Pushing Hands III: Capture the Moment

White Stork Flaps its Wings

Left: Ma Yueh Liang Pushing Hands with Gerald A. Sharp
Right: Wu Style’s "White Stork Flaps Its Wings"

Whether a practitioner moves slowly or quickly is not necessarily a factor. What is essential, is that the opponent’s zhong ding (or, central equilibrium) is revealed or compromised. This can be accomplished through patience, precision, or both, in order to pinpoint and expose the opponent’s weakness or opening. On the left, Ma Yueh Liang applies the art of capturing the central equilibrium with patience and slowness, while on the right, Gerald A. Sharp seizes the center of gravity with the shape of White Stork Flaps Its Wings. The unique martial application of the internal martial arts of T’ai Chi, Hsing I, and Pa Kua is to unveil weaknesses in the opponent’s situation, and neutralize and redirect them with the least amount of force.

Wu Chi Book


Comprehensive Chi Kung

The book Chi Kung, of the Wu Style written by Gerald A. Sharp and Patricia Kessler is also one of our most successful book and video combos. Wu’s Chi Kung is organized in two series as follows: The Eight Methods and the Five Elements, both of which are inter-related, yet address various aspects of chi flow and connective tissue enhancement. With over 300 illustrations, it is published in a horizontal format with a wire binding, in order to make it easy to stand up; much like an easel for easy reference during practice. Check out this highly informative and practical Chi Kung book and video special.
