Silk Reeling pt 4 – exploring defect
The following footage shows me working with Aaron exploring the defects of moving from position one to position three. The integration of the body can be destroyed in many ways. If a joint is out of center the entire Posture is out of center. Even the eyeballs are joints. The body must move in harmony to be powerful. When one part jumps the gun or lags behind then the entire movement becomes vague in intention. It is important to try and identify why the movement failed and to tell your partner. This is necessary for both practitioners growth. This is a mutual nurturing, Not a competition. It is obvious that I cannot intellectualize how I am stopping him before I am stopping him. Training this method over a long period of time trains the Chi which has its own intelligence. As the understanding of defect permeates the Chi it becomes difficult for your partner to move once you have bridged him and released the Chi. The Chi will seek the weak part of the structure the same way that water flows towards a hole in a vessel.
