Made in a very pedagogic and detailed manner, this film shows the codified fight system of Yang style, the “Great San Shou”, or more precisely “Dui Da” (the word San Shou concerns the free Chinese boxing).
This work with a partner has an aspect of play, and is also very aesthetic, which allows the whole technical range of this style to be performed, thanks to a subtle adaptation of the movements for staged fight.
This training is a very good approach of the martial aspect of Taiji-Quan for it develops many qualities, such as rhythm, explosiveness, precision, dodge, range...
You will be able to practice according to your level and your wishes, in either a very gentle and harmonious way or a most dynamic and powerful one.
In this film, you will enjoy the details of each sequence of both solo forms (Pao-chui or "forms of the cannonball boulet fist”) slow and swift.
This work is followed with an application work with the partner, so that this wonderful combination be complete.
After the 45 detailed sequences, the author presents a few applications on targets.
