Parting Wild Horses Mane
Here is a nice application found in the Chinese Internal arts. The author uses it as a Bagua technique, but in Tai Chi Chuan it is also called "parting wild horses mane" or "slanted flying".
Notice how he uses it as a defense against an arm drag, which is commonly used to spin an opponent into a choke hold or similar technique.
I'd like to know if the Judo guys out there use this technique, I do remember using it in Aikido.
