Something to keep in mind when practicing Yilu, if there is a principle to follow then that principle has to be applied in all moves.

Please comment on what principle you are currently focusing in Yilu practice

I am working on: elbow in, this principle is to keep the arm structure, even though it is not moving inward, in all moves elbow has to have an inward intent

I am working on the shovel step to separate the top from the bottom when stepping.

I’m currently working on opening the elbow whilst connecting it to the Kua.

I’m working on opening my kua … and connecting the top to the bottom.

I’m working on clearly expressing the positive and negative circles in my Yilu training

I am working on separating movements into 3 while stepping.

As a protective mechanism for my knees, I tend to tense the upper half of my body resulting in shoulders rising. I need to separate the upper half or my body from the lower half and learn to ‘sink’ the upper half closer to the dantien. Accomplish by deliberately tucking the tailbone, lowering the shoulders, and maintaining the central axis. Now just remember to do this in every form.
