Mirroring, learning, teaching.
Introducing someone new to single pushing hands, we started with mirroring each other, aways good for a laugh... Then we looked at ward-off, roundness, softness, yielding like a tree in the wind. 3 hours later: pushing hands! After 14 years teaching this stuff it is still wonderful to introduce someone to it, and to learn and develop another way to share it.
Yesterday Michael from Tuesday group and I had our first session learning Left Side Special Form with Mark. Fantastic, brain-bending, lots of work... Very exciting and way more detailed (yet completely consistent) than anything I have ever attempted before, with any teacher. Back to school for me - happily.
