Leading the Dance

When you play push hands you need to relax.


The reason is when you relax you can harmonize better. This allows you to join, harmonize and lead which is a lot like dancing where one partner leads and the other follows as can be seen below :-

Stanley is not my Tai Chi student. He is learning Sam Kuen Do (三拳道) via my FB SKD group.

I did this demo to explain some point about borrowing energy. I asked him to give a little resistance and he gave a tiny bit but its enough for me to use it.

I didn’t tell him what to do or not to do. I let him react however he wants to react. And it does look like an out of synch dance.
