WC sticky hand + Taiji push hand
will make the training more complete. But there are still something missing such as...
Here is my question, if you have trained both WC and Taiji, when you trainThe Asian that trained me from 1968 to 1976 refused to speak any Chinese. In the same years I practiced Tai Chi with a guy that learned it in Hawaii. He never told me much, except that it was from the Dung family...maybe Tsung.
After that I worked with a few people here and there and never picked up the Chinese. Even now, decades later....I've read and see the names, but don't remember. My bad.
Please share more of your integration experience.Completely integrated...
Completely integrated...as far as a sticky hands routine, or in combat.
I haven't run across anybody else, but I stick pretty private now days.
I don't call it anything..."sticky hands".
I decided to start posting some here to see if anybody else has gone in a similar direction.
Both are versions. There are a couple more variations.
So the concept is to use your footwork to keep changing your angle of attack and defense and to keep your head changing position.
Shifting steps are useful when you are on the inside, by that I mean you are inside your opponents arms. Shifting is also a way to generate power
This is the Taiji PH that I'm talking about. It's predefined pattern.
I did stated a new thread. But no WC guys share their opinion there so far. Does this kind of integration discussion not interest to any WC guys?
You are getting past my ability to write an explanation. Entering much easier to show you than describe territory. The shift happens when you foot lands so front foot lands/shifts back foot shifts or also lands/ shifts.How many variations/versions of shifting steps are there?
Would you say anytime you torque to step is considered "shifting step"?
In both these versions the head still appears to remain on the center line instead of changing your angle of attack and defense, so not too sure what you mean here?
Would you say "shifting steps" applications are best used when occupying the 3 gates inside the opponent’s arms?
