A somewhat partial translation of talk


'Preparatory movement' of the Taiji Form, Australia 2022

Preparatory movement (Following Opening the stance)

Straighten the legs slightly to lift the lower-body, breathe in to lift the upper-body, allow the arms to float forward and up to shoulder height.

2) Release the Mind and the body, bend the legs, breathe out, relax the shoulders, drop the elbows, draw in the wrists as if the palms are sliding over an iron ball.

3) Continue to sink the body, drop the wrists as if sliding down behind the iron ball until the elbows reach the side of the body.

4) Stabilise the body, drop the forearms until the thumbs touch the legs.
