Push Hands - Shearing

Shearing in Push Hands is when you allow your partner to push and you receive and return his force across his weak angle or load his rear foot and roll him off it as a pivot . The touch is similar to a scuffing along the length of the arm while directing the return reflection with the waist . It is done here lightly to destabilize /confuse your partner. It is used here towards the end of this clip causing my partner to utter a Whoa sound in his confusion.
