    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    I'm just going to have to wing it...

    ...because I couldn't get through all the bloody rules before posting.

    Kill me now.

    Beyond that, hello,

    and anyone who wants to seriously train push hands near Gloucestershire is very welcome to contact me.

    Thanks!

    We have rules? Huh.

    Anyway, welcome to BS, mate. Give it some time and read plenty of the threads before posting and you'll get the feel of it around here. Before posting in certain forums, though, make sure you have a basic understanding of each ones different levels of moderation. Some places are heavily moderated, while others aren't.

    Also, Tai Chi and BJJ are an odd mix.

    Just happened to find this in another thread. Not my words, but interesting.

    OTM: What benefits from Tai Chi do you bring to BJJ and vice versa?

    JW: Well, the learning process begins from different places but arrives, ideally, at a similar feeling. In BJJ, you tend to begin with technique, and through repetition you come to a smooth, efficient, unobstructed body mechanics. In Tai Chi, you begin with body mechanics, get a certain internal feeling over months and years of moving meditative practice, and then you learn the martial application of what you’ve been doing all along.

    The essence of Tai Chi is sensitivity to intention. Turning force against itself, overcoming power without meeting it head on. Of course these principles are at the heart Jiu Jitsu as well. In my mind, the arts are completely intertwined and to be honest, the purest Tai Chi I’ve ever felt has been getting my ass handed to me, over and over, by John Machado and Marcelo Garcia.
