The brushing knee block in Tai Chi is easy with these tips, get expert advice on martial arts and exercises in this free video.
Well welcome back to the program of Tai Chi. Now we are going to talk about the brushing knee stroke. Brushing knee, yeah. Do you really have to brush your knee? No, actually it is just a name for down block. Now let us do it together beginning with this hand. Brushing knee stroke, a push, coming back. I believe you remembered round house kick, front elbows. What is this for? Take a look again. Brushing knee stroke, rocking back. Brushing knee stroke, rocking back. Now there are three points I would like to talk. First of all, brushing knee stroke. One. Again. Again. One. It is just like down block. The finger position can be this, or that, but most likely be kind. Be kind to the person attacking, if he is not threatening your life be kind. Just give him a push as a warning. If you are really facing a life danger, then you poke. At this moment, take a look. Brushing knee stroke, poke, back. Why am I asking you to step back? You are blocking in case he is smacking you with an elbow. We saw it already, elbow, landing right here. How about your legs? How to do it? Imagine that, and elbow. Remember, when someone is throwing a weapon up here with a hand he won't kick because they can not coordinate together at the same time. So in block your best timing is a kick. Block, kick. A block, kick. But in Tai Chi it did not show that much you got to find that out. One more time. Brushing knee stroke, this. Now when we swing back, elbow block. We have a leg right here because we can always pick up the knee and poke. Does that make sense to you? Thank you.
