8th Annual Berlin Push Hands Camp. The 25 Energies of Taijiquan #2
Taijiquan can be expressed through various physical forms and practices, but fundamentally it is an art of ‘energies’ (jin). An important aspect of traditional Yang-style Taijiquan is the study of twenty-five energies identified in early taijiquan literature. The twenty-five energies—'sticking', 'listening', 'understanding', 'receiving', 'neutralizing', 'enticing', 'seizing', 'issuing', 'borrowing' 'opening', 'closing', 'rising', 'sinking', 'peng', 'lu', 'ji' 'an', 'cai', 'lie', 'zhou', 'kao', 'long', 'intercepting', 'drilling' and 'lofty-soaring—can be employed practically in partner connection, body movement and martial strategy studies.
Last year in the Berlin Push Hands Camp we studied the first eight of these energies. This summer we will review last year's work and continue working methodically through the next group of energies using 'sensing-hands' (jue-shou), 'four-hands' (sizheng tuishou) and 'large-rolling' (dalü) exercises as tools for exploration.
