Tan Tui Tutorial Road #9

We’re getting up there now with our 12 lesson Tan Tui program. The 9th Road introduces the double palm and what in Tai Chi is known as Lieh or Splitting Energy. It should be about this time that the student is encouraged (if you’re in your garage you’ll have to encourage yourself) to begin practicing the road out of order. It’s not time to mix them all up, quite yet but challenge yourself with their sequence and direction. The purpose of Tan Tui’s tight structure and seemingly mechanical movements is the framework for innovation and experimentation. Once again we challenge you with applications that will force you to hunt through the road to see where they come from but, we assure you, we haven’t cheated any more than we should have.
