Step two in the learning process (following the observation) is “to copy”. Here on DQS the chinese guys nearly all do thelike Chen Laoshi is doing them in his from 2013. I was used to pull the elbow in as much as possible and changed that, after the observation, that they all are doing it differently. Some days ago, Chen Laoshi corrected my and I had to pull the elbow far more in.
The question for me is not, if the chinese guys are doing it right or wrong, because the outer appearance is variable uppon your level (as I understand), the question is HOW TO KNOW, WHAT TO COPY?
My conclusion is for now, not to copy anyone, except Chen Laoshi.
The problem is, that it was said, that we also have to learn from each other, but perhaps that is more related to pushand- and drillsituations.
What do you think?
