Tuishou Instruction

While Taiwan is home to some fantastic martial arts traditions, newer and less traditional martial arts are also growing strong. From tai chi chuan to Brazilian jujitsu, this is the forum for fighters!

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.
