Positive Circle Online Lesson Notes August 31, 2020 – Edward Liaw

Rear shoulder hold on the way out (controlled release)

5 points fighting outward, everything else fights inward

Lock shoulders head, only cave in the chest to drive hand out.  Put hand on chest and move it down as hand goes out to train the right intent.

Clear – locked part must be locked, moving part must be moving

Front kua needs to rotate in turn with waist.  It looks like it comes up towards the shoulder.

Raise of kua up when coming in, chest pushes down when coming out


Rear shoulder must not move when turning waist.  Front kua and shoulder has a large move.


Rotate your spine not your head.  Don’t move your eyes.  Only a rotation, no movement.


Don’t move hand backwards.


Homework, 6 sealing 4 closing, face on to mirror, don’t let rear shoulder move, but it rotates.  1000x.


Dao shou – to change the orientation of the hand.  Coming in, it’s pulling from elbow.  Going out, the hand pulls the arm.


Every body part has a role, but which ones are primary and which ones are secondary (only getting out of the way).


Knee up knee down.  Like a physically solid structure like a bike and the pedals are the knees.  Feels like a foot and a half, but it looks like no move.


6 sealing 4 closing.  First one is 70 rear, 30 front.  Front becomes long back becomes short.  Second one switches the pivot to the rear side of body (rear shoulder/kua axis).
