Zoom class review 20201026
– when learning PM try to keep a 3 count, anything greater than 3 starts to be too many to keep track of
– learning PM is like climbing stairs without knowing where the stairs are, finding the first step can take a loooong time
– try to get rid of ‘human’ things/movements, until then we are only doing a superficial copy of the genuine art
– once we understand the first step, the teacher that becomes redundant
– find/create 3 solids, must be a ‘felt’ solid underneath both upper and lower body, another solid level must be created at least intentionally at hand/elbow and knee level
– must have 3 points within every PM movement
– learn that the modulation of what works for you/your body must be based on gradually increasing how long and low you go in stances to provide a base for PM structure, legs take the body to where it needs to be in push hands or fighting
– cannot ever by-pass training development levels, each level must be learned and mastered to produce the genuine internal movement chains within the body’s connective tissues and bones
– no bypassing levels but can learn to adjust training to gradually increase the amount of training stress placed on the body. learn to walk the tightrope (the imaginary line between too much training leading to injury and too little training stress leading to little or no actual physical changes in connective tissue composition)
– learn to lock the knee and push upwards with knee and downwards with butt/glutes to lengthen kua and strengthen the ground connection, knee should be like an elbow in generating power from the lower body
– kua should be worked, ground down until the joint/tissues are open with no movement restrictions in any direction the kua should go via intention
– learn to expand/stretch until the stretch of the body part becomes a rotation/spiral
– without Peng being full, PM moves will always wobble
Peng should be instantly reproducable

…learning to live, a breath at a time…
