Tai Chi Throwing

Click picture to view video.

Chen Style Taijiquan is known for its sophisticated locks, take-downs and throws. It has also sophisticated counters to these techniques. In this double video clip, Master Chen Bing, nephew of famous Chen style Taijiquan Grandmaster Chen Xiaowang, demonstrates some neat throws on a much larger opponent. He is probably doing this by 'borrowing' his opponent's momentum and adding a sharp burst of his own.
