Two power training exercises on BWAPM

  1. Touch the opponents arm, jerk with the elbow-in, if we get stuck, turn with waist.
  2. Next move. Place the left foot on opponent’s knee and grab the opponent’s arm, small elbow-in and small kick to the knee to jerk the opponent.

-Learning method. Learning is like you have a size 24 bike chain and try to fit on a size 24.5 bike. When you fit the front, the back will not fit; when you fit the back, the front will fall. It is never complete. We have to keep going back and forth until real physical changes happen, until the body is stretched out. Making both sides right is the training. Master has talked about this a few times, such as, we have to learn to advance with flaws, the process of forge, how to get the head and the chest position right, learn to compromise.

Yilu Correction:

  • The dantian should stick out, while the chest should cave in. It looks like an S.
  • Tie shoulders to the kuas.
  • Initiate action from the kuas.
  • BWAPM: Throw the right kua from down under and up to so the right knee touches the right elbow Read more

-Today we started with a ‘simple’ move of locking the forearm and only use the rotation of the waist/torso to propel the forearm to go forward.
The forearm is dead. First it is one piece. Second, it is in a tight tube, so no sway sideways. Third is the arm itself does not have power. In this way, there is yin yang separation.

- Elbow/kua relationship. The elbow must touch the kua. Eventually the elbow always aims towards the kua.

- Integrity of the body. Keep the integrity by pulling the shoulders down and the kua up. The two must compress. Master showed this in relation to turning flowers out of the bottom of the sea on the R shoulder and R kua.

- Wavy Spoon/Pencil Illusion. Hold a pencil horizontally and shake it up and down. The pencil is totally firm, but the movement creates an illusion causing us to believe it is soft and wavy. Our body must be totally firm. When you hit it, it is like steel. The movements of the joints cause the illusion of being soft. Read more

- Form 70 High pat on horse. As step back, the R elbow need to keep going inward behind you. There is a second crack with the elbow as your opponent steps away. The elbow is tied to the kua with a rubber band, so there is integrity.

- Form 73 White ape presents the fruit. R in with elbow, rotate on R shoulder-kua line. Rotate on L shoulder-kua line fist stretches longer on the turn. Rotate the kua, hand does not move, the middle has to be tighter than the rest parts of the body. Elbow needs to aim to touch the kua so the moves are deep.
Step back to double shake feet is similar. Both shoulders need to go over. As the torso rotates, the R hand stretches out. Hand out from the top, it is a positive circle.
Both are six sealing four closing. Master Chen had a video before about this move we need to train 1000 times. Pure Gold https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WS1xgzN75Qw

We practiced one knee up one knee down movement. The move after second Flash the back and before going into the jump.
It is the knee movements caused the kua to open, creating a hole which allows the torso to fall straight down.
The going down motion and the torso rotation are one move. The torso is passively dropping. The hands do not move, and the arms are adjusting accordingly.

- To train the elbow. Lock the shoulder and hand completely, better to ask someone else to hold it, only move the elbow. The movement is very small, like the door hinge. The movement of the elbow is the same as the knee.

- To change the direction of the fingers, we lock the wrist and the hand, move the elbow and the rest part of the body. Once the body is well trained, the movements can be much bigger.

Form 9 Walking obliquely on both sides.

Stay on the 45 degree line.

- The kick. Make sure the weight is fully on the R leg. The back is totally locked while doing the kick. Stretch from the back of the leg, push the knee into the kua-heel line. Use the middle part of the bottom of the foot targeting the knee. Heel lands without any moves in the upper body.
