Whirling Like A Dragon

“It is easier to leave a circle than to enter it. The emphasis is on the hip movement whether front or back. The difficulty is to maintain the position without shifting the centre. To analyze and understand the above situation is to do with movement and not with a stationary posture. Advancing and retreating by turning sideways in line with the shoulders, one is capable of turning like a millstone, fast or slow, as if whirling like a dragon in the clouds or sensing the approach of a fierce tiger. From this, one can learn the usage of the movement of the upper torso. Through long practice, such movement will become natural.”
