Martial Method and strategy

Tuishou (pushing hands) is a sophisticated training system that teaches subtle and profound methods for overcoming more powerful opponents.

It is a fun way to develop profound and subtle martial skills. Tuishou is designed to be practised safely and cooperatively, although there is a competitive version that is part of some martial arts tournaments.

"Mastery is not about practising a style, or purchasing knowledge, or self-aggrandisement. It is about practising an art, developing a pedagogy, and transcending the ego.
Teaching mastery is not about marketing "a style" to students who want paint-by-numbers instruction, simplistic knowledge, and self-validation. The best teachers I know are those who seek to liberate their students from the restrictions of style, from the limits of knowledge, and from delusions of self."

- Ian Sinclair
