    23rdwave - how do you use feeling and emotion in your art and your applications?

    Yiquan is translated as "mind boxing" or "mind fist" but it really means "mindful boxing" or "awareness boxing". So awareness is of upmost importance. We hold onto our zhuangtai (mind/body state) which is what I was referencing with the "capture the feeling and hold onto it" statement. Have awareness in our fingertips and hold the bao throughout the body. Embrace everywhere; hands, fingers, tiger's mouth, wrists, elbows, legs, torso, etc.

    One should have a soft focus. I keep my eyes on my opponent but I pay attention to myself, to what's going on inside me. As my hands go up my body goes down and vice versa but I don't move. I'm like a building. The elevator goes up and down but I barely move. Big movements become small movements. What's on the outside is repeated on the inside until what's on the outside is no longer needed.
