I don’t know if it’s accurate, but I tried my best to record all I’ve heard and saw in the two-day workshop.
- Change “一” shape structure to ” V ” shape to get a 3D structure
- If there’s a V shape structure with ABC points as joints. A Taiji movement would be:
A as a hinge. It doesn’t move at all, but able to rotate.
B as a connection between two arms. Its track will not change because A and C are restricted. And will move towards the different direction of A.
C as the only free moving part. But its track must be pre-defined before it moves, and need to be related to A.
Master Chen’s disciple Ping Wei recently wrote an article regarding how to rotate the Kua and create a stable center (pivot point). The idea is simple: the center will never be stable if you try to control it by only one Kua, you have to have good control of both Kua, and move them both at the same time.
Such a simple idea doesn’t take a genius to understand. So that I read the article, got the idea, and I thought I got it.
