We don't allow movements in Practical Method. We only allow rotations and moves that are essentially rotations (partial rotations, etc.), such as stretches.

Master Chen uses this video to teach how to do a simple rotational move without overall bodily movements.

Every move has two parts to it. One is do get ready and the other is to act. Then we repeat this, like the counting of 1,2, 1, 2, 1, 2.
Students will not be able to distinguish the order of the sequence and do 2, 1, 2, 1.
Because when you don't see the starting point, the rest will not show the order of movements.

Taiji is about curvatures and straight lines. A curvature refers to rotational moves that can create power. A straight line is the power produced and to be delivered to the opponents. All these are very vague to understand, let alone doing it.
Master Chen Zhonghua uses a rack and pinion set to explain this phenomenon.

The hand must be fixed on the target and will never move off. The rest of the body must make their way via curvatures to aim at the hand. The elbow is the first to do so. If you know how to deliver power from the elbow to your hand, you can do the rest.
Master Chen Zhonghua shows how to do this.

First you have to have a true rotation. Why are we saying this? Because the human body is not designed to rotate. So you cannot assume you can rotate. We also need to know that while you rotate, you must step forward to gain advantage over your opponent.
This simple exercise that Master Chen Zhonghua shows will give you that bit of special power.
