Advanced classes are a
combination of form review, push hands, and Tai Chi sword.
For people who have learned the basics in a beginning class, these
classes are concerned with the ongoing process of correction and refinement
of the 37-postures and gaining a deeper understanding of the principles
of Tai chi and their application.
T'ui Sho (push hands)
T'ui Sho is an interpersonal practice that is an integral part of
Tai chi training. This interaction between two people serves to broaden
their understanding of the principles and skill in applying Tai chi
to relationships and conflict, creating greater harmony and fellowship.
T'ui Sho, done in a principled way, develops flexibility, adaptability,
sensitivity, and mindfulness in an atmosphere of mutual respect.
Tai Chi Chien (sword)
Composed of a 52-posture
form and free-style fencing, this unique practice further refines
and deepens the student's understanding and expression of the essence
of Tai Chi.
