Even though the arrangement of form movements themselves are different. I have found other connections as well. Anyway. Have a great holiday.

You can find that same slap all throughout CMA. I do a similar sequence, from back palm to forward palm in Xuan Wu Quan.[1:10] -

I've seen this slap firsthand in 3 different styles, minimum.
Further illustrating the point I was trying to make.
