The word climbing here refers to the action of finding a solid grip for the foot, stretch the body against the feet till the hand/hands find another solid spot to hold on to, and then pull the body up with the hand till the feet find another solid spot.

All taiji movements in a segmented view is like this (in a smooth way and in a changed direction it is viewed as rotations). This type of movements are called stretching moves.

Two-way stretch is a special Practical Method way of stretching.

In Practical Method, we say there are no movements, only rotations.
Rotation creates movements. This is the fundamental basis of everything in Practical Method.
In practice, rotation can cause two things. One is when rotation is too slow, it causes the body to collapse inward, thus losing power. The other is more positive. At the right speed, a rotation will create centrifugal force that is in taiji viewed as Peng.

In Practical Method, we say there are no movements, only rotations.
Rotation creates movements. This is the fundamental basis of everything in Practical Method.
There are two general way to rotate. One is to hold the outer rim of the circle/ball and rotate it. The second is in the case of a set of gears that bit into one another. You can initiate a rotation from the biting teeth to cause the two gears to rotate evenly. This is a high level action.
In this video, Master Chen Zhonghua demonstrated how to rotate the torso and the Dang (crotch area that includes the thight and the waist) from the kua line.

In Practical Method, we say there are no movements, only rotations.
Rotation creates movements. This is the fundamental basis of everything in Practical Method.
We normally just push energy from the shoulder to the hand, causing a lot of disconnect while doing so.
In this video, Master Chen Zhonghua shows how to use a rotational/pumping method to push energy from the shoulder to the hand via the elbow.
This is one of the most common actions in Taiji that one must learn and training in order to make it a habitual move.

In Practical Method, we say there are no movements, only rotations.
Rotation creates movements. This is the fundamental basis of everything in Practical Method.
If you want further movements and variations of movements, you need to link two rotational body parts, thus a set of simple gears.
In this video, Master Chen Zhonghua the arm-chest gear. In this gear set, the arm moves as one rotational disk and chest another. They bit at the shoulder/armpit point.
This is the upper gear that is used for catching and holding.

At the beginning level, we seek large movements to encourage flow of energy in the form. Later on as we progress, we shift to an application drive approach to training. At this point, our movements can contain twisting and bending. This, in effect, restricts energy flow. It becomes a problem to be dealt with.
In this mini video, Master Chen Zhonghua gives his approach to solving this problem.

To get into the taiji mode, you must first accept some (strange) taiji concepts.

We all know that taiji comes from Wuji. Taiji is the result of Wuji splitting into two. And then two is further developed into three. This is the basic Heaven (wuji), earth (taiji) and man (everthing else).

We can use a basic lever to illustrate this.

When you push one end of the lever down, the other end moves up.

The original lever set is wuji before you use it.

When you push one end down, you are splitting the lever rod into two because the pivot in the middle is a demarcation.

Although this splits into two, the two sides of the lever are not the same. They still are the same as there still is only one lever rod.

So in the instance of the lever set, we have zero, one, two and three and yet we consider all of them as the same.

Confused? Get the video to hear how Master Chen Zhonghua explains this.

After training for a long time, the body becomes quite even. Almost everything has reached a level that measurements are automatically proportional. At this point, when you make a move, you need to stretch a bit to ensure that your movement is larger than the target of your movement.
For example, you want to put a ring on a hook. Your body will just miss it as the ring distance will just match the distance from the hook.
So when making the move, you stretch a bit to make your ring just land on the hook.

At this point you will look like every time you move you are stretching something. This something usually is your elbow, armpit, kua and knees.

A basic Practical Method rule for movements is that all movements must be converted, i.e. vertical movements must be converted into horizontal movements, horizontal movements must be converted into vertical movements, etc. In the same way, active movements must be converted into passive movements.

When you can make this conversion both ways and you will be able to have the vertical while making horizontal movements and vice versa. At that point your body have these two conversions happening at the same time. We call that a cross. It is an indication that you have the spiral on you.

A basic Practical Method rule for movements is that all movements must be centered on the Dantian, controlled by the Dantian, and initiated fromo the Dantian. For beginners, this is too much so it is only something to keep in mind. You don't have to do all of that yet.

For now just tried to see that there is an allowed distance between all parts of the body with the Dantian. Think of the Dantian as the Sun of our solar system. All other planets and satellites must be orbiting the Sun. Too close or too far would cause disaster!

Try to see this point by observing Master Chen Zhonghua's body and his movements!
