Details Nazi

Got a few nice pictures here that I used to show my student what he was doing wrong and what he was doing correct.


I didn’t take the pictures when the pose had a lot of wrongs in it. These poses are after he attempted to follow the steps a few times to try to nail the principles down.

At the very least we can see in some of the photos, some more than others, the observance to the principles of balance, alignment, centralization, power structure, etc.

Why we are a stickler for details in because of our insistence on complying to the principles of Tai Chi when we practice our form. Bad form leads to bad techniques.

What we learned from this movement (Brush Knee, Twist Step) became the basis for learning how the principles adhered to properly lead to good control, position and application when we use them in the practice of push hands.
