Balance test in Zhan Zhuang (站樁)

Recommended Posts

Hi, rideforever
Thank you for your safely concern. Yes, you are very correct. It is better to do ZZ on flat ground. Why does one need an apparatus anyway?

If you read the title of the OP, it says "balance test" rather than a practice. Since it is a test, don't you think a special apparatus should be used for an ultimate test with a higher degree of difficulty. Don't you think this practitioner had any training or confidence to perform the balance test. Do you think any average person can just hop on the narrow platform and stood there for a 6 minute video demo?
 

 

Ah, semantics: the fire escape of a bad argument.

 

You were caught attempting to say that the balancing on a board itself was Zhan Zhuang. Then throughout the thread, everyone pointed out how it was not, as did your succeeding posts showing you don't know what it is. 

 

It is also not that hard of a "test" given that as Starjumper, someone your age group, can do far more balancing than that as he himself implied in his responses earlier here. 

 

You have no training to speak of based on your history of claiming superiority for reading Chinese and being Chinese, but the fact you have no TCM background or formal training in what Zhan Zhuang is, you're only digging yourself into a hole.

I did do it as posted earlier! :D our OP so far hasn’t responded to anything we say for whatever reason he has, though i suspect that it’s because he has neither Zhan Zhuang skill from zero knowledge whatsoever nor does he actually have any balance based on a far more difficult test you’ve shared!

Done... After two 7% craft IPAs (one of which is called "Hipsters Don't Drink IPA" :D).

 

Easy... If you know from whence the head rotation should emanate.

 

Forget that for even a second... And indeed you will start to tilt like that tower in Italy that the ancients made in prescient anticipation of Instagram.

 

Kinda sad I don't get to do any spanking, though.

 

Wait a second, I have a solution... 

 

GOVERNESS, COME HITHER!

You got some competition - but their Sabre form isn't very good.

I wish I have four legs too; but I only have three.
