10. Descriptive Language

Many concepts in traditional taijiquan are difficult to understand and describe. While maintaining a clear reference to original language used by the past masters, Sam Masich has originated many descriptive terms that are now widely used. 'Deep-sticking,' 'full-curriculum,' 'hip-track,' 'core principles,' 'open-side gazing,' 'closed-side looking,' 'movement tendency,' 'resting in and supporting,' and 'generating movement by relaxation' are phrases used in the Masich Internal Arts Method to more easily describe neijiaquan concepts.
