Excellent lessons on method and sequence to create a “no move” structure from which to extend. Several analogies are given to clarify meaning. Also instruction on how to manipulate the demarcation line to gain advantage on the opponent. The next section deals with the “Anchor Point” and explains it’s importance in relation to Taiji. Anchor and extension. Power and focal point.

Another point that should be mentioned is that this video contains specific instructions on 6 sealing 4 closing/fetch water. So if you are trying to learn those more properly, check it out.

To me, it cleared a lot of questions.

Very inspiring video. It seems that one can put an anchor point onto the opponent to build a bonding so that you can stretch the power into his body instead of just pulling or pushing which the opponent can easily resist. Through the anchor point, one can also make a focal point of all his power aiming at center of the opponent.

In this video Master Chen demonstrates the application for fist covering the heart.

Master Chen gives very good and clear explanation on the extension that a locked stance as a base is most essential in the extension. Secondly, the Yin Yang split with twisting the rear hand to the left and raise the shoulder enhance the front hand extension. Thirdly, the self compression of the front shoulder also contribute the ejection of the front hand extension.
The idea of Anchor point is also introduced by Master Chen. It is quite amazing that the anchor point could be made by twisting the front arm on the opponent’s arm.
Several important techniques of push hands are also taught in this lecture making this video a very valuable piece of information for beginner and medium level Tai Chi practitioner.
