Master Chen teaches us that Taiji is an “Art of Measuring”, and in this video shows some of the dimensions involved. Measuring weight ( how many pounds of force are being applied ), Measuring length ( how long is the opponents power ), Measuring angle ( what direction is force being applied ), all of which must be subject to a “point of reference”. It seems that although we are trying to achieve equalization, “to match”, we don’t necessarily need to match each component on a one for one basis. Meaning that we can use “length” and “angle” to overcome “poundage” for example. Master Chen shows us several different manipulations. It’s gradually becoming more visually apparent to me that Master Chen is using this ability to manage proportions to “create an edge”, a process which sounds like “the fight for the Meridian”.Then it only takes one grain to trigger the avalanche of consequences. It’s a really great video that also comes with some very good advice on how to get started training to develop these abilities.
