[Grandmaster Chu Training Episodes #008]
This footage goes in tandem with #007. It can be viewed as an extension of #007, employing the same way of kicking for stepping. That same way, reiterated here, is: the tailbone slides in, the back of the hip slides down, the thigh bone goes in the hip area.
In the footage, the way of stepping is illustrated in the Detecting Hand-bridge (Chum Kiu) context. In this regard, the articulation of the upper and lower parts of the body is of utmost importance, enabling the body’s (weight) momentum to fuel the power of the limbs at the same time. This returns to the work done by sliding in the tailbone.
