But I'm loving this discussion...it makes me smile...if there is no attack, then there is no need for TaiChi.
(To me this is ideal...No fight...It is one reason I appreciate TaiChi ~the non aggressive attitude which seems inherent to its essence.
As a martial art, TaiChi is for use against attacks is it not?...It is not designed to go out and terrorize someone who will NOT fight with you)
Yes, i agree with you opinion that tai ji is a theory for non-aggressive force
As a martial art, the purpose of taichi quan is devised for fighting with enemy in the battlefield.However, it contains a lot taoist's theory for non-aggressive.When i pushed hang with someone,the only thing in my mind is to defense and attack with opponent without considering the taois's peaceful theory.I think it is the humanity and natual reflection of common people.When i practice taiji, my teacher advice me:At practicing,though no man is be with you, you should exercise taiji as if someone attacked you:When fighting, though someone is with you, you should fight with him as like no one attack you.
I think in daily life if no one attack us, most of us will not do at first for it is illegal and also break the principle of taiji.
However, if there is a match between two people,both of them remember this principle and do not want to attack first,how to avoid this situation?
At hand-pushing who attack first will have some disvantages,because one must use his own force, and easily be trapped.The defender will take advantage of his own softness and emptness to neutralized the force by the opponent, and easily break the opponet's balance. Therefore, what can i do in this situation,that a stronger or not stronger man is unwilling to attack, only hopes that i attack first and then count me with softness and then break me balance and then throw me away or tackle me,which i want to repond the same to him.Does this strategy mean hand-pushing is a martial art which is only waiting to be attacked beacuse who attack fisrt, who failed.
(stop thinking of just your body, its his mind that you need to push. The method is to find his mind and follow it. This can be done without any movement on the outside (inner skill) there is no waiting to be attacked its just not done with the body as you suggest)
(The real question is how to practice this, start by not moving and finding the others center with your mind after you can do this, follow the movements of the center with you mind the rest you should be able to understand with out anyone telling you)
Sorry, i cann't understand what you meant clearly and also did not know how to apply to opponent.
It sound mysterious. could you describle it with example?
And i have a question,even if i find his body center,Unfortunately,the center was stable. Worse than all,if i want to break his center,i must attack or say that should first use force without utilizing the opponent's force ,while he was willing to defend, what can i do?
