This explanation reminds me of the tuishou "Turnstile Practice" on Association Student Guide, pg 185
Yes, I looked at the turnstile practice and it is similar in some aspects. The only difference is that this thread is an extension of the "Da Shou: strike before push" thread. When I talk about countering, i am talking about outside range striking where "sticking" to opponent is unavailable and difficult. Tui shou is sticking and gets into the usage of the 13 energies and mid-range grappling. Da shou is how to deal with punches, kicks, elbows, knees, etc. in the outer ranges.
@Louis: thanks for the character analysis and commentary.
