THE FRONTAL PUSH IN MOBILE PUSHING HANDS
Many Taijiquan practitioners do not realize that "Pushing Hands" is meant to develop important combat skills, and not a routine exercise for demonstration. One very important skill is to cover yourself, including your groin, when pushing or attacking your opponent. "Mobile Pushing Hands" where attacks are of long range is exceedingly useful to develop good footwork. In this video series, the frontal push and its defence are shown.
