Feng - Wind The Feng Po Ideogram

Our Chinese boxing style is known as Feng Shou 风手, meaning 'Hand of the Wind', and this has its connection with the Earl of the Wind' whose name was Feng Po. Now in Chinese mythology he is depicted as a very old man with a long flowing white beard, who stands on the green grass of the Heavens' highest pinnacle, dressed in a yellow cloak and wearing a red and blue hat. In his hands he holds the open end of a cotton sack, and wherever he points the mouth of the sack, so the wind blows in that direction.
Thus from his exalted position in the heavens he can turn a full circle, and send the winds unhindered across the whole world. If he moves slowly then the wind from the sack will hardly move, so it will feel like the gentleness of a morning breeze, but if he becomes angry or is surprised then he may turn very fast, and the wind will hurtle across the universe to become and create the devastation of a tornado. So don't upset him by becoming aggressive for the one thing he really hates is violence.
No matter what force he may use at any time, you will never see it, although you will see the results of it or its after-effects...(read more...)

T'ai Chi Dance

Chee Soo describes the T'ai Chi dance in The Chinese Art of T'ai Chi Ch'uan chapter 9:

T'ai Chi Dance (Tiào wǔ 跳舞, also known as 'flying hands' Fēi shǒu 飞手) is not a dance as most Westerners would imagine it. It is not normally performed to music but it can be. Unlike T'ai Chi Sword which is based on the 'order of the universe' and the phenomena within it, T'ai Chi Dance has its foundations in the Five Elements and Li energy, the general directions of the flow of these, and their respective colours. Foot, leg and body movements, balance and graceful flow take first priority in T'ai Chi Dance. Concentration on the complete harmony of movement is absolutely essential if the subtlety of the postures and stances are to be achieved correctly. T'ai Chi Dance is a beautiful tapestry of motion, gentle in its flow, graceful in its execution, and creating an air of complete tranquillity. Motion and stillness are a wonderful balance to each other. There is also a complete 'form' of T'ai Chi Dance, but it is the baby of all the 'forms' that we do, for it is only about 400 years old.

4. Dragon Stance
(Lung Shih)
Step directly forward one pace with your right foot, and once the foot comes in contact with the floor place 80% of your body weight on to it. Bend your right knee, but keep your left leg straight. At the same time as you step, move your hands forward and outward in an arc, rotating on your elbows, and keep the palms of both hands uppermost, with the fingers pointing directly forward. The right hand should be one hand's length ahead of your left hand, and both arms roughly parallel to the floor.
