Taiji became one of my favorite non-java-related sparetime activities over the past years. Thanks to the TAO-CHI Institute in Duisburg, i learned to like the first few smooth movements of a style, i cannot really name today. Lateron, after movin to Essen/NRW my first instructor was Peter Gräber, who not only raised my interest in the Yang style as practiced in http://bewegungsraum.com but also my excitement for the push-hands partner practice. I use every possible opportunity to improve on that. My currrent instructor is Ulrike Kormann, and I enjoy her teachings very much. The last push-hands Event I enjoyed was 6th International Push Hands Meeting in Hannover, which – like 2005 – was an overall great experience. You can get an overall impression how something like a ‘push-hands-meeting’ looks like here.
The next push-hands Event I will participate in is the 6th Dragon und Tiger Meeting in Bremen.
