E348 T'ui Shou (Push Hands)
Spring 2004
Charles Pearce, Instructor
 

Course Description
T'ui Shou was originally designed as a training level between solo forms and high impact two-person interaction. It offers very special attentional training which requires enough mental and physical flexibility to observe and participate in the movement and intent of another person. An integral part of T'ai Chi Ch'uan, it models fundemental Taoist and Chan Buddhist philosophical concepts in the form of a physical activity. This T'ui Shou Course focuses on Master Chen's basic neutralizing and throwing techniques as well as Da Liu, 4 forms and other basic push hands exercises. Additional techniques and concepts from Dr. Tao Ping-Siang, Peter Ralston and Don Burns are included.
