The Xingyi Staff 形意棍法
The Staff Method
"Splitting must be bold and ferocious
Drilling features hooking and scooping
Thrusting and jabbing is the crushing method
Cannon slashes upward to the left and right
Cross-cut with fierce energy and pressure"

Kung Fu - Bagua Middle Dantian Training - Marcus Brinkman
My teacher Marcus Brinkman - Learn Bagua Zhang at Boulder Internal Martial Arts
"Qu and Chuai are terms which represent the development of the Gao Bagua front and back kicks respectively. In practice however the are developed as a pivoting dynamic which constitute the waving dynamic of the dragon body shape and character. It is therefore also a basis for sweeping and throwing methods which evolve from the "danzhong" or single weighted foot and leg cultivation. This is a brief synopsis of the training progression which arises from the foundational circle walking practice. The leaning body (Kao) movement resulting from this practice tends to focus on the middle basin development of the body and is foundational to "middle dantian' development."

Sifu Adam Mizner shows how Taichi can STOP MMA style Takedowns
In my opinion, this is useless. You are not going to stop someone who really knows what they are doing with a technique like this from taking you down. If he was serious about demonstrating the authenticity of this technique he needs to do it against someone who 1. really knows how to set up and execute a single or double leg takedown and 2. someone who is really using some force. Doesn't have to be FULL force but reasonable use of force would be good. Otherwise it is crap. Mizner has some real taiji skill, but this deno is no good.
