Follow-up: Sensing Hands vs Push Hands
When I asked teacher what the literal translation of t'ui shou was, it was, in fact, "push hands", even though the word used for "push" in our form is an not t'ui. Apparently they're synonymous. Then without any prompting he said that some people preferred "sensing hands". When I asked him what he thought about that it was largely a non-issue for him, but he said it might be all right as an alternative translation and understood the emphasis on sensing.
