Tai Chi partner practice is a way to explore and develop deeper understanding, body-mind qualities and skills in all aspects of practice. My syllabus starts by training foundation principles & body-mind attributes, such as relaxation, fluidity, mobility, balance, stability and (internal) strength.
We then work on Tai Chi partnerwork, known as ‘Tui Shou’ or ‘pushing hands’. This is the study of internal martial arts principles, through co-operative practical exercises. Beyond this, we may explore other related partnerwork from a range of sources.
Partnerwork can be fascinating and enjoyable, and approached with a spirit of mutual learning.
