The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Yiquan Push Hands Video

Nice! Makes me want to push hands again. The that gets tossed around looks like he's always off balance trying to push on the other guy, who is calmly reading and feeling for the right time to push. Not much of an expert myself though, just my impression.

Against someone who is clearly better in push hands, you ARE always off balance unless they choose to let you have your balance back (until they take it away again).

In aikido, I got to take ukemi for Kushida Sensei a couple of times. One of the things that stands out in my memory was the constant sensation that I was off balance and falling.
