Learning Tai Chi is fun. As for practice…….. yeah, it can be a bitch.
Here’s CG trying to implement what he learned about the 5 bows in Single Whip. He is working on one of the bows.
Looks kinda difficult to learn, right?
Difficult to learn, yes, but not impossible to master. Just gotta work on them details.
Below is my demo :-
Once you understand the 5 bows you can use the bows more flexibly. Below are some example :-
This example uses the bow of the striking hand to generate. Since the technique here is Push which uses two arms, we can then apply the lesson learned from the hook hand as well.
The video below shows the learning of the striking arm bow :-
When learning fajing do not overlook other important points because ultimately opponent is not going to stand there and take it. He will fight back. He will try to hit you.
So you better learn the technique side of Single Whip as well and not just become fixated with the fajing.
