearm, bounce eachother off. Its a bit "harder" than Taiji's various push hands but it feels that (even though my opponent may be bigger) when I step in and make contact with my opponents forearm, I can absorb his push a bit and then bounce him away or bounce myself back. Instead of stepping back, I let myself bounce back, so we are effectively bouncing eachother. But if I wanted to bounce him forward, even though he's coming at me, I could issue energy and do so the moment my arm gives a little.

It might be similar, although Bagua's stays a bit firmer than Taiji's.
