Avoid tossing. One way is to do moves as if you are fighting and use power in it. Going over in the joints makes the noise of gedeng(咯噔),two metal with rubber on it.
Avoid injuries in the joints. Whenever issue power, it is a stretch, not a squeeze/compress. The only compression is the hand to the opponent and the foot to the floor, others only stretch. Like the spring or a shaft. Damage will happen because it is leaking sideways or there is no consistency. Example: the Japanese sword made with seven pieces welted together. Each part has its specialized cutting skill ie. how and what kind of material to cut. The joints work the same way. Each bone has different functions. The joints need open up to issue power, which may cause compression in other joints. Taiji has specific crooked body positions. The eight techniques: four cardinals and four diagonals. The four diagonals are not on the same plane but three dimensional crossed on different angles in space, which is what we train. It is crooked. Like when you cut veggies, and there is a type that you have to adjust the knife into different angles all the time to cut. The diagonals are the corners/45 degrees in application, power goes to the joints and it is crooked. You train the twist, in use it is a flow, but causing the opponents’ joints to be crooked.

It should be obvious that the teacher can see. To feel what going down means. When the kids fight, how do they go down? Read more

Go over. If the body is not separated, you cannot lock one part, and therefore there is no going over. When it is linked, it is not going over. Trunk is one piece, like an iron board. You can go over with your actual joints. Or anything that is straight, you can create a joint/pivot, a spot in space outside the body.To go over/climb over or open the door.
