  • Can you find the mistakes (Open the Window to look at the Moon)?

    Good Friday, everyone!

    At least three mistakes can be found in my performance of "Open the Window to look at the Moon".



    Tell me which ones!

    Best wishes,

    Don't be shy, if it's a pattern you have not seen or practised before you can still try to find the mistakes

      Here is a photo of Sifu performing Open Window to Look at Moon:

      Here is a video of Sifu performing Taijiquan Cloud Hands in slow motion, where the pattern Open Window to Look at Moon can be found (Please ignore the background music which was being played by someone else when the video was recorded in a public park).

      Alright, this should make spotting the mistakes a lot easier!

        Another weekend, another great opportunity to learn! Thank you!

        I will start : The weight distribution is incorrect.

        What else do you see?

        Best regards,

            Dear Sidai,

            Thank you for another wonderful and helpful video.

            Can one possible mistake be that knee is too bend forward creating a high risk of knee injury?

            Thanks again for your inspiring efforts.

            With Love, Care and Shaolin Salute,

            Santi

              Hey Wahnam Family o\

              The Knee is pushing forward and is not twisting.

              It is to see that the upper body is leaning forward and didn´t stand centered.

              The Main Push ist coming from the ellebows.The Power of the Push should be come from the rotation from feet to hips to upper body and ending in the hands like the 3 harmonies.

              all the best o\

                Difficult to see precisely from this angle but:
                - Back knee seems to collapse inwards in the ready position (may just be camera positioning, of course)
                - Front foot seems to be pointing to the North (maybe also be a camera position thing)
                - Waist rotation lacking i.e. not displaying the principle of start with the back leg, control through to waist and end at the hands. This manifests in disconnection of the push and disharmony of the external 3 harmonies
                - Front knee and weight extend far too far forward
                - Elbows over-extend at end of push
