Lessons 1 and 2 taught us to relax and align the body so that the thighs do the work and the rest of the body is balanced like a scale. In lesson 3 we learn to adjust the fulcrum of the lever for superior balance, agility, and power. We also learn one of the least understood components of tai chi power generation.
Ward Off Left and Ward Off Right Peng, Pivot, and Pelvis Power.
This lesson introduces a method, of effortless power, which is often overlooked or misunderstood.
We take the structure and alignment taught in lesson one, and the principles of engagement learned in lesson two, and apply them to rotating movements which involve the left hip, right hip, and waist, individually and together.
