“Don’t move the shoulders when pushing with the hands” Mini Lessons

by Shopmaster on 2012/05/05

Sorry no trailer

Two videos by Chen Zhonghua. One with Michael Koh on Daqingshan in May 2011. When we push hands or making moves, one of the most common problems is that the whole body (parts other than the part used) are engaged. In this video, Master Chen Zhonghua shows Michael Koh how to push with his hands without engaging his shoulders. As you can see in the video, this is not easy to do.  Presenter: Chen Zhonghua   Length: 2 min.   In: English   Year: 2011  Difficulty:3/5  At:Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The second video is made in Edmonton in Jan. 2012. It is 5:45 long and covers the rotation and movement requirements of the shoulder. How the shoulder can rotate 360 degree. The last topic is on Zhuan Guan.

the top and bottom separation allowing the switching sounds like another way to explain syncopation.

This is a very important video to view. It is arguably the best video ever made describing the role of the shoulder joint’s rotation. Master Chen shows you easily how you can do this and avoid excess movement and incorporate the vital concept of switching.
