11. The Five Words of Self-composure
The words ‘breath,’ ‘calm,’ ‘centre,’ ‘root,’ ‘energy’ are used universally in taijiquan but only in the Masich Internal Arts Method are these used in this specific sequence following a precise theory. Use of the ‘5 words’ can help practitioners to identify and correct dysfunctions that inhibit freedom of movement and expression. The 5 Section Taijiquan ‘internal practice’ (neigong 內功) called ‘The Five Words of Self Composure Five Section Brocade,’ (Wuci Tairan Wuduanjin 五詞 泰然五段緞), also known as 'The Five Words Brocade,' is built around the five-words concept.
