Hands & feet - dynamic interplay

Our taijiquan requires interplay between the feet during a taijiquan movement. Consider moving within a bow stance: You shift the weight from the rear leg into the lead. The rear foot pushes and the lead foot uses the ball of the foot actively as pressure is fed into the foot - this is called 'sending and receiving'. The pressure bounces back slightly to create a waving action between the legs.
