Re: Taiji - some rather fine diagrams.

Well it doesn't appear to be doing too badly on r/aikido.

Such clear, concise explanation of body mechanics and physical principles that are common to taiji and aikido is very new to me. Quite often, I have had to rely on complex, imprecise instructions. These diagrams, shorn of a lot of the cultural trappings (Japanese or Chinese) are easier to understand, and should be widely disseminated.

They may be old hat to those more experienced, I don't know. To relative and actual beginners, however, they will come in much more useful than a long-winded explanation, or outright dissembling.
