Lao Gong Compression
This footage captures something that i was warned about . Mr. Chan would say to protect your Lao Gong ( Pericardium 8) as it can return force to your Pericardium/ heart/lung area . Alex attempts to forcefully push both of my shoulders with his hands cupped on my shoulders. When Alex pushed me, i received his force and bounced it back via my shoulders. His cupping allowed my returned force to travel up both arms and compress his Pericardium area like a pair of tongs . This action winded Alex and bent him over . This is not healthy and explains why many Tai Chi Chuan practitioners push with their fingertips .
