Following the palm changes in single hand push hands

The palms do not change or mature by themselves. They change because the torso has rotated or the weight has shifted. When a person changes the palm prematurely, they create an opening for attack on themselves. One must consider the principle of ” no hollows and no protuberances” when one is studying palm change. When the palm changes prematurely , it creates a hollow or collapse in the structure that can be attacked easily. When the palm changes by degree with the rotation of the waist and the weight shift it does not give up the same kind of vulnerabilities and it actually acts as a shield. Any contrived energies created by your opponent can be followed and used to your advantage against them. When advancing in this fashion, my body can neutralize forces along the way to connecting to my opponent. Defense and offense become one in the same. ” if you miss by an inch, you miss by 10,000 miles”
