Fist Drape Over Body
  • Kua needs to turn over (tippie toe if needed to get maximum range of the kua turning over)
  • Right hand-elbow-shoulder triangle must remain unchanged. This triangle plane must catch the opponent, like how an oar catches water one way but not the other.
  • The right elbow going up is not just lifting the elbow. It is stretching the torso so much that it flips up the elbow. Shoulder must stay downwards.
  • The right kua turns over as the right hand-elbow-shoulder triangle changes position.
  • Left kua must open, and don’t let the left knee point to the ground. This is very difficult to do, so the instructor is likely not able to show this one.
  • Central axis does not move.
  • At the very last part of the movement, there is a stretch between the right elbow and the left elbow to catch the opponent, and then we rotate on the central axis, and this rotation being inside must be bigger than the outside movement to have power.  This is an example of fajin when done quickly.

Six Sealing Four Closing
  • It has a similar catch with right forearm going down, right kua coming up.
  • If the opponent is strong, we can get him down. If he retreats, this move while going down also drives the right fist foreward. He is caught 22. He can’t be strong, he can’t be loose.

今天中文课中,我们练了怎样把胯放到手里。用了一根棍定住手、肩、胯的三角形。把胯顶到手上(或是棍的外头)。这个三角形平面中间有一个不动点,胯顶的时候是把这三角形绕着这不动点转了一下。如果对方在棍的外头堵住你,你要把这三角形转时最长、离自己最远的一点转到对方的中心,就可以把对方蹦出去。练习时,对方一定要固定住、不化你的力,才可以让你慢慢练会。
