揽雀尾 01:
以脊髓骨为轴心,上身正直向右转腰使右前臂在身子右
侧指向西方。右手肘部顺手臂的直线方向略微下移。同
时转动右手小臂使手掌由向左转为向下;

在维持左肘位置不变,以左前臂为轴使手掌由向右转为
向上。左手指始终置于右手腕的中心。手臂与胸之间保
留略大于一拳的间距。

注意在转动时,保持双腿稳定。上身不能前俯或后仰。

这是上一个动
作琵琶势的完
成状态。这组
揽雀尾拳照
中,红衣是由
正南面拍的,
而兰衣是由西
南角度拍的。
揽雀尾 02:
双肘保持静止,以脊髓骨为轴心,上身正直,向左
转腰直至左前臂指向西方。双肘不作任何移动。双
腿保持稳定。

转腰的同时,旋转左手前臂使手掌由面上翻转为向
下。旋转右手前臂,使手掌由面下翻转为向上。左
手指仍然轻置于右手腕的中心。

上身在转腰时不可前俯后仰。
       揽雀尾 03:

上身保持静止,籍伸直左腿使
Hd-S-Hp-K-Hl 连成一直线。 与此
同时,右腿由直而曲,形成弓步。左右腿动作要协调,使整个运
动过程中保持胯关节(Hp) 高度不变。注意最终右膝不得超过
右足尖,感到重心落在右足中后部即可。

在左腿伸直的最后时刻,以足根为支点,Hp-A,为轴向内转动左
足使双足并行。左肘沿左前臂方向略微上移使右手指与鼻同高。
揽雀尾 4:
在维持双腿稳定的情况下,向右转腰,使右手前臂指向西方。在
转动时,左右手在维持高度不变的条件下,以右前臂为轴将右手
掌由面上转向面下。而以左前臂为轴,将左手掌由面下转向面
上。左手指仍然处于右手腕的中心部位。

注意在转腰时,左膝不能随之右移,甚至左膝可略带向左扭转之
意,这样有利于开胯。结合后腰的扩张与收臀,可以使腰胯之间
稳固有力。
          揽雀尾 05:
右腿由曲而直,左腿由直而曲相互协调控制,保持胯关节在整个过程中保持同样的高
度。初始由右脚掌支地使右腿伸直推动身体重心后移,待等右腿伸直后则身体主要靠左
大腿肌肉收缩,及鼓后腰收臀用两胯后收之劲使全身重心着落于左脚的脚根与脚掌左
侧,并由左足指抓地维持整体平衡。
右足尖尽量翘起,使两大腿保持平行,即两膝同高,且没有前后之差,并且如起势一样
相互籍开胯而保持一定的间距。
开胯、收臀、鼓后腰是后坐时单腿负重,维持平衡的关键。右足虽然不负力,但仍需有
扎地之意。此时,上身脊髓骨要正直。双手随右肘沿右前臂方向略微下移。最终体态基
本上与揽雀尾 01:时相同。
 (4)(26)(68) 揽雀尾——
Grasping the bird's tail
    注意

整个揽雀尾过程中,双臂除在(1)、
(3)、(5)的阶段略有沿前臂方向的位移
外,只有前手臂随腰的转动而作旋转运
动,双臂与上身之间实际上并没有相对的
位移。尽量减少手臂的运动是方架的一个
重要特点。养成这一习惯,在推手与搏击
时会减少好用手臂蛮力的恶习,而达到轻
灵的效果。

手臂随腰胯灵活旋转,而不作无用的位移
又是方架在搏击中快速化解攻击的关键之
一。

保证上身的中正,善于利用腰胯的转动来
保持单腿平衡则是所有太极套路的共同要


  Attention :

-With exception of Step (1),(3)
(5) when both arms have to move
slightly to follow the direction
of the forearms, both arms do not
change their positions against
the body during the whole process
of Grasping the Bird's Tail. Only
the forearms follow the turning
of the waist to rotate. Reducing
the movement of the arms as much
as possible is an important
feature of the Square Form. When
this is becoming a custom, it
will reduce the bad habit of
using the rough force of the arms
and can achieve the result of
agileness when doing push-hand
and sparring.


-The arms being able to follow
the waist and hip to turn swiftly
and not to move pointlessly is
also one of the essentials in the
application of the Angular Form
to quickly neutralize incoming
attack during sparring. Keeping
the body upright and good at
using the turning of the waist
and hip to maintain the balance
of a single leg stance are the
common key requirements of all
Taiji forms.

                                  Grasping the bird' s tail  01

-With the spine as axis and the upper body in upright position, turn with the waist to the right till the right forearm
pointing west near the right side of the body. The right elbow is slight moving downward following the direction of the
forearm. At the same time, turn the right forearm making the right palm from facing left to facing down.

-Keep the left elbow still. With the left forearm as axis turn the left palm from facing right to facing up. The left-hand
fingers remain touching the center part of the right hand wrist. Leave a fist of distance between the arms and the body.

-Play attention that when turning the body, keep both legs stable. The upper body should not lean forward or
backward.
                                          Grasping the bird's tail 02
-Keep both elbows still. With the spine as axis and the upper body in upright position, turn the waist to the left till the
left forearm pointing west. Both elbows do not make any move and both feet remain stable.

-In turning the waist, rotate the left forearm making the left palm from facing up to facing down. Turn the right forearm
at the same time, making the right palm from facing down to facing up. The left hand fingers are still slightly placed
upon the middle of the right hand wrist.

-The upper body should not lean forward or backward when it makes the turn through the waist.
                                           Grasping the bird‘s tail 03
-The upper body remain still. By stretching the left leg, connect point Hd-S-Hp-K-Hl into a straight line. At the same
time, the right leg bend forward forming a bow step. Coordinate the movement of both legs and ensure that the hip
joints (Hp) are at the same height during the entire process. Also play attention that the front of the right knee is not
beyond the right toes. The proper position is having the feeling that the center of gravity is falling to the later part of
the right foot.

-When the left leg is finally strengthen, with the heel as the supporting point and the line of Hp and A as axis , turn the
left foot inward making both feet in parallel steps.

By moving the left elbow slightly upward along the direction of the left forearm, the right hand fingers are at nose level.
                    Grasping the bird's tail 04
-Keeping both legs steady, turn right by the waist and move the right forearm to face west. When making the turn,
keep both hands in the same height. By using the right forearm as axis, rotate the right palm from facing up to facing
own .Also with the left forearm as axis , rotate the left palm from facing down to facing up. The left hand fingers are still
placed in the middle of the right hand wrist.

-Do take note that when making the turn, the left knee should not follow to move to the right. Instead, the left knee can
somewhat having the sense of turning left. This will facilitate the opening of the hip. Compiling convex of the lower
back and tighten of the buttock, it will make the area between the hip and the waist vigorously stable.
                                             Grasping the bird's tail 05
-With coordination and control, stretch the bended right leg and bend the straightened left leg. Keep the hip joints at
the same height during this whole process. At the beginning, the center of gravity of the body is moving backward by
stretching the right leg with the right foot stepping on the ground. When the right leg is straighten, the center of the
gravity of the body is rest on the left heel and the left side of the left foot. This is made possible by combining the
vigor of contracting the muscle of the left leg, convex the lower back, tightening the buttock and withdrawing both hip
joints backward. And the left foot toes grasp the ground to maintain the whole balance.

-The right toes point up as much as possible. Keep both legs balance with both knees at the same height without
divergence between front and behind. Same as the Commencement Form, keep the knees in hip’s width apart by
opening the hip .

- When the body weight is supported solely by the rear leg in a bended position,opening the hip, tighten the buttock
and convex the lower back are the crucial points to maintain balance. Even though the right leg does not provide any
weight support, it should have the sense of taking root to the ground. At this time, keep the upper spine straight.
Both hands follow the right elbow moving slightly downward along the direction of the right forearm. The final posture
is essentially the same as the starting posture of Grasping the Bird’s Tail 01.

牛连元转授之杨氏九诀   

披从侧方入,闪展全无空。
担化对方力,搓磨试其功。
歉含力蓄使,粘沾不离宗。
随进随退走,拘意莫放松。
拿闭敌血脉,扳挽顺势封。
软非用拙力,掤臂要园撑。
搂进园活力,摧坚戳敌峰。
掩护敌猛入,撮点致命攻。
坠走牵挽势,继续勿失空。
挤他虚实现,摊开即成功
    十三势歌

十三总势莫轻视,命意源头在腰隙。
变转虚实须留意,气遍身躯不稍滞。
静中触动动犹静,因敌变化示神奇。
势势存心揆用意,得来不觉费功夫。
刻刻留心在腰间,腹内松静气腾然。
尾闾中正神贯顶,满身轻利顶头悬。
仔细留心向推求,屈伸开合听自由。
入门引路须口授,功夫无息法自修。
若言体用何为准?意气君来骨肉臣。
详推用意终何在?益寿延年不老春。
歌兮歌兮百四十,字字真切义无遗。
若不向此推求去,枉费功夫贻叹息。
