Tai Chi Level 2: Rocking and Rolling Action for Absorbing and Projecting


Tonight Sigung Richard Clear demonstrated the martial uses of Rocking and Rolling for self defense. This technique allows you to absorb and project the mass of an attacker while remaining in motion the entire time.

In previous classes we have covered turning and shifting for absorbing and projecting. Tonight's lesson focuses on putting it all together in a three dimensional way. By adding this "rock and roll" action to the mix, it adds deceptive power to any turning or shifting you are doing.

You can see this training is very powerful. This video is just a recap of our class. For the full class, and our Level 1 and Level 2 Tai Chi curriculum (along with a host of bonuses), visit us at:
