The short and somewhat useless answer is "everything". The longer answer is that in the seminar no waza has been taught so when I say everything is different, I mean that I don't see how the waza demonstrated
in the video arises or is related to the drills from the seminar. I have asked similar questions on this thread:

so have a look.
You honestly don't see how what is shown in the video of the first link you posted above matches up with anything Dan did in his seminar? O'sensei having a guy push on him, not moving, not turning away, absorbing their strength into his body until he decides to throw them away. Later in the vid he's letting guys push into his hip, absorbing it and bouncing them away. You consider that waza?
