Playing around with Tai Chi applications and my video suite…
Fabian is used to taking some shots. Although he has had conditioning training for many years, we always make sure to set the punches in the uprooting direction, when playing around like this. You may notice Fabian’s smile returning immediately after the impact in the last frame.
For structure training, downwards punches into the structure are a good way to strengthen the roots of your students. – But always make sure to pay additional attention during this sort of training as the risk of injury is much higher with this approach.
Stay tuned for our series on form and application: “form follows function” will be the theme of our next posts!
