EXTRA TRAINING SESSIONS
Tuishou practice for 2018

Tuishou or 'push hands' practice with a partner is a very important aspect of Taijiquan as it brings everything together that we are studying helping us to evaluate our own progress. In these extra sessions we'll be able to explore the various push hands drills allowing beginners to build up their repertoire and for more advanced students to blend all the drills together. This class is suitable for everyone.

Lotus Nei Gong hosts a number of courses throughout the year around the UK. All courses cover theory and practical work.
Please visit www.lotusneigong.net for more details.

Recommended reading

Below is a list of books I can recommend. Damo's books are particulary good as they are our 'class bibles' and contain everything we study, they are open and clear to understand. There's also plenty of interesting articles to read on www.scholarsage.com
