It’s pushing each other with each one’s best and twsiting, pulling, lifting keeping my structure not broken against his power from any direction QJZ… the word still makes me laugh Let’s use another name Isn’t this called LiuMianLi( six direction’s force )? Eu… a little different This is included in LML but It can not be called LML itself If I have trained LiuMianLi I can use this as test of LML like DanTuiShou( Single Push hands ) what we just did Then is this closer to WaiSanHe( External 3 harmony )? Yes, basic WSH( E3H ) making a structure Yes, I can say this is WSH of not moving state They say LiuHe( 6H ) with WaiSanHe and NeiSanHe( internal 3H ) But I quit using those words 3~4 years ago because it restricts me by the theory Even I am high level master, I can’t be ready all the time My WSH(E3H) can be broken like this Push harder But I can stand even with this broken structure Then can you say my E3H is bad or broken? It’s hard to say Why I can stand with this bad structure against power if we go on talking about this we need to deal with so much things so I will talk about this next time Shake me just as you did I should be ready for forces of many direction but I don’t know which direction he will go I can stand so easily against him who is lighter than me but if he shake me, I cannot stand It’s hard to stand even big difference of weight Then what can I do? there is a solution for performers but also for real practitioners who train this It’s lke TKD masters can split their legs or Bottle Cap Challenges just one of performance he can do even if you are a champion of Bottle Cap Challenge, it’s nothing if you can’t kick your opponent in a sparring So what we talk about from now on is in wrestling or MMA grappling situations they grab the opponent and shake hard But a good players don’t be moved no matter how their opponents try to shake hard Actually they are moving but their opponents feel a kind of pressure they are so heavy, not moving Now we will introduce what and how they do I think there are 2 way to do like that First way is I read direction of his moving and change my structure to follow the direction as soon as possible Second one is what we called ‘Unbendable arm’ in Aiki style martial arts push to bend my arm but my body can move free without any structure just with my arm not bended Keeping my arm not bended but other parts are free so I can attack him I can say it’s a kind of neutralization of power I can make his power break up or make him just hang on my arm He cannot reach over the arm So I can move rest of my body free I think of these 2 ways in Aiki style What about Chinese martial arts? Very similar, most of all We use the expression “dissolving” the opponent’s power with my arm Again in this situation I can stand again just pushing but if he comes shaking It’s very hard to keep standing What is the solution? Most Chinese martial artists know or use this actually but just don’t figure out a specipic concept Oh, it became different It’s just turning the direction of power first from me I have turned the direction already so my opponent cannot catch the direction where to go I already get an advantage and he doesn’t know his body going to wrong direction There are many ways to dissolve the power Most popular thing is elbow control what I just showed If you were a practitioner of wrestling, Jiujitsu or Judo you would figure out what I did as soon as saw Another way is to contact with palms to palms Now contact point is very clear and small (yes, it’s focusing on the palm) So it’s very easy to shake I can break up his power and you can see this single leg standing here in comparison to other kind of QJZ demonstrations this is easier for me to control the leverage so my legs work less Or I can break his power with hands up to change the angle of his hands far from his body it makes his leverage weak and unstable I’m not saying they are fraud showing this kind of demo Why you should train changing the leverage, controling elbow, taking with body Practitioners have to know the reason and purpose There is another demonstration, lift me up I watched this on FaceBook a few days ago It looks like another QJZ demonstration But this is not same at all to what we talked about so far That is making my structure first, and trying to test if I can stand and even control the opponent keeping the structure against any power from outside but this has nothing of the training There is no purpose of training my structure What this demonstration shows is very simple trick I can stop his arm just putting my hands on his elbow So this is not dealing with the structure of performer, but breaking the opponent’s structure already Yes, stopping the power of his structure Actually it’s closer to make bad structure for him at first It may give you an understanding of tactical usage but cannot be used as a training Making a structure and using a power from it if we call it ZhengJing( energy sorting ), isn’t this a kind of FaJing( energy absorbing )?
