The Tai Chi swinging motion is easy with these tips, get expert advice on martial arts and exercises in this free video.
Now let us move on to the subject of swinging forward and backward. Take a look. In Kung Fu we talk about front stance, back stance. In Tai Chi, those stances are smaller. It is not as tough as what you saw in Kung Fu. Take a look. And the hands are up, this is the fighting position. Or they call it the archery position or playing the harp position. Now imagine that you have a pair of rocking chair under your feet. Once you swing back what do you see? Once you swing forward what to you have? See that again. What are the hands for? Think about it. If I am grabbing someone. So is Tai Chi useful in all martial arts? I think it is; it teaches you to relax yourself. Now, let us put our blocks into it. Someone tries to give you a slap, you still have one hand right here. Or you can do it this way and send it out. What goes in, then what comes out. In, out. In, out. Allow me to explain to you. His hand is coming in, but I have two options. Either poke with this eyes, or go with this one. So watch that one more time. I am coming, I can go in with this one or I can jab with this. The space on my legs, my legs are now moving me forward and backwards. Of course I have got long distance to go, therefore knees are so important. This stance is called swinging back and forth. Thank you very much.
