This thread about Kamakura led me to read through the Joseki part of Gateway to all Marvels (Xuanxuan qijing). There's quite a few sequences starting with the one-space pincer and I found them really interesting, especially as examples of close quarter fighting. Each time I play through old Chinese games, I feel like I'm reminded that there's a whole world of possibilities on the goban and that the "calmer" Japanese modern style kind of hides that.

Thank you very much for posting all these, very interesting sequences!!

Indeed, very different from the Japanese style - but also very different from the pro style I would say.
Many of these "old joseki" turn quickly into life-and-death problems, if one is not careful.

Because of the forced star-points beginning, looks like old Chinese masters ended up studying the star point variation in greater detail compared to the Japanese masters.

A major reason josekis look different in old Chinese manuals is the group tax applies and so greater emphasis is put on connecting
