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.

Turning Flower over from the Sea Bottom

Today, there is a big breakthrough.
The shoulders finally find the kuas in this movement. It was very possibly due to the exercise taught on Mar 30, 2021:

  • Use the kua to push the hand out. Shoulder, kua and elbow are one piece. The hand stretches against the shoulder. This is a very practical push hand move.

REMEMBER THE PROCEDURE that gets me here, but DON’T FOLLOW THE FEELING.

Fist of Hitting and Lifting

The flip from one side to another needs to happen because of torso going down. More precisely, the two shoulder-to-kua axes go up and down against the central non-moving axis. Read more

Train the scissors as an ability/skill. Two way split, in both elbow and armpit, 2 dots. In use or push hands, it is paper cut model, with one side being fixed, like an opponent holding you and you cannot move. Like the crab pincers.

Train the elbow. Thread through the needle, push into pull. Pass the demarcation line/dot. We always move after going through the hole. Before that, it is a push. Elbow has to pass the line, go over.

Chen Zhonghua’s disciple Sun Yang in black pushes hands in a friendly manner with the fourth place winner of Shandong Provincial wrestling competition. The person in white is a professional wrestler from the Shandong University of Sports.

Fist of Lifting and Blocking 搬拦肘

  1. Lock the two elbows as if they are on a table
  2. The two fists only go up to go around. They also have to stretch against the two elbows. Imagine that you have a wall parallel to the chest right in front.
Generally,
  1. The kuas control the rotation on the central vertical axis.
  2. The knees control the height of the body/torso.
  3. The elbow control the horizontal movement.

Common mistake in push hands:

  1. Shoulder tends to come up and have power (wrong).
  2. Kua tends to go down and not have power (wrong). Read more

Lock the arms, torso goes down. Lock the torso, pull down the arms. Now there is power.

This is increasing distance. This is switching. This is rotation.

3 beats. Cloud hands. When it is 3, the middle is stable and not affected, 2 is swollen but time is taken.

Stepping in six sealing four closing, avoid double heavy, arms go vertical and stepping is horizontal.

Dantian fits tight in a pipe with a lot of tension, no slack/tossing/large protrusion. Example: fist draping over body. The torso is switching inside a pipe, you have to turn over the joints. Foot and oppo arm stretch, the arm is rotating in the shape/frame. Forearm no move can only rotate in a pipe, twist the waist to create the stretch. To twist, you have to lock and move the rest, to create the helix. No twist, no power. It is the yin yang separation. And we continue to create tension on top of the other without releasing/losing any, until the jar explodes. Fundamental moves are a circle.
