thank you for the translation!!! This morning started off with this big nice surprise for me
I really enjoyed reading the thread because it was explaining some turbid places in the text for me.
BTW after the first reading of Hao Yuery's text, I came to the same thought that it is too advanced material for such amateur as me. These techniques require really deep understanding and experience of using qi. I believe, this is one of the most difficult points for an amateur – how to affect opponent's jin by our qi.
On the other hand, for example, DUI (oppose) may be applied in simplify way as pre strike after the opponent's attack begins but before it gets strong (on an early stage, when it's comparatively weak). However, of course, this is not exactly that subtle originally intended meaning of the technique.
I have a couple of questions, I understand their difficulty, and would appreciate any comments.
1) " cause him to be unable to find the tiniest bit of power (li).." his LI (power) or my LI ???
2) what does actually "de2 li4 zhi1 chu4' (for "spread") mean? I saw it in Chinese texts in the net quite often but could not figure out its exact meaning?
3) " cause him to have not the slightest room for movement and be totally unable to motivate (me)." could this part of the original text also mean:
" and therefore there is no even slightest activity remain in him, so he cannot do an explosive movement." ??
Thanks All for the good posts!
