Pushing Hands

Pushing Hands is an application of Internal Martial Arts that uses the traditional Tai Chi principle of “softness overcoming hardness” to bridge forms and self-defense.

Pushing Hands moves beyond choreography and develops sensitivity and intuition. It teaches the evolution of techniques from defense to counterattack and back. It is a synthesis of multiple skills, both physical and mental.
