Silk Reeling Martial Applications
In Chen Tai Chi, each movement has many ways it can be applied in a martial arts context.
One movement can be used as a block or deflection; a strike or a locking technique; or a takedown or throw. Each application is based on the body method developed from foundation training, form, and push hands exercises.
This unit looks at different ways to apply Chen Tai Chi wave hands exercises. The unit explores ideas of how to use wave hands in a clinching situation, exploring different grabbing and locking techniques, kicking defences, defences against strikes, and much more.
