Master Chen:

Very interesting video. I now see that the form should have peng energy at all times and this can be achieved through “stretch” or “compression”. Do stretch and compression always occur separately/distinctly or can they also occur simultaneously? It appears, for example, that the positive circle is used to train the peng energy for it seems to have “stretch” (the part of the sequence when the front kua pushes into the ground) and “compression” (the part of the sequence when the rear kua pushes into the ground), is this correct?

Thank you!

Peng is an universal energy that is present in all moves and at all times. To say that there must be Peng in every move is correct. To say that “This” or “That” produces peng is also correct. But there has to be more than just “This” and “That”. Whenever there is a stretch, it creates a compression in the corresponding part of the body. Whenever there is a compression, there is a stretch on a corresponding part of the body. When you discover one or two of these things, you are excited. Later you realize that EVERYTHING is like this and everything is the SAME.

This is such an important video. Each time I watch it, I see new layers and it makes me realize new things about all the concepts that you teach. I think even when I’m an old man, I will not have exhausted it.

“Full” is the result of “Ji”(挤),squeeze. This concept was translated as “Press” in the West. Only when one squeezes all the spaces between himself/herself and the opponent, is the state of full achieved.
“Full” is also the prerequisite for all taiji movements.

Great video. However repeating what suhang50 mentioned: from roughly 26.30-28mins there is frozen video. Could the complete video be uploaded again please.
