Sure, but if you removed the title and description of the video, people's reaction would be something along the lines of, "So, there's a guy batting around a ball on a string". Once you label it as "incredible", people then have expectations for what is being shown and that it ought to live-up to being "incredible". Then there's the question of what makes Mr. Bramich a "Lao Sho".

If you saw any athlete doing exactly the same thing, would your immediate reaction be, "Holy $#^&, that guy's an old master: look how incredible his internal power and explosive fa jin is and how his True Softness overcomes true hardness"?

An amazing clip demonstrating the incredible internal power of Tai Chi Fa Jin, on a steel ball weighing a 100 pounds. Lao Sho Damon Bramich demonstrates Hwa and Fa with explosive Fa Jin.

True Softness overcomes true hardness

It's the guy's own channel, so you can be pretty sure that's exactly what he wanted people to think. A solid steel ball that size would weigh a lot more than 100 lbs.

"Man pushes ball on a string" would do. The rest in deep internal martial arts miasma.

The only way to demonstrate fa Jin in this manner is if the ball is mo Ed explosively from a stand still, or redirected
Explosively on the return swing.
The point . is absolute

I didn't realize the 100lb part came from the video description. Yea, that would be much heavier if solid steel.
