TAI-CHI CHUAN STRATEGY Author: Su Dongchen
Thorough research of foundation returns Tai-Chi to its origin.
Master Su’s Tai-Chi Chuan Method was first introduced to our readers and
students of Japanese Bushido in the June issue. His words affected a wide
range of readers.
This section introduced a subject that is universal for martial arts practitioners: the “Fist.” The idea of a fist is a fundamental concept to those entering martial arts. We now pursue anew the essence of Tai-Chi Chuan.

A long-range Direct attack is dealt with using small motion.
High density defeats speed.
A “point” cannot defeat a “plane.”
Middle-range Indirect capture method: medium motion (total body power) is dealt with using the “Crossing” capture method.
Practice of crossing method: A stepping method with relative balance.
Close range Throwing and joint-locking techniques are handled with the spiral/controlling method.

(2) Medium motion VS Middle distance [Crossing-capture method]
(3) Large motion VS Close distance [Grapple-control method]
(II) Pair-training method [Simulation]
(1) Crossing method = defense method
(2) Attacking method = capture method
(3) Grapple method = control method
(III) Power Testing [Proof]
(1) Physics method ? Dynamics
(2) Striking method ? Transfer
