Single Whip Coordination

Last week I was teaching my student how to do Single Whip properly, particularly the last bit of the movement which calls for the whole body to turn in a particular manner to generate circular and spiral power.

Below is the illustration from my eBook “TaijiKinesis Vol 2 : Learning the Taijiquan Form” demonstrating the point I made :-


To generate the power requires precise coordination involving moving the arms, waist and legs to turn as a unified whole.

You can check if your movement is correct by getting a training partner to give you pressure to test your power generation.
