Stillness leads to Motion & the whole body moves, the Qi leads & the Blood follows like a dragon & tiger rushing. The waist then is the seat of the banner & the Xin is the Commander, hook the knees & sit, the stance is not quite “Ba,” or “Ding.”
In Fixed Pattern Half Fish Walking the Seven Stars, the Qi sinks to the Dantian & the Spirit passes through the crown. The buttocks hang, lift the Grain Path, the eyes look through the Tiger’s Mouth.
