Teaching Notes for Richmond Hill Class on Jan. 14, 2017

by Kelvin Ho on 2017/01/16

  1. Ken Lang joined the class for the first time. He started learning about twisting the towel.  He has been doing taiji for 10 years, and went to study at Chen Village for 6 weeks.  His initial impression was that the Practical Method elbow-in was similar to what he learned in Chen Village. His teacher there was Master Chen Zhaosen.
  2. We reviewed twisting the towel, and how the hand is to be connected to the foot, and how to push the foot against the ground to squeeze out the hand.
  3. We did an exercise with one person pushing the other person’s hand up the arm, and how to prevent the shoulder being popped up, and how to stretch through the back to the rear foot to find the connection.
  4. We practiced taking out the space.
  5. I told Bruce during push hands, at this point, make it a focus to simply maintain the desired posture regardless of what the opponents does to him.
