Another “double weighting” discussion

Over the years of studying Taijiquan I’ve come across many interesting conversations discussing what “double weighting” is and which style truly trains against it. These type of talks sometimes disintegrate into my style is better your style arguments. Most decidedly against any taiji principle that I am aware of. Admittedly, I’ve have learned something valuable from each of these discussions. The following two articles are no exception. “The true cause of double weighting” and “Controversy over stance in tai chi”. These articles are written by a person studying the Wu Style. This style has some very interesting and nice practices which should be incorporated into any students repertoire. Please read these articles and apply them to your practice to discover for yourself if these training and posture techniques work for you. For me the true test of a technique is if it helps you walk the walk better!
