I saw this on youtube
Does anyone know who this is?
I particularly liked the performance of the two man "stealing the bowling ball" set.
It says his name is Shi Xiaomin.
Very impressive movement.
I have seen a lot of this type stuff. What is it supposedly training Tim?
When looking at it it seems that he´s working his right arm more then his left, holds the boll more with the right hand
Thing is I´ve got this tape where a guy called mark cheng says that tai chi chuan is more
"right - handed" when it comes to striking - big "thrust-striking" that is.
Could that be the reason?
anything that you can do with the right, you can do with the left.
im guessing that he was doing the right side form.
The Taiji ball was invented as a means of adding resistance to the movements of the Taijiquan basics and forms.
The ball allows for circular and spiral movement, and the sensitivity involved in balancing the ball in motion.
Well - ´couse you can do that but when looking at the form - Yang style - that is the only obvious strike you do is with the right hand - maybe lu chan was right handed?
I wish i could go back and ask him.lol
That would be fun and at the same time take a look of that really was the old yang - style
All traditional Taijiquan forms are right hand dominate.
Many traditional styles are right hand dominate too.
Goes back to the cavemen when they'd pick up a stick and hit you over the head with it. It was usually the right hand...
