For Tai Students: Understanding Why We Push From The Heel

Deep and detailed, you can skim this and still get the gist. It is a long and complicated way of saying, “just do what we tell you,” in class.

Once this way of moving becomes habitual, you will continue to derive benefits in all areas of your life from then on. Kind of like most of the rest of the Tai chi that we teach.

NOTE: You are going to need this: 

Moment of a force/torque

A force whose line of action does not pass through the centre of gravity will cause the body to rotate and translate if it is unopposed – this turning effect is the moment of force.

Human movement is the consequence of an imbalance between the components of these forces that produce rotation; the capability of a force to produce this rotation is referred to as torque or moment of force.

The moment of force is the perpendicular distance from the force’s line of action to a specific point or axis of rotation.

Moment = force x distance

The Tai Chi Classics


Of which this is one. The Tai Chi Chuan Ching (or Classic) Translated by Dan Docherty. There are four others. A reading of the Classics will help you appreciate some of the nuance of Tai chi practice. It will also help you understand the depth and breadth of it’s application in all aspects of life.

Traditionally, the Classics were memorized and chanted while performing Nei Gong (or Internal Strength) exercises. So many layers of meaning and learning. All five “Pillars” of Tai chi interact and enhance the others for a complete system unlike any other.

Join us on Monday nights at Peak Health & Fitness at 7 p.m. as we will crack open the door on Tai chi for you.
