Sinking can be a very big topic for becoming grounded. I just read a blog post about this and I remember when I first heard the concept of Weebles many years ago and laughing… and the Gongfu Master I was talking with said it again to me while I was laughing. The Master I was talking with wasn’t the kind of person who talked about Qi very much or at all, instead he shared his concepts with functional and practical examples of the concepts.
Here is a great post I just was reading on this very subject:
“…So in stance, in addition to getting the structure aligned, we’re also relaxing to “sink the chi” so that we find balance – Balance, relax, and structure are all interwoven in this definition – and that’s the key…”
There is a GREAT YouTube video clip on that blog as well I would suggest going over there and checking this out.
“Weebles Wobble but they don’t fall down.” This connection is one of the keys to developing internal power, functional and practical for those who are willing to take the time to understand this and develop this skill.
