Martial Art Applications for Tai Chi : Tai Chi: Buddha’s Warrior Attendant Pounds Mortar
Ok, still within Tai Chi beginning, we’re
going to move in to the Buddha’s Attendant Pounds Mortar. I’m just going to move into
Buddha’s Attendant Pounds Mortar and I’ll show you some of the applications for that.
So from here, right foot comes up, right hand comes up, right hand and right leg come up,
and stomping. If you can come in. So I’m going to be keeping the opponent at bay with this
hand. This is a peng energy in here, which is keeping the opponent away. At the same
time as this – you can do anything you want with your hands – this hand is going to come
up, brushing the opponent. Again controlling, this hand is controlling, keeping the opponent
at bay, eventually striking the bottom of his chin. Again, this isn’t necessarily supposed
to be a painful or a powerful strike here, just to control his movements, to keep him
where I want him. So the right hand is going to come up potentially striking the bladder,
knocking the hand out of the way, coming down. So now you can come in again as if you were
– so I’m coming up here – and come in close as if you were going to attack. And this hand
is going to come down, strike here, and I would be crushing his toes with my foot as
I come down.
