TECHNIQUES AND TACTICS OF STRIKING HANDS
It is a common misconception in Taijiquan that if one knows "Tui Shou" or Pushing Hand, he would be proficient in combat. This is not so. He must learn "Da Shou" or Striking Hand.
Pushing Hand provides combat skills. Striking Hand provides combat techniques.
The four categories of attack in Striking Hand are striking, kicking, felling and chin-na, or gripping energy points. The tactics of Pushing Hands, of course, can be applied in Striking Hand.
