Re: Taiji - some rather fine diagrams.

Oh, I wasn't aware of that.

Indeed I think they very well done and express a lot of experience. I myself read a lot of books about qi gong /taiji quan and relatet stuff. So I am used to things being explained by such drawings. And also I did not find some controversial stuff in those drawings but only basics.

So not realizing that there had been discussions about similar drawnings in the past, I wondered what your question was about.
Come on. You've been around long enough. You don't remember Mike Sigman's lines that were drawn over Tohei that wasn't actually Tohei, or Eric Mead's advanced engineering diagrams, or any of Chris Hein's representations of alignment? None of which had the artistic detail of the drawings that were the subject of this thread.

Really, I'm not requesting further discussion. Just wondering why it didn't occur.
