Inch is the stepping. Treading is in the legs. Drilling is in the body. Approaching is binding the body. Upper & Lower bind & become one. Pressing is Scissoring, both legs move like scissors. Coordinating is the Inner & Outer Six Coordinates. The External Three Coordinates are the hands & feet coordinate, the shoulders & hips coordinate, & the elbows & knees coordinate. The Internal Three Coordinates are the Xin & Yi coordinate, the Yi & Qi coordinate, & the Qi & Li coordinate. The Inner & Outer like One is Completing the Six Coordinates. Sickness is poison. Square is straight. It looks Square, nevertheless it’s Slanted, it looks Slanted, nevertheless it’s Square. Passing is the hands rub in performing the Five Phases. Shin is suddenly jolting the Four Tips. Fire the mechanism with a single emission & the thing will surely fall. Rub when passing, rub the shins with the intent of making the Qi repeatedly echo. Rising is Going, Falling is Striking. Rising is Striking, Falling is also Striking. Rise & Fall like boiling water, that is the method for Rising & Falling. Advance & Retreat, Advance Step low, Retreat Step high, it is a waste of study to misunderstand Advance & Retreat. What are Yin & Yang? Look at Yin, & there is Yang, look at Yang, & there is Yin. When the Yin & Yang of Heaven & Earth mutually combine, they have the ability to produce rain. When the Yin & Yang of Boxing Skill mutually combine, the have the ability to succeed in one shot. This is called the Qi of Yin & Yang. The Five Phases, if the Internal Five Phases move, the External Five Phases must follow. Movement & Stillness, Stillness is the source, Movement is the effect, like words that quiet, not yet revealing the intention, like words that stir emotions, not yet leaving a trace. Following the Interval of Emitting & Not Emitting is called Movement & Stillness. Emptiness is the Essence. Fullness is the Spirit. Essential Spirit succeeding in all cases is Emptiness & Fullness.
Essence nurturing Spirit (Ling) follows Qi nurturing Spirit (Shen), nurture the Gongfu & nurture the Dao to see Heaven’s Truth;
Nurturing the Dantian is to approach the Jewel of Longevity, I wouldn’t give it to someone else for Ten thousand taels of gold.
From time immemorial Liu He has had a unique transmission, how many have been unsubtle during the interval,
If rashly transmitted to an unrighteous person, you’ve beckoned calamity & incited misfortune to shorten your lifespan.
Martial Skills entire Dao lacks True Classics, the random variations of momentum are endless,
How do you know a baby comprehends play? This is the true form of the World’s Striking Method.
Heaven is a Big Heaven, people are a Small Heaven. A falling wall is easily pushed, but if Heaven collapsed it would be most difficult to support. Rain sprinkles dust & dirt clean, the cold wind follows & clouds return. Bear Exits its Cave, Tiger Leaves the Woods, Stiff Beng Pluck the Green beans, plow below the nape of the neck. If to some extent you desire to go, the Tiger closes is dynamic, which to some extent leads to taking. The power upfront is not superior, the power at a distance is not superior. Know the far, know the near, know the old, know the young, know the wide, know the narrow, Above & Below are Mutually Linked. If the Xin moves & the body does not then it is in vain, if the body moves & the Xin does not it is also in vain. A battle may resemble a pitiful ghost, Dodging, Extending, Moving, & Shifting, the bottom of the feet follow clearly, simply grasp the power, if strikes come you also regard it as a good martial skill. Perhaps you’ll be asked: Which skill will you use first? Reply saying: Its Moving Pattern is like a stick bug, its Rising Pattern is like lifting a shoulder pole, like encountering people a lot, Three Swings & Two Whirls; in my training field there is no fixed execution, perhaps holding & perhaps boxing. Looking at maneuvers is exactly the same, follow high strike high, follow Low strike low, strike everywhere in the world, just like an old chicken.
