Hi, i've been reading a book I bought years ago called opening the energy gates of your body by B. K. Frantzis with a view of trying to find parrallels with ww and bodyflow.
What I have discovered probably much later than you guys is that ww is bassically taoist chikung as they follow the same principles.
The interesting thing is the terms they use e.g instead of breathing movement and allignment, the toaists use breathing, movement and awareness.
What I think is bassically that they achieve the same goal but the chikung takes it a microstep further in trying to actually feel the bones themselves, i'm guessing if they are right we must have some kind of skeletal senseory system like for joints and tissue.
The only added benefit I see here is that with this skeletal awareness comes ability to influence the electrical capacity of the bone marrow thus energising the blood cells with life force.
NO, I don't think we should all switch to chikung, the results they get take decades to achieve whereas ww benefits start from day one.
If you wanna take it further slow down the movements, close your eyes and pay acute attention to the sensation in the skeletal structure as you move.
Another interesting thing I noticed is they say during taichi push hands that when you influence your opponents allignment you disrupt their chi energy.
Makes sense as ww opens up the joints and improves gait and carriage thus allowing the circulation and accumulation energy. Then when you practise rmax concepts you work on maintaining your structure while disrupting your opponents.
My question is does anybody else have tips for improving skeletal sense?
Bit of a ramble there, hopefully it makes sense :?
