    Using strikes and kicks to close the distance so you can throw someone and be on top to submit, strike or get away.

    Not bad, I would remove boxing and the term martial (and replace it with chuan/quan)What did you think of mine?

    I'd leave the term boxing because it really does look like a mix of boxing and wrestling to a noob who is not a highly trained boxer or wrestler. I don't get taught in chinese. Yours was fine but doesn't describe how what you do ends up presenting when used in competition.

    I use the term martial because most Tai Chi is taught purely on a health/yogic sorta basis.

    I was going for the pushing hands approach. Where the 4 aspects of Grasp the sparrows tail are emphasised, which can be described like a rubber ball being bounced. Once this has been developed it can be used for the wrestling in SJ or Sanda.


    There is a saying in Tai Chi "The open hand is 10 times stronger than the closed fist" meaning that throwing/wrestling > boxing. Hence why i wouldn't consider boxing part of the essence of Tai Chi.
