Taiji Ruler System – one of my favorite exercises. Horizontal fishing in the seated position.
The Taiji Ruler is an ancient system that goes back to the Song Dynasty. The art was passed down through the generations until Chao Zhong Tao decided to teach it publicly at the age of 98 years old. He lived to be 118 years old and shared his knowledge with a handful of students. BP Chan was one of those students. This exercise is one of my favorites because it is a very easy way to sedate the body as well as balance the energy. It is based on the movement of casting out nets if you were a fisherman. There are other movements that resemble gathering the nets. This particular exercise is relatively easy to learn and to apply immediately and obtain immediate results. The details are stated in the video so I will not write them down here a second time. Often a teacher will not share their favorite exercises and will keep them to themselves. It is my goal to leave Mr. Chan’s legacy behind as he changed my life. Before the Internet , a student had to choose from the teachers that he could travel to regularly in a reasonable time. Finding a teacher who knew any of this esoteric knowledge was very difficult. When I met BP Chan I was floored by his encyclopedic knowledge of the internal Martial Arts as well as the Taoist Healing arts. I gave up my career to follow these arts because they are extremely valuable and have helped me to help other people with diseases. This is simply the most gratifying thing I have done with my life. I owe my life to these arts and I pray that I can leave them all here for the next generation. I have quite a laundry list of arts that I have been practicing together for approaching 30 years. I have quite a few details to share as I actually train these arts . I generally train for about four hours per day. I have trained and taught continuously for eight hours or more. When practitioners come from other parts of the country we tend to train for several hours at a clip before taking a break. All of the videos that you have seen recently with Aaron are a result of him coming to visit me for several days. I hope to have more visitors…
