Closing and Opening the Joints

Closing – From the tips of the extremities into Dan Tien.
Opening – From Dan Tien out to the tips of the extremities.

This exercise entails simultaneously closing and opening the joints in each posture adhering the law of the six harmonies. First work through the single basic coordinations one at a time. Let’s use Brush Knee as an example. On the first repetition only concentrate on shoulder-hip connection, the second pass, elbow and knee and so forth.

Next, work on the multiple combinations such as elbows-knees and ankles-wrists. Finally combine everything together in a single movement linking sequence.

More later.
