FWIW, this video was made by a particular student acquaintance very early in the learning process when there were still many misunderstandings in the terminology and how this manifests in the mind and body. It doesn't discuss what any of the terminology really means or how the mind is utilized to actually make it internal power training (or more). Much of the displayed movement goes against the intentions of what the training is trying to build. I would say using this video as a reference is contraindicated for those reasons. Caveat emptor.

The demonstrator in the video is trying to communicate his understanding of concepts and exercises taught by Dan Harden
(http://www.bodyworkseminars.org).

"snafu" is a gentleman who has trained closely with Dan Harden for a number of years.
Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterward.

Reading snafu's post, I am assuming not. This guy in the OP is struggling, and I am assuming snafu is much more comfortable with the material, given Tom's statement.

I'd like to see how the fellow in the video has progressed since the time of recording.

Excerpt from https://www.feelingthehealing.co.uk/ethos

ABOUT AMIR
For the past 15 years, Amir has been on a journey that combines daily exercise and Body-Psychotherapy. Amir’s journey has shown him that there is an organic connection between that which makes the body healthier and that which balances the mind.

After undergoing a therapeutic process himself, Amir spent three years training as a Body-Psychotherapist. Amir has qualifications in Body-Psychotherapy, Somatic Therapy, Deep Tissue Massage, Reiki and Reconnective Healing. As well as having trained as a Kick Boxer, Amir is also a qualified Tai Chi Chuan teacher and he has been practicing and refining his skills for the past eleven years.

Interesting. People working with body-psychotherapy usual have a very deep interest in body knowledge. Yet, having a lot of intellectual knowledge about the body is quite another thing than having developed a good sense of internal body awareness. ...But he seem to be very serious about what he does and eleven years is not a very long time of Tai Chi practice for a "qualified" teacher. I bet that he could eventually become a great teacher in the deeper aspects of the arts. 8-)

No, snafu is not Amir Greenstein.

looks more like a stretching exercise... he's turning too much for taiji. "Strange" structure. too much upper body for my taste.
