It is Chen's opinion that a large obstacle to a calm, healthy, present existence is the constant interruption of our natural breathing patterns. A thought or ringing phone or honking car interrupts an out-breath and so we stop and begin to inhale. Then we have another thought and stop before exhaling. The result is shallow breathing and deficient flushing of carbon dioxide from our systems, so our cells never have as much pure oxygen as they could. Tai Chi meditation is, among other things, a haven of unimpaired oxygenation.
He needs time to internalize the new skills before he will improve.
It is essential to have a liberating incremental approach that allows for times when you are not in a peak performance state.
Great ones are willing to get burned time and again as they sharpen their swords in the fire. a willingness to put himeself on the line as a way of life. He was willing to look bad on the road to basketball immortality.
in the pursuit of excellence, the theme is depth over breadth. The learning principle is to plunge into the detailed mystery of the micro in order to understand what makes the macro tick. Our obstacle is that we live in an attentino-deficit culture. When nothing exciting is going on, we might get bored, distracted, separated from the moment. So we look for new entertainment, surf channels, flip through magazines. Nothing is learned at a high level and what results are form collectors with fancy kicks and twirls that have absolutely no martial value.
When through painstaking refinement of a small movement I had the improved feeling, I could translate it onto other parts of the form, and suddenly everything would start flowing at a higher level. The key was to recognize that the principles making one simple technique tick were the same fundamentals that fueled the whole expansive system of Tai Chi Chuan.
Once I experienced these principles, I could apply them to complex positions because they were in my mental framework. soaking its principles into my skin. (要想精进需要极大量的练习，让其融入血液）
There was no margin for idealized fanciness. Things happened too quickly.
The next step of my growth would involve making my existing repertoire more potent.
touch the essence of a technique, and then to incrementally condense the external manifestation of the technique whle keeping true to its essence. Over time expansiveness decreases while potency increases. I call this method "Making Smaller Circles".
When throwing my right, I don't think about anything technical anymore, my body just knows the right feeling and does it. No mind. It's in the blood.
They have condensed large circles into very small ones, and made their skills virtually invisible to the untrained eye. （不断精进）
The secret behind this style of play is a profound internalization of the principles behind central domination. Michael Adams knows how to control the center without appearing to have anything to do with the center. He has made the circles so small, even Grandmasters cannot see them.
Subtle internalization and refinement is much more important than the quantity of what is learned. I had condensed my body mechanics into a potent state, while most of my opponents had large, eleganct, and relatively impractical repertoires. The fact is that when there is intense competition, those who succeed have slightly more honed skills than the rest. It is rarely a mysterious technique that drives us to the top, but rather a profound mastery of what may well be a basic skill set. Depth beats breadth any day of the week, because it opens a channel for the intangible, unconscious, creative components of our hidden potential.
