This is a gem… This is the clearest explanation bio-mechanics at 8.20 minutes of video. Now I gotta try it. 🙂

Master Chen gave specific corrections to each student at the workshop for one specific move, which is called “sink the waist to press elbow” (煞腰压肘 sha yao ya zhou). Each student exhibited both common and individual mistakes that were corrected by Master Chen. This video provides a large amount of focused material for us to learn to send power to our hands.

Key Points are:
– Connect the hand to the rear foot.
– Shoulder goes down to the kua, while the kua comes up to the shoulder.
– Press the elbow on the opponent, and don’t allow it to move anymore. Stretch to the finger.
– When it is done right, there is a centrifugal force (unexpected power).
– Whenever the opponent is strong, we stretch. Whenenver the opponent is weak, we just hit him.
– Shoulder stays on top of the kua, and this forms an axis. The hand stretches around this axis. It stretches so much that it goes around and touches the kidney (your back).
– There is so much stretch that you are encapsulating the opponent.
– If we can’t transmit the power to the hand, the arm is going to be broken.
– 20:40 Master Chen demonstrated how to get around the opponent, and progressively switch the pivot to complete the rotation. He also demonstrated how to turn the incoming power from the opponent into a non-moving dot, from which the power travels outside through a stretch.
– We need to create length (to be long).

Common mistakes are:
– Shoulder gets away from the kua.
– Shoulder pops.
– Shoulder pushes into the opponent.
– Shoulder moves in the direction of the hand.
– We stand too high.
– Our movements are making ourselves short.
