Tai Chi Chuan Martial Applications: Advanced Yang Style by Jwing-Ming Yang

This book is organized into three sections: Martial applications of the Yang-style form, Push-hands training, and demonstration and explanation of the two-person Taiji fighting set.

The Yang-style application portion breaks down each Taiji technique from the form into the end game of downing the opponent (tripping, throwing, or knocking off balance), using Qin Na (grips or locks on bone or muscle), or attacking with a cavity strike (punches, kicks, or strikes to sensitive areas). This section is the one I think would be most helpful for beginners. It enables you to picture the fighting application of each part of the form as you learn it. This makes it easier to understand the reasoning behind your practice.

Taiji pushing hands training features a brief introduction to wooden ball training to develop your touch or “listening” to an opponent, an essential skill as you train in the two-person sticking, coiling, neutralizing, and leading drills. This section ends with a look at silk-reeling, Bagua circle walking, and martial applications of pushing hands similar to those in the previous portion of the book.

The Taiji Fighting Set is a traditional two-person give and take choreographed form that teaches you how to modify your attacks and defense in reaction to those of your opponent. When you plan on a certain move, how do you change it up when your opponent doesn’t “co-operate?” There is enough material in this section alone that will provide years of learning.

The final chapter of the book on Taijiquan fighting strategy might be my favorite. There is some “real world” practical advice here and those of you familiar with Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do theory may find some common ground.

Tai Chi Chuan Martial Applications is a practical training guide for both beginners and advanced students.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Push Hands: Why? By Erle Montaigue. Tai chi push hands used to be one of the greatest training aids ever invented. However, over the years, those who could not or did not know how to fight, decided that they would substitute actual fighting methods and real self-defence with push hands. They trained and trained until they became very good at pushing people and lowering their own centre of gravity so that others could not push them over in just the same way that a sumo wrestler does, only on a much lesser scale! In fact I could train a sumo in tai chi push hands and he would be unbeatable!

The game of push hands is to off balance your partner using no more than 4 ounces of pressure. Along the way a diverse series practice exercises are used to develop the fundamental skills required to play the game of Tui Shou well. Push Hands is a safe, fun, game and partner exercise to deepen your understanding and skill in Tai Chi Chuan. These four moves are performed more than any others in the longer and older Tai Chi Forms. Balance — Tui Shou practice incredibly improves your balance immediately.

Push Hands or Tui Shou Benefits:

More and more of the so called 'hard styles' are now discovering the benefits of the tai chi training tool push hands. Some karate schools are adopting the Taiji way of pushing into their own systems such as Shotokan while others have their own style of push hands such as 'kakie' from the Higoana style of Goju. Tai Chi Push hands is a part of the training schedule from the so called internal martial art of Taijiquan T'ai chi ch'uan. I say 'so called' when referring to internal or external because I do not believe that these expressions are exactly true. The 'so called' hard styles of karate also have so called, soft elements while the so called soft style also have hard elements. After all, it's not easy to punch someone in the mouth, softly! I prefer to use centrifugal force, using the power derived from the whole body rather than just one or two muscle groups as being representative of the 'soft styles'.

Concerning the participation at this event I want first of all to cordially thank Mrs. In her work, Mrs. Huang strives to make the Chinese movement arts understandable to the people here and to get across the essence of this precious culture. It is by her recommendation that I got the opportunity to come together with all friends who are interested in the Tai Chi culture and are active in this field for many years. It was an interesting and unforgettable experience for me. Since then, Tai Chi Chuan enjoys a high reputation as an internal martial art.
