i think you are right, Xue Sheng!
it's easy to learn and to use.
taiji is more essential than qinna.most qinna techniques is aimed to lock parts of body, but taiji is aimed to lock the whole body. there is a taiji idiom:守中用中(which means defending your mid of body, knocking your opponent's mid of body ).it's different.
how do you think?
I've only trained one, San Soo, which is very much external, but this idiom is central to that art. I've heard it taught as Take away his center (and/or) Take away his balance (not always the same thing, but perhaps close enough to be useful).As to the idiom basically I believe it translates to us here in the US as "protect (or hide) your center and attack your opponents center. And that is pretty much part of all internal styles I have trained and to be honest I think it is part of all CMA styles, but that is only an opinion since I have not trained that many CMA styles.
Yes, exactly right SB. Thanks for answering this.I assume he meant Kung Fu San Soo - Jimmy Woo's style of Kung Fu - A more modern art that is very self defense oriented... One that I really enjoyed, though I only trained in it for about 6 months.
Thanks XS, I hadn't seen this particular description before. Very cogent and accurate.Xue Sheng said:
