This is part of a video series of the Feb. 2020 Chen Zhonghua Sydney, Australia Practical Method Seminar. You can buy the whole series of more than 66 videos if you like this one. If you like, you can buy the entire series as a discounted package. The videos are publish one a day. But when you buy the package, you will get all the videos at once.
This has to come out, otherwise see, watch me. You look at here and here. This is not coming out. You want this to come out. No, see, you moved here. No move, only here. Now you can go. Do a lot of that until this increases in its range of motion. See right now, see, your range of motion is way bigger here than here.
Your shoulders still too big. Because the size is big, any movement on it is a big move. See, you are all moving here. Limit it, no, no limit it, don’t move here, only move here. It’s difficult. Exercise was designed to get you used to move the kua. So now you are back to. Yeah. Here, no move. You can exaggerate, can you see it comes out of kua. We want to exercise that, but the kua cannot do that. It goes into a line.
So can you put your head on the floor? Now, maybe not your head, your eyes on the floor? And go there. Look here. Look here. This has to. I was joking. But if you do that, that’s fine. You see there. So i go a little bit easier on you. You see that line? So we are all doing this. We destroy the line. The line stays there and there’s something outside of the line, it comes into the line. Makes the line longer.
And this is number one problem. Number two is, you try here, you went. You lost the line. The line stays, it can stretch, and it can compress, can you see the line is shorter? Now, the line is longer. The line became longer because this wedge is making it longer. It’s not because you do this.
So this is the basis. The basic action of our powering system. Our powering system only has two, yin and yang. And the yin yang are, the dotted line that does not exist. So our body is made up of. Uh. Math teachers and mechanical engineers, you can go home and count how many we have on the body. In taiji wisdom, we say thirty six.
You see one. One and one, there’s a missing line. That’s this one here. This one happens to be the other way. And i do this is because i was heavily influenced as a kid by the pyramid. So now i see everything as a pyramid. On the body is this way. And if you always think of this here, you have lived all your life in a valley. Oh, that’s a powerful.
Now, there are two moves, both with this one locked, with this one moving along this trajectory. Fixed on it, like a train on rail. This one is totally mobile, as if it has freedom, but it has absolutely no freedom. Because the curvature of this one is the arch. Because these are all hard rods. They don’t bend. When you push this down, this one stretches, it goes actually sideways.
But the cut, slice, what’s the, like you cut a slice off? What do you call it? Cross section is a straight line, in motion is not, it becomes the curve. The taiji movements are these movements, they don’t exist, they are actions. Action means, see, while i walked, that trajectory there is real, but it does not exist. That’s called emptiness. It does not mean it’s not there. It means my body is still here. My body was here. My body is here in between is the yin. It’s real, but we call that empty.
So this one does not exist, but when you move it, it exists. So now, when you push this here, this is totally locked, this one allows this move, but you increase friction. Same as in the, with the exercise machine, you put fifty pounds of friction here, when you push, you need a fifty one pounds to move it. And your training comes out of this here.
So when you push it, this goes out. This is called power. This is yang energy. When this goes flat. This is called flat. If it is totally flat, you cannot see where it is anymore. And now, this is fixed. And this is on a rail. And this is the chinese hook. And when you pull this up, this goes back to this here.
So when you push it down, this is yang energy. You pull it up, this comes back to that shape, is the yin energy. There are only these two movements in taiji. No other movements. All other movements are created by this. So if you touch here is extremely strong, you touch here. It’s strong, but it keeps sliding. But it does not do this.
And as you do that here, can you see, as you do this here, it does not do this. But this here, there is a rod, and the rod also is real. But is a function. As you do that here, can you see it moved. But there’s no movement like that. So because of this and this, and this, you have three-hundred-degree range. And we call that freedom. We do not allow any of the freedoms like this. So now you see here totally lined up.
Now i want this to go out. You see this here. So this is the elbow, and this is the alignment. It could be, in our case here, this is your shoulder. In this case here, the shoulder is called the root, the part that does not move is the root. The part that is flexible is dantian. Whenever it functions as the pivot, that’s flexible. Has a range is called the dantian.
And this part that follows this here, when you move like this, it goes like this here. This is the magic bullet. And the bullet does not move. Its propelled. And the bullet has one thing, is a dead piece of lead. And the powder is inside here, and it’s activated by this, is the trigger. The dantian is the biggest trigger. This is a trigger. These are all triggers.
And so when you load up. Move until you feel, got it. And all you need to do is lock here onto this here so there’s a lot of reinforcement. It does not move. And you pull this up, it goes like that. And you, when you pull your opponent, you go like this. He comes in. This is all.
So this one here on the average, you can do like my size, seventy pounds, one hundred pounds, no problem. Heavier with muscle, one here. Now you enlarge the size to the foot, to here, to the hand. No elbow, no elbow, no shoulder. This is gone. It’s here, and only here.
Now still too strong for this one. Is here. Can you see here here here? Three stages. And after this one, your opponents still too strong, too strong, you pray. I mean, it’s, there is no magic. It’s all mechanical. There’s only so much you can do. You know, it is like sometimes this is your limit, and i say pray, it means i pray you make a mistake.
You pray your opponent makes mistake. Real fighting is training specifically, very very methodically. In reality, you never need one percent. Because your opponent makes millions of mistakes, and when he makes a mistake, you only need this. Most of the time he is falling by himself. And that will come with experience.
你看到一个。一个一个，有条线。这 这个。这个 是另一个方向。我这样做是因为我小时候受到金字塔的影响颇深。所以现在我把一切都看成金字塔。在身体上 这样。如果你一直在这里想到这一点，那么你一生都生活在山谷中。哦，有点震撼。
现在，有两个动作，两个动作都是这个被锁定，这个动作沿着该移动。像 上的火车一样 在上面。这是完全可移动的，好像它有自由，但绝对没有自由。因为这一弯是拱形的。因为这些都是硬杆。他们不能弯。当你往下压这里时，这个会拉 ，实际上会往边上走。
但是切，薄片，像切成薄片一样，是什么？叫什么？横截面是一条直线，在运动中不是，它成为曲线。太极动作这些动作，它们不存在，是动作。动作是指，当我走路时，那里的 是真实的，但并不存在。那 空。这并不意味着它不存在。这意味着我的身体还在这里。我的身体之前在这里。我的身体在这，中间是阴。是真实的，但是我们称其为空。
当你按下它时，这个出来了。这所谓的力量。这是阳。当这一切变平时。这称为平。如果它是完全平的，则无法再看到它的 。现在，这里是 的。这是在 上。这是中国的钩子。当拉起它时，这个回到这里。
当将其按下时，这阳。你把它拉起来，回到原来的形状， 阴。太极拳只有这两个动作。没有其他动作。所有其他运动都由此 。如果你动这里非常强，你动这里。它很坚固，但它一直在滑动。但是它不会这样做。
现在我要这个出去。在这里看到这个。这是肘，这。在这个例子里，这是肩膀。在这种情况下，肩膀称为根部， 的部分称为根部。灵活的部分是 。只要它充当 ，是灵活的。有个（活动）范围就叫做 。
在此之后的这一部分，当你像这样动时，它也会像这里一样。这是神奇的子弹。而且子弹。它是被推动的。而子弹有一个特点， 一块死铅。粉末就在这里里面，并且被这个激活，这是扳机。 是最大的扳机。这是一个扳机。这些都是扳机。
当你装满时。动动直到感觉，好了。你所需要做的将其锁定在此处，所以十分牢固。它 。然后把它拉上来，它就像那样。然后，当你拉对手时，你像这样走。他就进来。这 全部。
