The theory has a sequence of different stages. In practice, the sequence is often opposite of how it is described in theory.

The stages of Practical Method learning is 1, open the kua (joints), 2, rotate, 3, don't move.

When we learn and practice, we must first find an external locked spot (don't move), and then we can rotate. The end result of this will be the opening of the kua (joints).

In Practical Method, Two-dimension means you are locked into a stiff track and are rendered immobile. Three-dimension gives you the full range of motion.
This works both ways. You want to lock your opponent into a two-dimensional frame so that you can manipulate him. At the same time, if a particular part of your body needs to be locked and stable, you can lock it into a two-dimensional frame to your own benefit.

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.
