The theory has a sequence of different stages. In practice, the sequence is often opposite of how it is described in theory.

The stages of Practical Method learning is 1, open the kua (joints), 2, rotate, 3, don't move.

When we learn and practice, we must first find an external locked spot (don't move), and then we can rotate. The end result of this will be the opening of the kua (joints).

Exercise 1:

Rubber between the hand and the foot. Bend down first. Lock the upper body. Push the kua forward towards the rubber.  The focus of this exercise is to train the kua, the use of power in the kua to extend the rubber. This is converting a horizontal movement to a vertical one. We want to train a great range of kua movement. Gradually, increase the tension of the rubber.

The above exercise trains a vertical movement. This is a precursor to the movement needed to do Six Sealing Four Closing. Read more

Rubber Cord Training for Kua

 

Lock head, shoulder and elbow into one piece. Make sure the elbow is being pushed into the palm.

Have rubber cord under lead foot and in lead hand.

Get into position (see picture). The upper body (waist up) and lower body (below waist) are solid like 2 separate pieces of wood.

Shove front kua forward into the elbow that goes into the hand holding the rubber cord. This action from the kua makes the back straighten.

The strength of the rubber cord has to be more than you can handle. Make the tension “real” and size of cord needs to be just right that the power is coming from the kua and not other body parts.

The body of a Practical Method person moves up and down by the knee going up and down.
This is a specialized technique. Without professional targeted training, one cannot make the knee go up and down.


The normal knee up and down is called Guixi, which is an error.

In this video, Master Chen Zhonghua explains that proper knee up and down means and how to train your body to do it.

In Practical Method, Two-dimension means you are locked into a stiff track and are rendered immobile. Three-dimension gives you the full range of motion.
This works both ways. You want to lock your opponent into a two-dimensional frame so that you can manipulate him. At the same time, if a particular part of your body needs to be locked and stable, you can lock it into a two-dimensional frame to your own benefit.

Each move has to have vertical (up and down), Rotational (Left and right) and Horizontal (Inside Outside) elements.
Rotational movements are in fact protective movements. You rotate around your opponent's point of contact so that you can go over him without disturbing him.

Today’s exercise is to practice 别开. Get stuck with the opponent at the top, use the kua to rotate the waist. The energy through the middle of the chest must get to the hand.

Set up my hands on something that is totally locked.

标准 is 认可。

Yilu is the first standard when we first learn taiji.

He talked about the story of the storyteller from the native people.

The story words went with the rhythm of music.  If they are wrong, they can’t continue.

Form and Applications were separate before.

Every move has two parts to it. One is do get ready and the other is to act. Then we repeat this, like the counting of 1,2, 1, 2, 1, 2.
Students will not be able to distinguish the order of the sequence and do 2, 1, 2, 1.
Because when you don't see the starting point, the rest will not show the order of movements.
