Rotational movements are in fact protective movements. You rotate around your opponent's point of contact so that you can go over him without disturbing him.

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.

Something to keep in mind when practicing Yilu, if there is a principle to follow then that principle has to be applied in all moves.

Please comment on what principle you are currently focusing in Yilu practice

Someone asked a question in the Youtube comment of Master Chen video.

This is what I wrote back:

A: Taijiquan is structural power, from long time practice, you can find out the most efficient way to generate this power from joints relationship

Q: But how did the first founder of Taichi knew in the first place that if he started an unconventional ways with long practices he would achieved something?

how would you answer this question?
