Jacek Wolochowski
Jody Hall
  • Hand and elbow relationship is not there. We need a twist there.
  • Partner Exercise: Partner holds onto your hand to ensure it does not move. Twist the elbow in. Do this for three months every day.
  • This move is called to pull in is to push out. To withdraw is to issue.
  • When you achieve this, is called Peng. Example: When you hit a drum and the two ends stretch the equalise the movement.
Yuxin Liu
  • Cloud Hands. Number two needs to be clearer. The stretch must be very large.
  • The eyes and knee must not move.
Kevin Chen
  • Example: Opening a bottle by holding the cap and twisting the bottom. Or the reverse.
  • Cloud Hands. Dantian and two knees lock, only rotate the top.
  • Example with a piece of paper. Lock the front kua and only stretch the rear kua.
Lutz Liese
  • Moves are not deep enough.
  • Your moves have to reach the four corners.
  • The outside size is when you set a limit, you have to reach it. Inside means you also have to reach it.
Pawel Muller
  • Create a feeling that you are breaking out of something, yanking something, breaking something. You need to do damage.
Sevastianos Maillis
  • Put some real effort and use power. The indication is sweat.
Felicia Fong
  • Keep the back straight.
Barb Steger
Travis Knaub
  • Do the form with a very low stance. Directions are 45 degrees and straight.
Paul Pryce
  • Shoulders and kua are not wide open enough.
  • Exercise: Use two hands to hold onto a bar and stretch the shoulders and kua.
Simon Yau
  • We have to learn with a method. And see what move causes what. When you look at people we should be able to see what they are trying to do.
Don’t ask questions / But we need to ask questions!
  • Question, assertion, discussion. We confuse these three, because they are similar.
  • What is a question? It is to lead the teacher to the topic and to ask what to do and to demonstrate.
  • Example, I don’t know what to do with my baihui, what do I do?
  • When we have a question and say, is it this or that, we have already made an assertion. When we make the assertion, we are limiting the answer to a box constrained by what we already know. The answer is often outside of the box.
  • Hong’s teaching method. Never listen to students descriptions. Only show what is correct.

Q&A Relating to baihui vertical line

  • Everything has two actions to it. First is never right or wrong. It sets the point of reference. The second action.
  • Example: Take a rubber cord with two ends (A) and (B). Where you place (A) is not important. Once you place it, it becomes a point of reference. This is the first action. The second action is to stretch (B) away from (A).
Cloud hands. The kua acts as a telescopic rod.
