Tai Chi Symbol: Yin/Yang Sticking Hands (Streaming)
Code: S1040Duration: 112 min
Master Yang, Jwing-Ming teaches you a form of Tai Chi Pushing Hands, traditionally known as Silk Reeling Jin in Chen-style, or Taiji Yin/Yang Symbol Sticking Hands in Yang-style. The main purpose of this soft and flowing training is to ‘connect’ the body, from head to toe, so that you may coordinate your movements effectively. You will also learn to "stick" with an opponent to control and neutralize their movements.
"Once in motion, the entire body must be light [Qing] and agile [Ling], it especially should be threaded together. The root is at the feet, Jin, or movement is generated from the legs, mastered [controlled] by the waist and manifested [expressed] from the fingers. From the feet to the legs to the waist must be integrated, and one unified Qi." - (Taijiquan Classic)
From this Yang-side and Yin-side training, a practitioner will establish a firm foundation for understanding the martial aspects of Tai Chi Chuan practice. This program offers many solo and partner exercises and drills that you may easily follow along with, making self-instruction simple.
The Yang side and Yin side of the training are demonstrated separately, each divided into five parts:
• Self Practice of the Taiji Yin-Yang Pattern
• Stationary Partner Training
• Moving Partner Training
• Parallel Stepping Training
• Bagua Circle Stepping Training
• 10 Video Lessons / 112 Minutes / 1 Hour 52 Minutes
Lesson features senior YMAA students Ramel Rones and Kathy Yang. This program and the Tai Chi Pushing Hands lessons 1 & 2 will help you develop a proficient level of Tai Chi Chuan practice.
Dr. Yang's tai chi can be traced back to the Yang family through Master Kao's teacher Yue, Huanzhi (樂奐之), an indoor disciple of Yang, Chengfu (楊澄甫). Dr. Yang continued his study and research of Taijiquan with Master Li, Mao-Ching (李茂 清).
