The Gearbox 3

by Mat Beausoleil on 2012/01/18

When the body becomes accustomed to moving through the forms in a connected way, the structure of the body will naturally begin to tighten up. As a result, the over exaggerated stretching movements previously used to open up and recondition the body should be adjusted and made smaller and tighter. Read more

Chen Style Taijiquan Practical Method pays a great deal of attention to the lines on the human body.

One concept which seems to come up in almost every lesson and principle Master Chen teaches is connection.  But what does “being connected” actually mean? How do we achieve it and what are the benefits of being connected? I think these are all important questions that any serious Chen Style Taijichuan Practical Method student needs to explore and understand in order to gain a deeper understanding of this complex art.  While most practioners seem to focus on the external choreography of the art, which is the first step and the foundation of the Yilu, I think the answer to what connection is can only be found by focusing on what happens inside the body. Taiji is, after all, an internal martial art!

Taiji and Mechanics

September 7, 2010

When Master Chen demonstrates push hands and he “pushes me out”, I sometimes feel subjected to an overwhelming push or pull. More often I feel subjected to a combination of a force and a strong twist. This combination seems to be even more difficult to counter act.
