Thanks for addressing this query, I had long put the idea aside, but regardless, had still not discovered another reference to "Drawing water from the well" anywhere, yet.
I appreciate your response, input and confirmation.
[..."Drawing water from the well
[Other names include
['Grasping the Handle of the Hammer and Striking the Gong,'
['Step (up), Parry and Punch.'
<<The 'Drawing the Water from the Well' part would be between 'Grasping the Handle of the Hammer...' part which is making a fist, and before 'Striking the Gong,' part. Once the fist is made, it makes a circular movement down then up to the left like dunking a bucket into water, and pulling it out.>>DavidJ
Very interesting information.
It certainly creates excellent imagery for intentional development purposes.
I do enjoy the way the Chinese expression seems to flourish in vivid striking imagery.
<<It denotes gathering chi.>>DavidJ
This agrees with my logic perfectly, David, thanks.
Also, perhaps addressing a player knowledgable in Chinese, I am curious as to the meaning, if any, of the name "Huizong" from the Emperor Huizong of the Song Dynasty in the 12th century. How would this name be translated?...Tiger/something?
