T’ai Chi Ch’uan Quote

Posted in martial arts at 11:15 am by Jerry

First seek extension, then contraction;
then it can be fine and subtle.

It is said if the opponent does not move, then I do not move.
At the opponent’s slightest move, I move first.”

To withdraw is then to release,
to release it is necessary to withdraw.

In discontinuity there is still continuity.

-by Wu Yu-hsiang (Wu Yuxian) (1812 – 1880) sometimes attributed to Wang Chung-yueh as researched by Lee N. Scheele
