“Once the movement has commenced,

The whole body must be light and sensitive.

Above all it must be coordinated.

Let the breath be expanded freely,

The spirit inwardly absorbed

Don’t let there be deficient places,

Don’t let there be protruding or caved- in places,

Don’t let there be disconnected places.”

Wu Yuxiang  (1812 80)
