Taijiquan on the Blue Mountain Part 13 — Life (Almost)
8th to 12th March 2009

ROLLING AND STEPPING FORWARD AND BACKWARD

Wahnam Taijiquan

Sifu Piti gives Sifu Simon a good push

There are two methods in the frontal push, namely rolling forward and stepping forward. Covering yourselves and good footwork are important. You can also defend against the frontal push by rolling backward or stepping back. You also need to sink your body to get the best advantage. A good push consists of a good beginning where you cover yourselves adequately, a good progression where your movements are fluid, and a good conclusion where you complete in a stable stance.
