Dinner at Mike’s (Disciple #3) in Abbotsford with Zhang YanPing who moved to Abbotsford from Jinan.

Three new student attended, so Master Chen went over foundation and application of Yilu first move.

We did a lot 13 Yilu repetition with counting. The idea is to be clear in each step of each move. Master Chen mentioned once student learn the choreography, it is helpful to break down each move to understand it better, then latter perform it together again.

This sequence of breaking and putting it back should be repeated several times as student progresses in practice.

A 4 videos series explaining the concept of using joint power to generate force.

Using joint power is different then muscle power because using joints keep the body in place. Muscle power often rely on momentum which can be manipulated by opponent.

In addition joint power is additive, so the more the body is open, the greater the output.
