receiving force in taijiquan's pushhands exercise
In this video I endeavor to show how one can reflect a person's force back at them when they are using strength. If you watch my partner's feet you'll see that he is uneasy on them because I am reflecting his force back at multiple contact points and multiple directions.
Please do not confuse these exercises with free play - they are designed to develop skills and the rhythmic quality of them allows one to utilize their timing skills.
