Ten: Reserve

by Hong Junsheng on 1988/06/08


To excessively expose the spirit is another error that must be re- solved. To accomplish this, one must also be reserved.

The internal energy is full
The outside Does not have any pretension
A thousand pound bow Four ounces of arrow
Pulled tightly but not released
As if it has already Reached the target
Mountain rain is coming
A pleasant wind is starting
Just like using military strategy
Stay still like a virgin
With one touch it all releases
With one taste all must cease

This poem is in Grandmaster Hong Junsheng’s book “Chen Style Taijiquan Practical Method: volume one“. You can purchase the book at:
