    New frame:



    I think the spiral is pretty obvious. Tight, but obvious. Those aren't extra movements, those are the same movements "practiced out." If you do laojia and concentrate on your spirals, on making sure that your limbs don't move unless your center does, you'll eventually end up with xinjia. A few new frame people will even say that there is no distinction between frames. The postures have the same names because they are the same thing. It's just that people practice differently.

    On another note - how is the BJJ going? Is your Taiji proving at all useful?

    I've only had four BJJ lessons so of course I can say nothing definitive. I'll say that I turn in the right direction more often than the usual raw beginner when rolling, and that I already knew the takedowns drilled so far. Shuai-chiao is extremely helpful with with grips.

    True. I'm on that like a virus.

    RSpirit however has a way to go yet.

    I went to train with RS because of a lack of alive training in my taiji. It seems to be eternally just around the corner like some ghostly possibility that never quite arrives. My teacher has suggested I BaiShi which is nice but seems to be an invitation to more restriction as far as I can tell..so I have been looking around at other stuff and people to play with to see what i am missing so as to inform my decision.

    Now RS as we know is an experienced fighter so I bore that in mind as he made me look silly for an hour..well I felt silly, he was a perfect gent about it.

    As some here are aware RS practices the ChenTingHung line of Taiji ( see Cullions post above ) which is well known for its dynamic and some would say 'hard' approach to push hands etc.

    Now while RS did seem quite 'hard' ( nowt wrong with that, he wasn't tense or lacking listening skill ) I could recognise the principles he was applying and the methodology taught to use them.
    I shall be incorporating it into what I do and practicing it with my students.
    If you have learnt decent enough Taiji you need not i.m.o change to 'Wudang' style to benefit from their push hands approach..

    EDIT: The PH I do is not currently focused so much on unbalancing more on positioning for strikes, we don't limit the area of movement to a defined circle space. We have no mats and train on a hard floor. I have always felt this is a problem as unbalancing and throwing has to be done 'cooperatively' So not alive.
