Melbourne Push Hands Club invites fellow push hands enthusiasts to share knowledge and technique in the fantastic surrounds of the RMIT Melbourne city campus Spiritual Centre (the Old Melbourne Gaol Chapel) My background is Tai Ji Chuan but all styles and experience levels are welcome. There are, of course, a huge ranges of techniques and rule sets that can be applied to push hands. Our aim is to provide a friendly and non-competitive arena to allow the chance to push with as many people and styles as possible to allow the development of the principles we all strive to attain in our daily practice. The only set rule in this space is be polite. Be sensitive to the fact that different styles may allow techniques that your style might generally avoid in push. Talk to your partner and set out your expectations or limitations. Below are general rules to ensure things are kept safe: No trips or throws (hardwood surface). No striking or kicking. No pushing/attacking from the neck up. If you want to break any of these rules get your partners permission first. You are responsible for your own health and safety and just as importantly for your partners safety.
