Taijiquan IV: Push-Hands and Sword (0.5-4)
Print this Page
Level IV introduces push-hands, or tui shou, the two-person t'ai-chi chuan practice.
The basic push-hands pattern is taught and the solo form is corrected, with special
attention to how push-hands and the solo practice inform each other. Partner work
provides the basis for learning how to interact with others using t'ai-chi principles.
By practicing these skills in a push-hands setting, the student learns how to bring
them to everyday interactions. This upper-level martial arts course is available for
variable credit (1-3). Please contact the Department for further details. Cross-listed
