I met Alfred Yu and Hannes Richter last year when they came to Phoenix to attend Master Chen’s workshop. They could not come to Master Chen’s workshop this year. So, they invited me to go to Irvine to teach the foundation and Yilu. It’s a short trip for me. I took a morning flight from Phoenix to Orange County, by night I got back home.

There are five people came to the class on Sunday, November 16. Three of them were total new to Practical Method. I taught foundations in the morning. I showed them “twisting towel”, “fetching water”, positive and negative circles, explained the purposes of each exercise, their elements in forms of Yilu, the concepts of “don’t move”, “open kua”, and “rotate”. In the afternoon, I taught the first 13 moves of Yilu, then a little push hand. It was a successful day. One person was going to stay just for an hour. It turned out that he stayed for the whole day.

I will go back to Irvine in late January or early February. If you are in the area, please contact Alfred Yu for more details. His email is mralyu@yahoo.com. His phone number is 949-331-2735.

Chen SittingAt the workshop in Maple Ridge today, we worked on “Stretching”. It is important to remember that a concept must be understood at it core level. We train the basic core elements of the concept, not its derivatives, deviations, adaptations or variations of the concept. For example, the core elements of a “stretch” is a locked point and a moving point. A variation is two moving points. Read more

To truly learn, we have to force ourselves to practice according to the principles; especially when we cannot comprehend, verify or believe.
Most people practice according to what and how they like to practice. That’s not learning.
