Ma Yueh Liang Pushing Hands

Dr. Ma Yueh Liang (August 1, 1901 - March 13, 1998) hematologist, author, and teacher was of Manchurian descent and a top disciple of Wu Chian Chuan (Jianquan). He emphasized resiliency and flexibility in Pushing Hands (Tui Shou) which is the advanced level of application of T’ai Chi Ch’uan (Taijiquan) as a martial art. He also advocated Listening (Ting Jing) and Precision (Zhun Que) over Force (Gan). Push Hands, like the intricacies of the T'ai Chi forms, is not learned overnight. While there are enormous benefits and insights in the near term, utilizing Push Hands consistently is the longer road, and very often less traveled by.
