Hi everyone,

I’ve been looking up and down the webpage to find out what the following abbreviations mean. In words, at least :) )

LFSB – ?????

SWPE – sink waist press elbow

SYYZ (?) -?????

 

All come up in the New York 2018 workshop and the vid doesn’t talk about the remaining two. I GUESS SYY means “seperate yin and yang” but I am clueless about the “Z”

Can anyone help me out? And yeah, I am aware that the mere wording means nothing and I’ll probably not be closer to being able to do it than before but I am CURIOUS :)

Thanks in advance!

Barbara

I was having a discussion with my disciple brother Brennan Toh about what I have been working on with my long term students Gerry and Emily, with specific attention to Lie , one of the 8 techniques of Taiji.  At the North American Practical Method Training Camp last year Brennan was taking me down with this same technique, except his upper/lower body separation was crazily effective….he took out significant space from below without his top moving (his top continued to match my upper body).  This lead to him suggesting the following drill: Read more
