Tai Chi Symbol—Yin/Yang Sticking Hands
Silk Reeling - The Essence of Taiji
The ancient art of Silk Reeling Jin in Chen style Taijiquan is also known as Taiji Yin/Yang Symbol Sticking Hands in Yang style Taiji. The main purpose of this soft and flowing training is to ‘connect’ the body, from head to toe, so that you may coordinate your movements effectively:
"Once in motion, the entire body must be light [Qing] and agile [Ling], it especially should be threaded together. The root is at the feet, Jin, or movement is generated from the legs, mastered [controlled] by the waist and manifested [expressed] from the fingers. From the feet to the legs to the waist must be integrated, and one unified Qi." - (Taijiquan Classic)
From this Yang-side and Yin-side training, a practitioner will establish a firm foundation for understanding the martial aspects of Taijiquan practice. This program offers many solo and partner exercises and drills that you may easily follow along with, making self-instruction simple.
The Yang side and Yin side of the training are demonstrated separately, each divided into five parts:
- Self Practice of the Taiji Yin-Yang Pattern
- Stationary Partner Training
- Moving Partner Training
- Parallel Stepping Training
- Bagua Circle Stepping Training
Features senior YMAA students Ramel Rones and Kathy Yang. This program and the Taiji Pushing Hands DVDs (YMAA) will help you develop a proficient level of taijiquan practice.
