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.

      (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
