Re: Alternative Names

I would call it a tenchinage variation. Rather than looking at technique but rather from motion for me it is therefor heaven and earth motion no matter what added name given to it due to it's variation.

Basically answered by this question....what is the motion of tenchinage? It is leading up and down at the same time, some call it leading mind in two directions (heaven and earth) and some call it opening the person up. Either way it's leading up and down at the same time and stepping through.

That's how I describe it.
