Wudang thirteen steps boxing DVD with Charles-Henri Belmonte
In their martial art tuition, Wudang Masters emphasize strongly on practising the Ji Ben Gong, the basic skills, only truly effective way to understand and feel the nature of Taiji. To understand these techniques, start with static work to build arm skill, coordination and flow to learn gently the principles of upper body movements. The hands must always move together, light as butterflies, as if one was the shadow of the other. Then begin the study of the techniques in motion.The body must be perfectly structured, alined and coordinated. The cycle of Yin/Yang, of full and empty, must be exactly followed so that the body is well relaxed and may so express all its strength in a steady way. Each techniques of the thirteen steps form needs lots of work and patience and must be repeated for a long time.
The form must be performed in different rythmes. When practising in the morning or at night, the way to express the form will change according to the moment. They say that nothing is more gentle and flexible than water, and that it moves always in a regular way. Pratising the Taiji, you must do the same : pratising slowly like the still water of a lake ; more freely, like the quiet water of a river ; but also with changing rythm like the seething water of a mountain stream. These are few exemples of rhythm to practise Taiji.
