During the last Toronto workshop, Master Chen mentioned some common sense guidelines for asking questions at live workshops with him. He said there are only really three valid questions while he is instructing:

  1. Mater Chen, I did not *see* that clearly, can you please show me again?
  2. Master Chen, I did not *hear* you clearly, can you please repeat that again?
  3. Master Chen, I did not *feel* that clearly, can you please do that again?

At another previous workshop he instructed not to rephrase his words, (e.g. “so you’re saying…”). He uses very specific words and they should not be changed.

At the Phoenix workshop Master Chen had someone place a pole from his hand to the arch of his back foot. In w/ elbow his and and forearm slid along the pole. He has a shorter pole placed by his front kua a slightly upward angle. His elbow followed the 2nd pole while the hand stayed on the 1st pole. He then said, it’s actually “out w/ foot” as the hand only guides the direction.
