Tuī Shǒu 推手Training Part 3
Once we become familiar with Dìng Bù Dān Tuī Shǒu 定步單推手 – Single Hand Stationary Pushing Hands, then we should move on to Dìng Bù Shuāng Tuī Shǒu 定步雙推手 – Double Hand Stationary Pushing Hands, we should not stay on Dìng Bù Dān Tuī Shǒu for too long as we only need to become familiar with the movements. this is because single hands allows us to use a very simple style of Tuī Shǒu and we do not need it to be so good. In the future when our Tuī Shǒu is good, then our single hand Tuī Shǒu automatically be good. it is just like a professor doing secondary school homework – they will find it to be quite easy.
Dìng Bù Shuāng Tuī Shǒu begins the same way as single hand Tuī Shǒu. First, we measure the distance by putting our hands together, then we match the feet together and get comfortable in the position. then one hand controls the wrist on the other hand holds a partner’s elbow. Once we have this beginning position, we can start the movements.
