Movement and Action

by Chen Zhonghua on 2010/10/14

Movement: move that does not cause your opponent to feel the impact.
Action: movement that causes the opponent to feel the impact.
Overall method should be: movement to get in (squeeze) and then action (one of the eight techniques).
All moves in taiji are repeatations of this: movement, action, movement, action, …

When you move, don’t push; when you push, don’t move.

这些原则都说的非常到位,一语中的,减少了以往过多的只有动作而动不了对方的动作,应仔细琢磨,并加以运用,请老师多总结些类似原则。
