Tai Chi Fighting Set (Streaming)
Code: S0509Duration: 123 min
Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming comprehensively instructs and demonstrates the 88 Posture, 2-Person Fighting Matching Set for advanced Tai Chi Chuan. A fighting set is a sequence of movements which teaches the student how to apply the martial art in a real-life fighting situation. Every day, Tai Chi Chuan is practiced by millions of men and women worldwide as a moving meditation, known for its health benefits. However, its origins can be traced back hundreds of years to Chinese internal martial arts.
Internal arts require the practitioner to develop their internal energy, Qi, in order to lead abundant energy through each movement.
This Fighting Set is a combination of sparring techniques from Tai Chi pushing hands and the solo Taijiquan sequence, and it serves as a bridge connecting pushing hands with real fighting. Like pushing hands, it teaches you how to sense your opponent’s actions and intentions, by "listening" through your attachment. It also teaches footwork and how to set up your strategy, making your fighting skill more realistic and alive. Anyone who is proficient at a solo Tai Chi sequence and pushing hands should be able to learn this fighting set easily, and make it part of their practice routine.
In ancient times, this form was taught by a few masters to only a handful of trusted students as a part of the final training of Taijiquan as a sophisticated and extremely effective fighting art.
