Circle & square

方圓

 

Circling while retreating is easy, but circling while advancing is difficult, so do not get sloppy with your waist and headtop when going forward or back.

It is hard to stay in the central position,so the ease of retreat and difficulty of advance are to be carefully studied. As this is a matter of movement rather than stance.”

退圈容易進圈難,不離腰頂後與前。所難中土不離位,退易進難仔細研。此爲動功非站定,倚身進退並比肩。能如水磨催急緩,雲龍風虎象周全。要用天盤從此覓,久而久之出天然。——太極拳法歌解之太極圈  楊澄甫

Every point contains both.

進退的過程中,每一點都包含了方圓。

Force is expressed by understanding how by rotation can be  expressed as  wave .

內勁的表現是因為了解到如何將旋轉表達成一種波動

This is done by understanding how to maintain  rotational equilibrium,  so that the sum of all the external torques acting on it equals zero.

要做到這樣需要知道如何維持旋轉平衡,亦即讓所有外加的作用力矩和為零。

Understanding the function of the square allows any point of contact to express or transmit the force at a point along the wave.

了解”方”的作用能使任何接觸點表現或是傳遞出沿著波動進行某一點的內勁

 

Understanding the function of the square allows any point of contact to express or transmit the force at a point along the wave.

taiji seeks to be spherical at every and all points about a central axis.

太極就是在尋求一個球,使每一點、所有的點都有一個中心軸

The practical applications of this are shown by “Ms. Bian Zhiqin is the 20th generation disciple of Chen-style Taiji and the 6th generation disciples of Wu-style Taiji.

In this video, Ms. Bian Zhiqin explain and show the 4 inside force of Peng, Lv, Ji, and An in taiji.”

這些原理的實際應用可由邊稚琴女士的演示看出。邊女士是陳式太極的第二十代弟子和吳式太極的第六代弟子。在這段視頻中,邊稚琴女士解釋並展示了掤、捋、擠、按的四正內勁。
