Sam Tam’s basic yielding in Taiji

Sam Tam’s yielding is exceptionally smooth and precise!

The circle and the square
Always abide by your center to maintain central equilibrium! Do not not run away and do not resist! Catch your parters central equilibrium and his whole form is helplessly clued to your circle – and you can do as you wish! The secret is the understanding of the Taiji symbol. Yin adheres to yang – and does not separate from it! Yang sticks to yin – and yang does not separate from it!  When yin and yang do not move they unite and return to wuji – the infinite potential of emptiness.

That which shrinks Must first expand

That which shrinks
Must first expand.
That which fails
Must first be strong.
That which is cast down
Must first be raised.
Before receiving
There must be giving.
This is called perception of the nature of things.
Soft and weak overcome hard and strong.

Fish cannot leave deep waters,
And a country’s weapons should not be displayed.
