Basic Taijiquan Training — Stance Training

“Zhang zhuang”, or stance training, is the single most widely used method to develop internal force in kungfu, including Taijiquan. Many students, however, pay only lip-service to stance training, not understanding or appreciating its importance.

In this video clip, Sifu Wong explains to course participants at a regional Taijiquan class in Costa Rica in February 2005 how to move from a Horse-Riding Stance (using the poise called “Carrying the Cosmos”) to a Bow-Arrow Stance, paying careful attention to principles like “differentiating yin-yang” and “moving from the waist”.
