Re: Invitation: Competition Taiji Push Hands -The Arnold Classic, Columbus, OH, March

Here's the pdf file from the Arnold festival website:

A couple things are needed to be changed in my reply forum post about the rules.

1) In actual competition we will be giving a 1 minute break in between rounds.

2) Sweeping is actually considered a strike and is not allowed but tripping/hooking is. The difference is sweeping starts from a distance and tripping/hooking is where the foot already has made contact. This rule is to reduce the chance of injury.
