Needle in cotten

As is often said of someones arms or body who practices taiji meaning they are soft but there is a hardness with it,.This would be at odds with the training and ideas one will be working with this taiji style.

The way  it’s expressed on this style,  the needle (mind)  in cotton (body)

the practice helps to make the mind intent like steel or diamond like in focus, the body becomes soft, pliable and resilient  like the tall  bamboo  growing in the forest.
