Master Chen Youze Push Hands Workshop

At the Arnold in Columbus March 2015 Master Chen Youze explains some push hands fundamentals.

Using the eight energies Peng, Lui, Ji, An, Cai, Lie, Zhou and Kao or Ward off, Rollback, Press, Push (settle the wrists), Pluck, Seperate, Elbow, Shoulder (body). Also usage of Ting Jin or listening energy, feeling the direction of the incoming force and then neutralizing in the appropriate direction. All major skills not only in Push hands but actual combat. To be able to lead the opponent to emptiness without struggling is a great and valuable skill. In order
