Sunstyle Taiji Applications Part 2

In this second article I wanted to show how we would use the brush knee and twist step application and how this can be adapted for the street. The first photograph sequence shows how we can use this technique classically, then in the second sequence in a street environment. Sun Style is comprised of three arts, Taiji, Xing Yi and Bagua and though the names are the same as other forms of Taiji we use applications from Xing Yi and Bagua.

Lou Xi Ao Bu

Bob is attacked with a punch, he dodges the punch and then hits the opponent with a shoulder charge, it is not a big movement and because the hand controls the hip and knee it causes the opponent to lose balance.



In this next sequence Bob is approached then attacked by two men he uses the same technique to put one into the other and then make his escape.
