Moving Step Pushing Hands in Vancouver
My friend and training buddy, Michael Blackburn, is hosting this event in beautiful Vancouver, BC.

Walking drills eventually incorporate previous pushing hands patterns and provide the essential ability to move freely within the framework of good Tai Chi principles. Join us for this unique workshop! Hosted by Vancouver Taijiquan.
