Push Hands

Push Hands

 

Application of Yang Family Tai Chi through Pushing Hands.

 

Learn the true meanings of each posture.  For example, "How does ‘Grasp Bird's Tail’ work?  Ward Off,  Roll Back, Press and Push. (Peng Lu Chi An).”  This is the base of your Push Hands practice.  Without the right information, you go nowhere.

 

Have you ever learned the application of the Snake movement? Did you know it’s a throw and very practical? Take your Push Hands BEYOND shoving and Sumo Wrestling, which is what it looks like to an onlooker – no real strategy – more like a game of checkers.  Tai Chi Chuan is a scientific approach to boxing that has lots of strategy and more on the level of a sophisticated chess game.

 

 

Tai Chi has many dimensions. We will be covering two that are important to your development:

 

  • Application of Yang Family Tai Chi through Pushing Hands

  • Five elements of Grasp Bird’s Tail.  How to massage the heart, liver, spleen, lungs and kidneys, and how it relates to the five elements – fire (heart), wood (liver), earth (spleen), metal (lungs), water (kidneys).

 

Tai Chi Push Hands is scholar’s level martial art.  It takes an educated mind to understand the true meaning of this unique and mysterious art form. Tai Chi is one of the highest level martial arts that an enthusiast can study and has long-term benefits that rejuvenate your internal system and give you longevity of life.

 

The essence of Tai Chi is not grasped by many because most are not sticking to the principles or don’t know them. 

 

The principles are: 

  1. Relax

  2. Move slowly

  3. Flow like a river but still as a mountain

  4. Circular motion

  5. Sink the weight down

  6. Don't lock joints

  7. Coordinate breath with body movement

  8. Move the body as a unit

 

These 8 principles will lead you to the mastery of this treasured art, but you must first know how they are used.

 

A lot of people are interested in the boxing aspects of Tai Chi, but do not want to be injured while learning.  Our training environment is safe, educational and enlightening.

 

Push Hands should be done at one pace in its early stages to avoid injuries.  The form itself is an example of how the Push Hands should be practiced at an even tempo.    Pushing Hands is used to develop your listening ability (ting) -- to anticipate an attack well before it comes. You can hear things through silence and slow continuous movement by not losing connection with your training partner.  It becomes somewhat like a waltz.  It was created to train a person's body to a high level of sensory perception.  Push Hands, itself, is not boxing – it is a step to it that teaches your body how to feel, listen and direct.
