Feeling Peng

Tonight we practiced with our new students in the beginning class an exercise I call “feeling peng.”  One persons stands in a peng posture such as ward off left and another pushes on the first person’s wrist.   It occurred to me that I should blog about it, but on second thought a video would work much better, so I will put that on my list of projects.  The “feeling peng” exercise is very enlightening when it comes to appreciating the thought the ancient masters put into developing Taijiquan.  A slight deviation from the correct posture results in a very perceptible weakening of the peng structure, and the difference can be felt by both the person in peng and the person pushing on the wrist.
