2018 Saturday Morning Push Hands Classes 9.30 – 12.30

27 Jan 24 Feb 24 March 28 April 2 June 23 June 21 July


Modern Taiji practice has shifted away from its Martial roots, primarily towards body, health and healing arts. However, it still requires detailed and precise mental concentration and physical technique to have function. Pushing Hands is the traditional method for learning, applying and developing the skills and mobility of Taijiquan and managing Taiji forces as a technique for eventual self-defense.

This does not mean, however, that Push Hands can or should only be practised in a combative manner. The “ Victory in Combat” mindset can lead students astray from the Taiji principles of Yin & Yang, promoting the belief that success through superior strength equals Taiji skill. It does not.

Suitable and safe for all, but particularly Tai Chi students who do not currently practice Push Hands and would like to learn about it.
