Tai Chi teacher, Elaine Waters once said, â€œIf you want to be good at push hands, imagine yourself as an 80 year old, fumbling in the dark, and that you donâ€™t feel very well.â€
She said that with this scenario in mind, you are more likely to take it easy and be quite mindful of what you do.
I went outside at 5a.m. this morning. It was very dark out there. And as I seem to prefer to fumble in the dark, I didnâ€™t turn on any lights.
I have to say, Elaine was right, I was very careful in how I moved.
Still, I know my skills leave room for improvement, as Iâ€™m feeling pretty good.
But, two out of three ainâ€™t bad.
