On this 2nd part of the Yang's Secret House No. 4, Erle takes you further into the secret methods to take your double push hands into real fighting methods. You are taught that you don't really move back and forth in push hands, but rather side to side using economical movement in defence and attack. You are taught how to gain the immense power that Tai Chi has to offer by learning about perfect timing, all gained from your REAL push hands methods. Some very useful and deadly fighting/self defence methods are shown.
These methods come directly out of double push hands using the p'eng/hinge method. This volume is a must for anyone wishing to take their Tai Chi into the realms of realistic street self defence fighting The Secret Houses of Yang are what makes Taijiquan great. This is what distinguishes the 'red herring' Tai Chi from the real thing. What makes a silly, 'you push me, I push you' tai chi into a real fighting self defence system. These 12 houses or rings as they were often called, were what the Masters taught only their most treasured and trusted students and or family members and even went as far as giving us all the wrong information to stop us from getting the 'family jewels' as Yang Sau-chung once told me.
Why is it that we are told that Tai Chi ch'uan means 'Supreme Ultimate Fighting' when we are taught this silly thing of Pushing Hands? Why would you want to do that? You do not push each other in real fighting. This way of pushing hands was also a red herring to keep us off the trail of the real thing of 'Joining Hands', which is the way that we are taught how to fight in Tai Chi. Joining Hands is eye opening.
