Tai Chi Theoretical Training – Pushing Hands Is A Modern Sport

ACT- Push Hands Modern

According to a recent interview with Senior Beijing Wrestling and Sanda Team coaches, pushing hands is a modern sport and creation. It has minimal to do with the yin and yang theory in a historical sense.  In the late 1970s, confrontational push hand sports were developed, and by 1980s- standardized.   Pushing is the most popular technique in the modern Chen sport. Using one or both hands to push the other side out of the venue. In regards to factual Chen Taijiquan training in feudal times-  this style of push hands is a new concept.
