Pushing Hands or Sticking is a huge world within the martial arts. It is a playful practice that brings awareness to our structure and develops sensitivity in our bodies. It is attribute training and therefore not limited to a particular style or system, nor does it require experience to begin.
In this seminar we will cover a variety of sticking methods and exercises used at Infinity Arts. Our goal is to have our movements become more fluid and spontaneous. This happens as we respond organically to how our partner is moving rather than repeating a set of pre-arranged techniques. Drills and exercises will ensure a common vocabulary of movement as we continue into free flow and conversational style sticking.

Infinity Arts teaches a family system of movement. It is comprised primarily of Fook Yueng Chuan (a southern method of Chinese gung fu ), a method of Japanese Aiki-Jiitsu and Tien Shan Mountain Chi Gung. Though it has a history that dates back over a thousand years, it remains an accessible method of improving body mechanics, mindfulness, and personal security.
