戚建海老師:趙堡太極拳、背絲扣

拳架:



講解背絲扣:


The above video is Mr. Qi Jianhai explaining his understanding of Beisikou. It is a concept proposed by Master Du Yuanhua in his book Taijiquan Zhengzong (Authentic Taichi). Mr. Qi also points out the diagrams of Beisikou are like twisted (bei) ribons (si) joined and cliped (kou) at the position representing Dantian.

Bei in Chinese means "back", or "against".
Si "threads", or "silk".
Kou "clip".

Translation:

"My understanding of Beisikou begins with Yunshou (aka wave hands like clouds). Yunshou is one of the center pieces of Zhaobao TaiChi. For example, in Daili frame (One stream of Zhaobao Taichi. The movements are bigger compared with other streams) we execute Yunshou as such (begin demonstration). As your right hand reaches (your) left (side of body), it becomes "Bei". "Wobeirenshun" (I am at the Bei, as the opponent is at Shun, this situation is called "Beisi." As Yunshou moves to this point, the end of Beisi, Chansi begins. Yunshou is Beisi combined with Chansi. In a fight, Yunshou applies Beisi, Chansi, then Kou. Kou is attack."

"The way I execute Yemafenzong (aka wild horse part his maine) follows the diagram of TaiChi, also Beisi, Chansi, Kou. Except that I am executing Kou with the other hand."
