Movements and Restriction

by Chen Zhonghua on 2008/07/18

At Master Sun Zhonghua’s apartment in Beijing, I summarized my teachings during the recent June 9, 2008 trip to China and the topic of restriction was on the top.
One of the ways of looking at our movements in Taijiquan is to divide movements into two types:
  1. Movements that causes the body to create an outer going force so that the body is made to move outwards.
  2. Movements that causes the body not to move so that the body can stay in a certain position.

These two types of movements form the proper physical structure for our taiji practice.
