Top-Bottom Open

0:15 We must aim at the center of the opponent on contact, not too high, not too low. In this demo, the finger is aimed at the center of the opponent, and the elbow is the fixed point, making an S shape. Half of the S went from the elbow above the forearm to the fingertip, and half walked from the elbow below the upper arm to the armpit. Stretching out the armpits, caving-in the chest, stretching the back to the top of the head, and then back to the fingertips completes a circle.

4:00 We will press down on the ground behind us. With support, the force will bounce back to the opponent. We want to control the direction of aiming.

Left-Right Open

4:15 In this demonstration, imagine the S is placed horizontally. Left hand back arc, right hand forward arc. The opponent is trapped inside and forced to spin.

4:48 Master Chen inserted his opponent’s left hand as the centre (non-moving point), his right foot was stretch to the left, and his right hand was stretched to the right.

Inside-Outside Open

6:21 When the opponent pushed forward, Master Chen sank his body to match, and then changed the horizontal motion into a vertical rotation.

Front-Back Open

7:44 Master Chen passed by the opponent, so that the opponent would not have any feedback as he went in. It’s slippery like oil on his body. His hands were then stretched against his back.

Top-Bottom He (Join Harmoniously)

8:00 Kua goes up, shoulders comes down, this removes the space in between. It should be noted that Chen Xu can adjust an individual body part under the instruction of the teacher. This alone is difficult to do itself. We must continue to practice foundations and change our body all the way until we are said to be reborn to have this ability to control the body.

8:17 Master Chen’s shoulder and kua come together, and they squeeze out a forward line. The hand travels along this line.

Continuous Energy Flow

9:05 Master Chen demonstrated the difference between broken and continuous energy flow. The characteristric is that the stretch becomes very long.


Kelvin Ho July 2, 2020 at 4:48 pm

He (Join Harmoniously) Kua

9:45 Master Chen’s kua came to the opponent’s waist, and his shoulders also went down to the opponent’s waist.

12:00 Three become one: Three points merge to the center of three points. This is an example of taking out space.

14:00 When kua can’t get to the proper location, there is no power. In this demonstration, the contact points don’t move while Master Chen moved his kua to the proper location. As all the space was taken out, and the opponent fell down by himself.

It is very difficult to only adjust the kua during such engagement..


Kelvin Ho July 2, 2020 at 4:53 pm

Left-Right Open

15:17 In this demonstration, the lower body (right foot) moved to the left and the upper body (right hand) moved to the right (top-bottom separate). The opponent is also not allowed to go away from Master Chen, and he was led to spin to the ground. The opponent was like spinning inside a blender.


Kelvin Ho July 2, 2020 at 4:57 pm

15:43 Filling the kua shortened the distance. We should not push the opponent away, which increases the distance). Use the front kua as the centre, let the opponent fall down right beside outselves without allowing them to away.


Kelvin Ho July 2, 2020 at 11:50 pm

Foot Sweep

17:15 Master Chen’s body has a vertical axis. He rotated around it. Although his left foot walked outside, this axis did not move. He changed the support foot to the left foot. The right foot can be inserted into the opponent between his feet. The opponent was blocked by Master Chen’s right foot and fell down.


Kelvin Ho July 2, 2020 at 11:54 pm

A circle is not drawn with a single motion

18:15 Use the left foot for the first half of the circle and the right hand for the second half. This circle was also completed using the bottom for the first half, and the top for the second half.


Kelvin Ho July 2, 2020 at 11:54 pm

Empty and Solid

20:30 First push hard with the opponent. When the opponent thinks that you will do it again, he also pushes hard, we go in.. After entering, hit with the kua while holding the opponent at the top without pushing him.
