0:25 Master Chen talked about first level of transmission and second level of transmission. First level means that you directly receive the information. Second level is that you receive the information indirectly through another person or group of people who supposingly have received the information directly or through first hand experience. When we get the 2nd level of information, we should always have a little doubt about it.

1:40 Principles, Concepts and Techniques help explain how things work (theories). They must be very clear in our mind. For example, if something is yin, then it can simply not be yang at the same time. If we talk about actions in our body, considering the arm and the torso, when the arm is moving, the torso cannot be moving. If we are stepping, we must only step, and don’t turn at the same time.

4:00 According to daoist principles, we must be very clear (very yin-yang separated). If we are clear, the opponent will become very confused. Where does that cofusion come from? We have many yin-yang pairs, the opponent does not know what to do with them, because they can’t see clearly themselves. Are you doing this or are you doing that?

7:50 How to stretch? The method is to lock the two ends (e.g. front hand and rear foot), and then get rid of all the protrusions (e.g. push the shoulder down). In the demonstration, Master Chen showed the left foot to the right hand through the back of the waist, while the right foot to the left elbow through the front of the waist. The two lines intersected and created a rotation at the waist. Back of the dantian went forward while the front of the dantian went backward.

10:50 For real, movements must be big, e.g. you pull/yank the opponent with your arms, and kick the opponent at the same time with your feet while the body does not move. In the future with training, the actions will become more precise, such as two cables being pull in opposite directions within a single tube.
