 什么是太极推手?

两个人,互相站住,目的是不移动自己的位移,将对手推得失去平衡产生位移。每次大概1分钟就能得出胜负,如此反复。

 太极推手的本质是什么?

推手得本质是,两个人就是两个操作系统,操心系统的目的就是保持自身平衡,当挑战者来推对手时候,挑战者就是一个黑客系统在攻击另一个操作系统,如果黑客系统的招数超出了对手的防御能力,则可以获胜。但是这一次的攻击方式则会被对手获取,增加至操作系统的防御数据库中,下次再遇到同样的攻击招数,很可能不再奏效。

 太极推手要如何提高?

创造出新的攻击方式,例如假动作,假动作的假动作,制造惯性,利用对手的惯性来让其自己失去平衡,等等。

 太极推手有什么好玩的地方?

推手是一个体育竞技游戏,类似于打篮球,打羽毛球。对抗性就是乐趣之一。推手还需要创造,需要动脑子去琢磨。当然推手本质上是武术,这已经足够有趣了。推手背后还承载这中国的文化和智慧。这些东西滋养着我们,我们足够幸运了。

 [Pushing Hands] - Introduction to T'ai Chi Pushing Hands

 What Is Pushing Hands?

You and your opponent, standing face to face. You try to push your opponent off his/her balance and to move from where he/she stands, when you stay put to your spot and keep your balance. It usually takes only 1 minute to win or lose a round.

 What Is the Essence of Pushing Hands?

Two players pushing hands are like two confronting operating systems. The purpose of each system is to keep its own balance. When challenged by an opponent, it’s like being hacked by another system. If the hacker system manages to find a way to breach the defenses of the hacked system, it could win. However, the way of attacking will be acquired by the hacked system and added to its defense database. So if the next time you try to hack it through the same way, it probably will not work.

 How to Improve Your Skill?

Invent new ways to attack, such as the use of feint (and to feint to be feinting), inertia (to make your opponent lose his/her balance), and so on.

 What’s Interesting About Pushing Hands?

Pushing hands is a competitive game, like playing basketball or badminton. The rivalry is one of the places where the fun is at. Also, you need to think about and innovate upon the ways to attack and defense. Pushing hands, in essence, is a kind of martial arts. You can explore into the Chinese culture and wisdom behind it, with which we are lucky enough to nourish ourselves.
