Tuishou Instruction

Postby El Topo » 26 Aug 2011, 14:20

Hi all. I've been long interested in that fascinating martial art known as tuishou. I've heard that Taipei is a good place to study it, but I wouldn't know where to start, so that's why I turn my question to you, fellow forumosans:

1) Have any of you ever studied tuishou in Taipei/greater Taiwan? What was your experience like, and would you recommend it?

2) Where can I find tuishou instruction in Taipei?

All help is much appreciated.

Tuishou isn't a martial art by itself. Tuishou means "push hands" and it's part of the taichichuan curriculum. Your best bet is to find a taichi instructor in your area and ask them about tuishou. Good luck.
