Push Hands

"Without the spiritual aspects of tai chi, you'll never get the martial," says Walls-Kaufman.

Push hands is the near-complete practice used in tai chi to explore the martial and spiritual. It incorporates all of the internal, philosophical and tactical themes of the art. Two people face one another and, staying lightly connected at the hands, wrists and elbows, pursue one another’s center of gravity with the object of gently destabilizing their opponent’s balance.

We emphasize gentle and courteous push hands in our group practice because I believe that genuine tai chi understanding is absolutely impossible without the feeling, and the proof, of chi that this unique insight provides us. It is as spiritual as any other part of the art.

The Tai Chi classes are open and friendly.
