FINALS Josh Waitzkin vs. "The Buffalo" - 2004 Tai Chi World Cup - Moving Step Push Hands
As described in Josh Waitzkin's bestselling book, "The Art of Learning: An Inner Journey to Optimal Performance", this controversial Tai Chi World Cup championship match pits Josh Waitzkin (captain and head coach of Grandmaster William C. C. Chen's 2004 US Push Hands Team) against "The Buffalo" (Shi Jhong Tai Chi College) in Taipei, Taiwan for the 7th Chung Hwa Tai Chi International Championship - Moving Step Push Hands competition. After much deliberation by the judges masters, teammates, and the crowd for biased practices caught on tape in favor of "The Buffalo" (a member of the world's leading Tai Chi Push Hands team), the final decision of the match was reevaluated, with Josh and "The Buffalo" sharing the title of World Champion (Men's division under 80kg).Read Josh Waitzkin's book "The Art of Learning", recounting the events of the Tai Chi World Cup and his experience with his team and beyond:http://books.google.com/books/about/T...In Josh's corner: assistant coach Dan Caulfield, Jan C.
