Another question which has some similarities with previous question.

In brawl that takes place between two individuals, one pushes the other by shoulder or hand or head. What do you call such a push?

    The push by hand is often called a shove.
    If you charge at somebody and hit him with your head, that's usually called a butt.
    I can't think of any particular word for a violent action performed with the shoulder. "Nudge" is way too gentle, and "jostle" sounds accidental.
