Sabah 2016 -- Day 3 Morning

Pushing Hands is an ingenuous method in Taijiquan to train combat skills. However, many Taijiquan practitioners miss this important point and perform Pushing Hands in a routine, missing the purpose of practicing this ingenuous method.

There are two types of Pushing Hands, stationary and mobile. In this morning session of Day 3, students learned the skills of stationary Pushing Hands.
