Pushing Palm

This posture is the Holding the Moon Posture, but your palms face outward.

By twisting the arms, you are engaging the muscles along their entire length and encouraging interactions with supporting muscles in the torso. You can imagine that a large ball is pushing against you, and you are resisting with your palms.

Stand on the edge of the circle in the Wuji Posture. Start in the Lowering Palm Posture, then raise your palms to shoulder height.

Pushing Palm Posture

This posture can cause your shoulders and head to rise. Try to relax and remember the alignments of Wuji Posture. Your shoulders should remain back, not rounded forward, and the crown of your head should feel as if it is being pulled up by a string, causing your chin to tuck in and down.

Walk as before, and change direction with the Simple Change while maintaining the upper body posture.

Thank you for recognizing my creative efforts. I moderate all comments and will not tolerate nonsense.

Internal Power Set

I developed this set from a line in a Taijiquan classic text that says: “Power is generated by the feet, transferred through the legs, directed by the waist, and transmitted through the arms to the hands.”

Back Kick

Sitting disassociates the connection between the legs and the torso. The Back Kick is a powerful reminder that our legs need the torso to function well.
