T'ai Chi Sensing Hands Description


'On the Back' of T'ai Chi Sensing Hands

Popularly referred to as "Pushing-Hands," the two-person training practice of Sensing-Hands (Tui Shou) has never been adequately presented in English-until now. With translations from Chen Kung's Chinese classical work, which has long been considered in Asia as the "Bible of Tai Chi, Stuart Olson's Tai Chi Sensing-Hands is the most comprehensive and definitive work ever published on Sensing-Hands training.

Sensing-Hands is the training system that develops the basic skills and internal energies of Interpreting, Yielding, Neutralizing, and Issuing the fundamentals for mastering the practical applications of Tai Chi.

This book provides the traditional concepts from which all Tai Chi Self-Defense methods have developed, revealing the long-guarded secrets previously unavailable to Tai Chi students.

Contained within are detailed explanations and photographs of the Eight Styles of Sensing-Hands and the Four Movements of Fixed-Stance and Active-Steps-which incorporate the posture movements of Warding-Off, Rolling-Back, Pressing, and Pushing.
Included are instructions on how to perform the ten exercises in High, Medium, and Low posturings of Closed and Direct Stances, and how to incorporate Tao movements and practice Free Sparring.

Also provided is a detailed explanation on the original and true meanings of Adhering, Sticking, Joining, and Following-the traditional terms for applying Warding-Off, Rolling-Back, Pressing, and Pushing.

"No Tai Chi student should be without this book, as the concepts presented, both for the beginner and advanced student, are so valuable and necessary that it should be read over and over again.

The contents of this book will make even the most advanced student feel like a beginner.

"Stuart Olson is the first to undertake the formidable task of translating into English the section in Chen Kung's original book on Sensing-Hands. Many of the concepts and techniques Chen presented in his Chinese text are very subtle and esoteric, and translating them into English requires someone who is Western, fluent in translating Mandarin, and deeply familiar with Tai Chi Chuan and all its subtleties. Stuart Olson is uniquely qualified for this task."
-Jonathan Russell, Senior Student of Master T.T. Liang
