Three parts in ball bearing: outer ring, inner ring and the balls in between we consider as one part.

Taiji is three.

Three steps: 1. Different parts of the body are strong, hard and stiff, which able to combine and recombine into pieces which have the same quality, like the rings and the balls. 2. Establish relationship or connection between different pieces through joints, like the balls seamlessly in between the two rings (through separator and tracks on the rings), engine oil is the joints. 3.

Lean with Back (背折靠)

Right fist and rear kua line up.
Elbow as a handle goes around that line.
Shoulder goes down to the kua.
Kua comes up to the shoulder.

The two lines must be maintained, and they must interact with each other.

The freer the rest of the body with those two lines maintained, the more power there is.

The Art of Asking a Question

by Kelvin Ho on 2020/11/16

How Question Mark Shows Not Sure And Asking

Master Chen Zhonghua always talks about the method of learning.  The interaction of us asking and him answering is part of it. You have probably heard him say before, “Don’t ask that question”, but yet at a different time, he would ask students to ask questions. What kind of questions are indeed proper to ask?  The questions that are on topic, something that does not interrupt or distract the learning of the very subject at the time.  The format of an appropriate question itself should be about HOW, e.g. Could you please show me that move again?

This type of questions allows Master Chen to provide the correct information.

Lock the right elbow-shoulder-kua triangle, but place it horizontally.

Rotate to the right horizontally using the kuas.

First make the line between the right elbow and left foot. The left foot is supported by the floor.

Later make the line between the right elbow and left knee, but we need to keep the knee up (i.e. the left knee cannot point to the floor).

As we rotate to the right, the right elbow and left knee must continue to expan

In taijiquan, there is a term that cause a lot of confusion. It is “Don’t use force”.

What this really says is that in taijiquan movements, we don’t use direct power, instead, we use indirect power. Or in other words, the point of contact cannot issue power. Power comes from another place that reaches the point of contact. This means the point of contact only has passive power.

Neigong refers to the internal energy. It is the part of Taiji that is difficult to teach, to learn and to explain.

In this mini lesson, Master Chen Zhonghua tries to teach the most basic elements of Neigong training. He focuses on three basic physical ways of attaining internal strength. 1. Create compressed power. 2. Create twisting power. 3. Create rotational power while maintaining compression and twisting power.

The Tile Hand is a specialty of the Chen Style Taijiquan Practical Method system. However, the index finger and the middle finger are the two most prominent fingers in the yin and yang of things.

In this mini lesson, Master Chen Zhonghua focuses his teachings on the direction and function of the index finger.

One of the basic foundations of the Chen Style Taijiquan Practical Method system is to treat the entire forearm, from the elbow to the finger tips as one piece. This piece is the basic building block for most of the upper body actions. In this mini instructional video, Master Chen Zhonghua shows how to do a spiral with the forearm as one piece. This seemingly simple act, will fundamentally change the way you use your body!

Implosion

  • Line up the dot underneath the front buttock and front heel, and pull them together.
    The dantian needs to adjust to allow the rear foot to be pulled up.
    Lock the head.

New Exercise

  • This is an exercise that Master Chen Zhonghua learned from Grandmaster Hong. They did it at the park on the gravel. After this, they would do foundations every morning.
  • Lie on the stomach, use the hands to pull up.
  • Lie on the stomach, use the elbows to pull up.
  • Lie on the stomach, use the shoulders to pull up.
  • Only use one part to pull up, the rest of the body is just like sandbag being dragged.
  • Need 3 ways to do the same looking move to be versatile, so the opponent can’t figure it out.

Wind up the clock. Lock one end to create spiral. 1.use body strength 2.body has the shape/structure of half pipe or spiral.

Fist Drape Over Body
  • Kua needs to turn over (tippie toe if needed to get maximum range of the kua turning over)
  • Right hand-elbow-shoulder triangle must remain unchanged. This triangle plane must catch the opponent, like how an oar catches water one way but not the other.
  • The right elbow going up is not just lifting the elbow. It is stretching the torso so much that it flips up the elbow. Shoulder must stay downwards.
  • The right kua turns over as the right hand-elbow-shoulder triangle changes position.
  • Left kua must open, and don’t let the left knee point to the ground. This is very difficult to do, so the instructor is likely not able to show this one.
  • Central axis does not move.
  • At the very last part of the movement, there is a stretch between the right elbow and the left elbow to catch the opponent, and then we rotate on the central axis, and this rotation being inside must be bigger than the outside movement to have power.  This is an example of fajin when done quickly.

Back to the kua-to-hand exercise.

  1. Lock the hand, shoulder and kua as a triangle, which is a fixed plane.
  2. We fixed a dot on the plane, and we rotate on the dot without changing the plane itself.
  3. We put this dot just under the elbow.
  4. Kua becomes (就是) the hand. When the opponent touches our hand, it is the same as touching our kua. Ultimately, the opponent is touching the floor.
This plane is something that we maintain during push hands. When we have it, we can move this plane however we want.  The plane itself is double heavy, but if we can make it a revolving door, it is not double heavy anymore. The axis can be put anywhere on the plane or through the plane (a dot on the plane).
Fist of Lifting and Blocking
  1. Elbow does not move.
  2. Rotate the shoulder to cause the fist to change the direction.

First 13 moves of the 24-form.
This demonstration focused on showing the internal movement of the form. Breathing is heavy to demonstrate how it works with body movements.
Overall, this is not how a person trains. It is an exaggerated demonstration.

In Practical Method, horizontal moves must be seen. Feeling and thinking you have horizontal size is not enough. It must be real!

Verical moves, however, are the opposite. By nature, vertical moves don’t create horizontal size and therefore no visible to the human eye. Whenever vertical moves are seen, it indicates there is horizontal movement involved and therefore it is an error.

In both cases, a point of reference with a physical object is the best way.
