9 joints in the body

by admin on 2011/11/09

The body has 18 joints, nine on each side. They are:

  1. neck
  2. chest
  3. shoulder
  4. elbow
  5. wrist
  6. waist
  7. kua
  8. knee
  9. ankle

Wrist and ankle should be locked in accordance with the three-joint theory.

Greetings Master Chen!

I have been following you for quite a while. I live in Austin, TX and have studied Chinese martial arts since I was 14yrs old. My wife is Canadian and wants to go home to Edmonton some time this year, so I wanted to try to schedule some training with you around that. I have been watching your calendar online do not see any seminar/ workshop dates for Edmonton (or the U.S.). What would your recommendations be as far as coming there for training with you? Also, my buddies have hosted many teachers here – how much do you customarily charge to bring you down here for a seminar in Austin, TX? Thank you so much in advance!

Best Regards,

Let me know if you organize a seminar in Austin as i would definitely be interested in that along with several friends here in Houston. Let me know if you are ever in the Houston area.

I think neck and chest are single joints each in the spine and do not have both sides. Right?
