From Ming dynasty, Zhou DunYi said “Yin and Yang – TaiJi”. From Qing dynasty, Wang ZhongYue “when you witness many with years of training, yet not successful due to human flaw, the flaw lies with double heavy. To rid this problem, have to understand Yin Yang.”

陈式太极拳实用拳法有一条规矩是“进要柔,退要刚”。

    乍一看,规矩里的刚柔教人摸不着头脑。在这儿,刚柔另有所指,如果望文生义,就耽误人了。

    咱们先聊“退要刚”。洪公均生解释说,退步的时候,后脚一落地,就要稳如山岳,为此得把裆劲塌好。这儿说的“刚”,是稳固的意思。

    不少太极人都有“重进轻退”的偏向。推手较技当中,人们退的时候,往往退的角度不对,脚撤的轨迹不对,步幅不够,架子散了(结构散乱,多是裆劲没塌好所致),前头手臂上丢了劲等等。上边几条里犯了一条,就难以退...

洪公均生有言:“天衣无缝,针线泯迹。”原来只是想当然地泛泛地去理解,认为是比喻太极高人的水平毫无缺陷,对“针线泯迹”的意思也居然没有深想,只猜测是在比喻技术不为人所察觉。近日听了陈中华大师一席话,才明白这句话是有具体指向的。

我们都知道,实用拳法有“不动前边,动后边”的规矩。推手的时候,咱们的手跟对方合上以后(除了变招)手就不要动了,而要快速调节自己的肘、肩、背、胯、膝、足等,使周身的结构符合自己所采用技术的要求。这些调节包括拉开关节、肌肉和筋腱等软组织,包括腰裆的变化,也包括脚上的辗转甚至移动。天衣无缝的意思是,在以上种种调节的时候...

陈发科的背景:陈发科的家庭是真正的太极拳世家。他的曾祖父陈长兴(一七七一~一八五三),是杨式太极拳创始人杨露禅(一七九九片十八七三)的老师。杨露禅在陈长兴那里学了许多年,才学到太极拳的真功夫。陈长兴的父亲陈秉旺也是非常出名的太极拳家。陈长兴以保镖(护送货物的保镖)为业,经常来往河南、山东一带,山东的强盗对他非常害怕。晚年的时候,陈长兴在村里办武馆教学生。陈发科的祖父陈耕耘(享寿七十九岁)自幼跟陈长兴学拳,也以保镖为业,曾参加战斗立战功。有一次他保镖至山东莱州府,降服了当地的大盗田尔旺,莱州的百姓出钱立碑纪念他。

各位,久违了!博克上老没动静,十分抱歉!

    在大青山多日,住房的宽带导线有毛病,愚下的电脑智商近乎弱智,以为是没插好接触不良,怎么插也上不了网,才知道是导线的事。还是陈中华大师给我拿来一根新线,才能上网。可是又赶上事多,没法踏踏实实地写点儿东西,直到回到北京才能跟各位聊天。

    以前,咱们提过推手的时候有“长胜短”一说,今天就往开了多聊几句。

    在这儿,“长、短”指的是双方各自的发力点到作用点的距离。“长胜短”说的是,在不用其它技术而且双方用力大小相同的情况下,距...
