Taiji Day 300: Fix Hips

When one’s legs are bent at the right angle, so that the knees are no farther forward than the imaginary line rising at a right angle from the toes on the floor, the thigh muscles and buttocks engage to lock the hips in place.  When this is arranged satisfactorily, it becomes possible to twist at the waist during the turns and punches of the qi gong movements, and the tai chi form.  The result is a stronger movement, and the development of a greater internal strength.

I’ve been hugely distracted this morning in terms of writing; part of the reason is that it’s my first day back at school after the longest vacation of the school year, which has had me traveling all over.  Have a great day, and the start of a glorious new year.
