Really outstanding and concise video! Full of indispensable instruction…. relationship between power, precision, and the spine line, what is “silk reeling ability”?, heads relationship to the root, spiral force and the gears (multiple vectors and exponential power)…much more…. if there is a taiji lesson you want to get…. this is really probably it….pretty amazing to see on film and be able to study repeatedly. Thank you. 🙂 It’s kind of a missing link video, all the little pieces no one ever talks about that actually make it all work….

With this video you can readily grasp the key elements of proper and effective taiji movements, that you can immediately make good use of when you practice your forms (tàolù) and applications (yìngyòng). There are precise and explicit explanations of what to do for rooting, taiji clarity, movement in three dimensions, i.e., three-way split, etc.–all the elements that distinguish the Practical Method from other styles. The explanations are accompanied by hands-on demo with a student as to what important points to keep in mind when performing fundamental taiji movements. For the learner, this mini instructional video provides an authentic sense of being taught by an outstanding teacher, talented and highly-skilled practitioner who follows the traditional method of teaching, through one-on-one oral transmission and physical (hands-on-body-contact) learning.

best ten dollars I ever spent. seriously.

difficulty rating should be 4/5. instruction is very clear. but this is really putting it all together, a lot needs to be correct before applying these principles. great stuff. Bruce is correct, kind of a missing link video. Master Chen’s ability to parse movement into coherent explainable little pieces is his gift. thank you!

Bottom line…at the end of this video Master Chen says “lots of secrets there, huh”…. he is not kidding.

Before watching this video, the Taiji principles I have learned are all compartmentalized. Rooting, 3-way split, positive circle, suspended head. I thought I got it… until I saw how everything was being put together. You gotta get this if you are serious about it.
