|Tui shou, also known as “push hands,” is a fundamental training exercise in the practice of Taijiquan (Tai Chi). It is a two-person exercise that involves pushing and yielding to an opponent’s energy, while maintaining balance and control.|
Tui shou is an excellent way to develop sensitivity, coordination, and balance, as well as an understanding of the principles of Taijiquan. The practice involves physical touch, which allows for a deeper connection and understanding of the opponent’s movements and energy.
In addition to its physical benefits, tui shou can also have a positive impact on mental health. The practice requires a high level of focus and concentration, which can help to reduce stress and anxiety.
Tui shou is suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels, as it can be practiced at varying levels of intensity. Beginners can start with basic exercises and gradually work their way up to more advanced techniques.
In conclusion, tui shou is a valuable practice for anyone interested in Taijiquan or martial arts. It offers physical and mental benefits, and can be practiced by people of all ages and fitness levels. So why not give tui shou a try at our weekly meetup and experience the many benefits it has to offer?
We meet Saturday at 11AM at Patrick Woodward Memorial Park.
