Local & Global Moves, Rotations & Revolutions

by Gavin on 2017/10/10

Here are some of my notes from this morning’s training on Daqingshan where Master Chen went over the two different types of movements in push hands:

  • An opponent can make “local” or “global” moves against you. Local moves involve only part of the body. Global moves involve the whole body.
  • We must learn to match an opponent’s local move with a global move, and vice versa.
  • In Practical Method, local and global moves are as follows:
    - Local = “rotations” occurring in the upper body
    - Global = “revolution” generated through stepping
  • No matter how large a movement is, if it doesn’t involve stepping, it is still a local move.

Hope these notes make sense without seeing what he was talking about. Happy training!
