Online class notes with Master Chen Dec 14, 2020

General corrections

  • In general, moves are not deep enough, too loose. Don’t feel the bottom.
  • Not stretched out enough. Yin-yang distinction and stability comes from having that bottom.
  • Torso must feel the floor.
  • Not enough intention of power. e.g. Punch covering hand needs that extra stretch at the end to finish it.

Power moves – six sealing four closing

  • Horizontal egg: Power up in with elbow until you hit your ribs. Rotate, don’t lose the line / move your hand. The body/shoulder gets under the hand. Go out straight, along the top of the egg (don’t go out with the hand under the shoulder).
  • Vertical egg: More vertical than horizontal. Then two hands push out from the top down.
  • Digging analogy: Like scooping up water with a spoon. Put the spoon in water. Turn it to pick up the water. Lift. The rotation is like carving out a scoop of jello.
