    Watch Chen Ziqiang’s (20th generation Chen family) expression, it never changes. Watch his body, it never seems to tense up either. These, to me, are some of the most unnerving things about a good taiji person from the opponents view.

    My Yang Sifu is in his late 70s, we do some similar, but not quite as intense these days, things. He never tenses up, his expression never changes. I have a good 8 inches on him in height and I am likely close to twice his weight and he never tenses or changes his expression…and then I find myself on the ground looking up. And my sifu’s Qinna is the best I have ever come across and he never ever forces it. When I asked him how he does it his response “You lock yourself”. The relaxation and patience these guys have to wait for you to show them an opening is amazing to me.

  2. Absolutely Tim, great patience, posture, relaxation and the ability to hit the weak line, angle in your opening at just the right time. Beautiful movement above!
