A rare quick taijiquan post. Quick take on peng lu ji an
peng – up
an – down
lu – in toward you into nothing
ji – press, squeeze, close your partner. Kind of the “press” in basketball or soccer or other sports. Space is taken, options are closed.
Nothing mystical or mysterious. Of course there is more (including mystery) but why can’t people accept that square one already makes good sense on its own…
