We can also understand the use of the kua by using a spear.
When we don’t have an actual spear we can use a mental spear.
In Grandmaster Wei’s Tai Chi the movement of Fair Lady Works at Shuttles is embedded with the movements of the long spear.
In this video I demonstrate what the actual spear movements look like with a short pole since I don’t have room to move a long spear.
Then I show the same movements using Fair Lady Works at Shuttles from which the spear movements are taken from.
