dedicated to the discussion of the chinese internal martial arts of xingyiquan, baguazhang, taijiquan, related arts, and anything else best discussed over a bottle of rum
Controversial because everyone seems to have a different opinion as to what peng is. But.... maybe it's not so much as in the past

Our security and LEO students (and myself in that role in the past) find it particularly useful to remain stable in crowd and mob situations and to 'ward off' an idiot attacker by having him just bounce off a good structure.

Why don't you put your mouth where your money is and show us a video of you showing some peng in an uncooperative setting? That seems to be what you and the troll are asking for.
I think Steve has put up some very nice videos despite extensive and repeated major surgeries that left him unable to walk for extended periods.
I have also enjoyed your videos, but haven't seen you doing anything that the "famed masters of olde" did.
At any rate, I find your initiation of discussion with Steve to be far less condescending than the one I responded to.
Finally, I don't believe in lin kong jin.

I really think that getting on someone's hands is the only way of really experiencing any of this and I don't mean that in a negative sense but in training and testing.

maybe you can cast your expert eye over that one for us too.
if not so much, maybe you know of any good ones for the board.
