Taras,

The comparison is best found in the relationship between ward off and roll back power transfers and in the first 2movements of the Chen style short form. Also the Silk Reeling exercises detail rotations of knee and shoulder which, if performed with roll back and ward off, are very similar to torifune. Actually IMHO all Tai Chi projections make use of the same principle as Torifune, and the energies are cross transferable.
