Second Day of Pushing Hands Seminar

Yesterday we reviewed double pushing hands and single pushing hands moving.  Nothing much to say new about techniques 1-6 and yin coil in double.  In single pushing hand and coiling practice it is important to remember that the neutralization of the opponent’s push should take place within the span of your shoulders, otherwise you will open yourself up in going beyond your shoulders.  The push should come from the root in moving pushing hands, not from the upper body.  Neutralize the opponent’s push before you step back otherwise the opponent can prevent you from regaining your root once you step.  Stepping can be one  at a time or two or more steps in succession.
