  1. Uncle, I have a question? In my Taiji which is a pure dao form of taiji, there are many words/ characters that are difficult to translate. For example 三清 and 三青? 三清 I can find, daoist trinity, but for 三青 I cannot find anything. So I asked his son (16 years old) and he also had trouble interpreting this . But what I understood was this :三青, is in this Taiji is; the function of the form/practice is to aid in the removal of impure chi down into the earth, replaced with pure chi from the sky ? Al.

    1. The term 三青 seems to be related to plant metabolism. I’ve never encountered it before, so it’s probably a special term of your particular school. Many types of Taijiquan seek to purify the Qi by connecting with the larger Universe & circulating Qi through the body to “wash away” blockages & impure Qi. That seems to be the case here.

  2. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who had been conducting a little research on this.
    And he actually bought me breakfast due to the fact that I found it for him…
    lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending time to talk about this topic here on your internet site.
