Traditional Yang-style Push Hands Curriculum
Eight disc-framed fixed-step push-hands (The '1-8')
(Bapanjiazi Tuishou 八盤架子推手)
with Javier Arnanz
1-8', are the traditional foundation exercises for Yang-style Taijiquan push-hands. Like a good coach, the 1-8 lead students progressively, step-by-step, into comprehension and skillfulness.
Javier Arnanz is from Madrid, Spain and is an 'Indoor student' (tudi 徒弟) of Master Sam Masich and the Internal Arts Method. He trains and teaches the internal arts for health, meditation and martial application.
Due to COVID-19 concerns, this workshop will respect ‘social distancing’ and mask wearing if necessary and some course content may be modified. Although we will studying partner application concepts, the practices may be undertaken as solo exercises or with an implement depending on current legal safety guidelines.
