In and Out

by Chen Zhonghua Taiji Academy on 2010/09/28

At the full time class in Edmonton this afternoon, I taught the concept of in and out. The general principle is: “The inside must stay inside; the outside must stay outside”.  Translating this into taiji movement terms, it is “In with elbow; out with hand”.

There is a richness to this simple concept that becomes the essence of what is needed to not only gain ability, but to correctly “do” Taiji. The concept is simple, but the execution is hard – pursue this for a lifetime to improve.
