50 forem Tchaj-ťi

 

All seven postures oriented forward or backward represent

the way the upper and lower extremities move synchronously,

with eyes kept on the leading hand.

 

Wild Horse Shakes Its Mane on Both Sides denotes the

swift technique of stepping up; Fair Lady Works at Shuttles

consists of about-turns to the right; Single Whip is used to

return qi to the Dan-tian, calming down and pacifying the

mind and heart. All seven postures have significant functions

in hand-to-hand combat.
