The 25 Energies of Taijiquan, Berlin
8th Annual Berlin Push Hands Camp. The 25 Energies of Taijiquan #1
Taijiquan can be expressed through various physical forms and practices, but fundamentally it is an art of ‘energies’ (jin). An important aspect of traditional Yang-style Taijiquan is the study of twenty-five energies identified in early taijiquan literature. The twenty-five energies—'sticking', 'listening', 'understanding', 'receiving', 'neutralizing', 'enticing', 'seizing', 'issuing', 'borrowing' 'opening', 'closing', 'rising', 'sinking', 'peng', 'lu', 'ji' 'an', 'cai', 'lie', 'zhou', 'kao', 'long', 'intercepting', 'drilling' and 'lofty-soaring—can be employed practically in partner connection, body movement and martial strategy studies.
In the last seven years, the Berlin Push Hands Camp has focused on the push-hands curriculum of Yang-style Taijiquan. Over the next few years we will work methodically through the 'Twenty-five Intrinsic Energies' using 'sensing-hands' (jue-shou), 'four-hands' (sizheng tuishou) and 'large-rolling' (dalu) exercises.
