Yilu count:3460


I’m humbly posting here my practice.
3 month into the online classes with Master chen and I feel that finally, maybe? some small shift is happening….
please feel free to criticise
Yilu Count: 2863.

I still have some same general mistakes from last month record.

Self correction:
– My head is a bit forward, not suspended enough. Center line is not strong.
– A few places, when doing the stretch, lost the non-moving points.
– First Cloud hands, when out with hand, shoulders popped.
– Single whip, R toes should close more.
– Turning flower at the bottom of the sea, I leaned, lost the axis.

Some mistakes I recognize by myself.

In general,
1. Fingers and wrists need to be stretched more. Keep tile hand especially my L hand. Sometimes the wrists are bent.
2. Some moves I looked down and lost the position of the head.
3. Not enough KUA.
4. Some of the circles, hand turned by itself.

Some details,
1. First form on the turn, my L hand went up. I have never noticed this until today. Checked some of my old videos and I have been doing this probably since day one. L mid finger supposed to be at the same dot, still in line with the center of chest.
2. Form 13 when turning to the right, my body popped up.
3. Form 17 punch downwards, didn’t lock the elbow, overextended.
4. Form 35 Punch to the ground. My torso leaned forward.
5. Shaking pole three times. Lost the direction of the left fingers. Hand was moving up and down. Daoshou.
6. Fall into split and Step up to ride the whale. Kua did not switch first/enough. Still led by the shoulders.

From Master Chen,
Lower cloud hands is horizontal stepping.

Thank you Master!

This is the first recording of Wang Kai’s routine practice in this manner. This video showed the second phase of the Chen Style Taijiquan Practical Method training. The first phase moves the outside (two hands, two feet and center/head). This is done by locked int inside centerline (with head on top). The first phase makes the movements look open and big. Every part of the body is stretched. The second phase locks the stretched out outside and only moves the inside.
