Push hands you could be younger or older. Either way you could use every body part, including your shoulder.
Tung Hu Ling (1917-1992) and a student perform the basic push hands sequence and three step pushing of the classic Yang style of Tai Chi Chuan. Filmed when Tung Hu Ling was younger, possibly when he was in Thailand on one of his trips to teach Tai Chi Chuan.
Tung Hu Ling was taught Tai Chi Chuan by his father Tung Ying Chieh, who was a prominent disciple of the Yang Family’s 3rd generation master Yang Cheng Fu. Tung Hu Ling also had the wonderful opportunity to be personally tutored by Yang Cheng Fu in the Yang style of Tai Chi Chuan.
