While I was sitting at the stage observing how my students are doing , he started to comparing the techniques of Tai Chi with Seni Gayong. He called upon one of my student and starting to choked him. And asked my student to counter or escape from his choking. Definitely my student will get choked because he is new in this arts. After trying he could not escape, so he asked the teenager to choked him. I was looking from the stage, and when he was choked , he make some movements, moving the motion of his body from right to left and the grip of the hand to his neck was released. Its like been pushed, and the power of chi he generate in the movement are great.
I was surprised as well , I had friends back in Malaysia who are a Tai Chi master too, but I have not seen this kind of techniques before. From my view this Tai Chi master are good and are a real master. From the view of a martial artist when someone comes to your class and showing some moves to your students that means that they are trying to share the knowledge of his art and comparing with what he has learned.
So I called my student that had an experience been choking by the Tai Chi master. I show him some simple technique and asked him to try again to choked the Tai Chi master. He did as he was told, this time the Tai Chi master cant escape and he kept trying until he got frustrated and he asked the student to released him. And at that time my pride has returned and Gayong as well. After the test of psychology , the master stay a side and just view the training until the end of the session.And we became friend until today.
