Tai Chi Martial Art Applications : Tai Chi: Double Shirt Grab Defense
In this segment, we’re going to be showing
you an application, a possible application against the double shirt grab. Again, a tough
guy coming at you, using deflective and punch. So in this, we come up in the form, turn,
step down, bringing the hands downward, body downward, step through and punch. So if Ray
comes up and he’s a tough guy, giving me a hard time, so I turn, come down, step through
and punch. OK? So we do this slowly. It was so fast you can’t really see so much what’s
happening, is the first thing I need to do is turn. If I’m standing here trying to fight,
use just my arm is useful. First thing, turn my body. Look at what happened to his body
already. Then I turn my body again, and then bring him down. It’s a downward. Already he
is in trouble. So I can step through, punch, if I need to, depending on the situation.
But the whole idea, once again, comes from bringing the from source of the ground, turning
the waist, right? Guiding with the waist. So I bring it from the ground, guide with
my waist, from the ground, guide with my waist, and then sink, pull him down.
