White Ape Presents Fruit and Getting the size

In this training session Master Chen corrected section 6 and 1 of Yilu. He took some time to correct white ape presents fruit. Master Chen said:

“It is a strait move with a big curvature, but the big curvature does not stop my fist from going strait.”

This was used to describe how to perform the technique while moving around the defense of your opponent without changing the trajectory of the fist. This involved the a rotation of elbow; shoulder; and torso, while keeping the fist on the track. When done correctly this created a strait trajectory with the fist while the body parts behind the fist form the curvature. Master Chen demonstrated its use against both a strike and a block.

Durring Front gate cannon Fist, Master Chen stopped me and told me I was not being big enough. This stemmed from two problems. First after the technique Turn and Lotus Kick, I withdrew my hands which is against the Chen Style Practical Method Principles. Second, when performing the Front Gate Cannon, I was not using my elbow, shoulder, and Kua properly. Master Chen remarked:

“Bigger is elbow, shoulder, Kua, elbow, shoulder, Kua. In the future you remember our entire Yilu and Cannon Fist both: elbow, shoulder, Kua, elbow, shoulder, Kua. There is no other move.”

He made me do the technique a number of times after demonstrating how it should be performed. He insisted that I make these internal parts bigger. After this we went on to the first section corrections.
