Pushing hands is a two-person form teaching a student how to interact with outside forces, as well as reinforcing the student’s own knowledge of principles further enhancing ting jing (listening power), sensitivity, timing, coordination and positioning.

Pushing hands teaches a student to resist his or her natural instinct to meet incoming force with force, teaching the body to yield and redirect it or neutralize the force.

Pushing hands trains the student in the defensive and offensive principles of the martial art. While doing pushing hands, it is not so much what your partner is doing, but what you are doing to keep the principles of T'ai Chi embodied at all times.



TAI CHI SWORD FORM

At this time sword is no charge to enrolled students. 

However, sword is by invitation from a senior instructor only.

The sword form is an extension of the solo form.  A student must have a good foundation in the solo form and its principles before learning the sword form.


Like the solo form, a practitioner must execute all the movements in an even and soft manner, without stops or breaks.  All movements are commanded by the waist, controlled by the wrist, and all parts of the body must start and stop together.  In this way, all the movements are light, flexible, quick, agile and steady.
