CZQ on the 13 postures of Tai Ji Quan

At a recent push hands workshop in Chicago, Chen Zi Qiang said this.

Of the 13 postures of Taijiquan – Peng Lu Ji An, Cai Lei Zhou Cao, Jing Tui Zhou You Pan Gu, Ding

Peng and Ding are the most important. He said the first is Peng, the last is Ding. The rest is in between. If you cannot get the beginning and ending right, it is hard to do the rest in the middle. Well said.
