10. Seeking stillness within movement. – Dong Zhong Qiu Jing - 動中求靜 In external martial arts, power is generated by jumping, punching and kicking as hard as possible. Hence after prolonged practice, one is panting for breath and the blood vessels are enlarged. By contrast Taiji Quan emphasizes stillness over movement. Even though in motion, the form appears tranquil. Therefore when practicing, the slower the better, with long deep breathing, to allow the qi to sink to the Dan tian
9. Continuity without breakage. – Xiang Lian Bu Duan - 相連不斷 In external martial arts, the power used is only physical strength and therefore there is a start and a finish to it. In between is the break where strength from the previous move is finished and before the new force is issued, which is the weakest point and can be easily exploited by the opponent. Taiji Quan uses yi and not li, hence the movements become continuous without ending like a roaring river without ceasing.
