0:00:00.000,0:00:03.912
要去體會重力跟你的關係。
You need to feel and understand the relationship between you and the gravity.

0:00:04.251,0:00:05.229
這個手出。
Lift your arms.

0:00:06.384,0:00:10.321
我這個手要打他啊,我當然這邊一沉嘛。啪。
If I am going to attack him, of course, I will hit from this side.

0:00:11.765,0:00:13.486
起來了是不是這樣子?起來。
Isn’t (my arm) lifted up? Up.

0:00:13.665,0:00:16.226
他攔,他攔住了。
He stopped me.

0:00:16.495,0:00:18.250
那我接下來要怎麼用呢?
What should I do next?

0:00:18.300,0:00:22.713
我要接下來要怎麼,怎麼用這個重力?
How can I take advantage of the gravity?

0:00:24.116,0:00:29.791
第一個我還沉,我還沉的時候,這邊還沉的時候,力量上來了。
First, when I lower this part, I have force.

0:00:30.000,0:00:34.264
第二個,比方講,我的重力要利用到前面來,
Second, for example, I want the gravity to move towards the front,

0:00:34.802,0:00:37.236
所以我把這個起來,你看我這個起來。
so I lift this up.

0:00:38.650,0:00:40.882
重力是不是到前面了?
Isn’t the gravity moved to the front?

0:00:41.240,0:00:44.209
所以我當我這樣的時候,我要用到前面的時候,
So, when I do this,

0:00:44.209,0:00:46.657
我的重力一起來,就是這個。
the gravity is used and goes to the front.

0:00:47.035,0:00:50.383
這個我打他不是我,不是我,不是我打的哦。
It was not me that hit him.

0:00:50.781,0:00:53.163
而是我的形態調整到什麼?
What did my status change into?

0:00:53.422,0:00:56.000
調整到我可以利用那個重力。
I adjust my status and then I can take advantage of the gravity.

0:00:56.000,0:01:00.440
你看我這個手下去是重力的力下去。
See, when my arm goes down, it is driven by the gravity.

0:01:00.440,0:01:01.319
滑進來的?
Slip inside?

0:01:01.319,0:01:06.824
對,它是它那樣,而不是,我不是我這個用力打。
Yes. It’s like that, and instead, I didn’t exert my force to hit.

0:01:06.824,0:01:08.963
我用力打他絕對有反應。
If I hit with strong force, he would react.

0:01:08.963,0:01:11.799
他會查察覺到,有反應。
He will notice and react.

0:01:12.396,0:01:17.323
可是我是形態,我改變的是形態,利用重力的形態變了。
However, what I change is the status, the way I make use of the gravity.

0:01:20.519,0:01:21.149
這樣有沒有懂?
Do you understand?

0:01:23.304,0:01:24.493
所以其實是什麼?
What actually is it?

0:01:24.493,0:01:29.022
另外那個重力永遠都在嘛,而且方向永遠是那個方向。
The gravity always exists with the same direction.

0:01:29.580,0:01:34.924
所以我們在做的是什麼?我們在做的只是調整自己。
So, what are we doing? What we do is just to adjust ourselves.

0:01:35.253,0:01:43.614
我是調整自己,調整自己,調整自己怎麼去用那個重力。
I adjust myself to make use of the gravity.

0:01:46.601,0:01:47.877
我們在做的是這個。
What we are doing is this.

0:01:51.260,0:01:51.905
這樣有沒有懂?
Do you understand?

0:01:54.245,0:01:56.000
這個才是學問。
This is the knowledge.

0:01:57.916,0:01:58.717
曉得嗎?
Understand?

0:01:59.344,0:02:02.751
每一個關節你都可以去用重力。
Every joint can comply with the gravity.

0:02:03.100,0:02:05.084
所以這是一個手,這是一個手,
So, this is arm.

0:02:05.194,0:02:08.134
這是肩,這是肩,這是肘。
This is shoulder, and this is elbow.

0:02:08.911,0:02:14.891
這腰,腰我這樣去用啊,身體就往那邊去了,力量就往那邊去了。
If I move my waist like this, my body and force will go that way.

0:02:14.891,0:02:15.391
是不是?
Isn’t it?

0:02:15.550,0:02:18.499
因為我的腰擺著一個位置。
Because my waist is in one position.

0:02:18.798,0:02:23.858
你看它跟重力不是垂直的嘛,所以力量,所以力量在這裡了。
See, my waist is not vertical to the gravity, so the force is here.

0:02:23.858,0:02:24.547
是不是這樣子?
Isn’t it like this?

0:02:25.204,0:02:29.611
我的胯,你看我的胯放到這邊,你看重力又變了。
See, my crotch is here, and the gravity is changed again.

0:02:32.090,0:02:32.692
這樣有沒有懂?
Do you understand?

0:02:34.126,0:02:36.066
所以你看我,我在走的時候,
So, look at me. When I am walking,

0:02:37.460,0:02:42.596
我只是調整我跟重力,每一個關節調整我跟重力之間的關係。
I just adjust the relationship between the gravity and my joints.

0:02:46.997,0:02:48.616
我們要做的只是這個。
What we need to do is this.

0:02:50.758,0:02:51.327
曉得嗎?
Understand?

0:02:51.685,0:02:56.000
而不是不管那個重力你自己在那邊做,你自己在那邊做。
Do not leave the gravity alone and do it on your own.

0:03:00.779,0:03:06.819
所以為什麼,為什麼我們,比方八卦拳、太極拳這種拳,
So, why do we, like Bagua Quan and Taichi Quan,

0:03:08.542,0:03:11.378
它對身體的要求那麼嚴?
have such strict requirement of the body?

0:03:13.230,0:03:16.301
因為你要能做到我的身體的每一個地方的改變,
Because one needs to fulfill the requirement that every change of the body

0:03:16.301,0:03:19.884
都是我跟重力的關係的改變。
is the change between the gravity and oneself.

0:03:20.384,0:03:26.874
而引導出來,我要的那個力量,我要的那個行動的方向。
Therefore, the force and the moving direction I want are guided out.

0:03:30.000,0:03:30.609
這樣有沒有懂?
Do you understand?

0:03:30.728,0:03:37.479
所以你們平常就要去注意這個你平常跟重力的關係是什麼,
So, you need to pay attention to the relationship between the gravity and yourself in daily life,

0:03:38.156,0:03:40.161
因為它是不變的。
because it(gravity) is constant.

0:03:41.077,0:03:44.961
所以你要掌握的是什麼?可變的是誰?
So, what do you need to control? What can be changed?

0:03:45.693,0:03:46.704
可變的是你吧。
You can change yourself.

0:03:47.912,0:03:48.542
是不是這樣子?
Isn’t it like this?

0:03:48.950,0:03:53.413
所以它是不變的。可變的是我,所以我就改變我。
It(gravity) can’t be changed. What can be changed is me, so I change myself.

0:03:54.090,0:03:56.590
我就改變我,我改變我。
I change myself.

0:03:57.237,0:03:59.571
改變,改變我自己。
I change myself.

0:04:00.766,0:04:01.845
行動就變了。
If I change myself, my action changes as well.

0:04:09.293,0:04:14.961
這是這種武術好玩的地方,所以不要你用力,不要你用力。
This is what makes this kind of martial arts interesting. So, don’t exert your force.

0:04:14.961,0:04:19.583
它講的不要你用力,其中有一個就是不要用你自己的思維。
It tells you not to exert your force and it means not to use your thought.

0:04:19.583,0:04:25.616
你自己的定見去控制你的行動,你只要去配合。
Don’t control your action with your fixed opinion. You just need to cooperate.

0:04:26.532,0:04:28.321
配合誰?配合它。
Who should you cooperate with? Cooperate with it(gravity).

0:04:32.674,0:04:33.331
這樣有沒有懂?
Do you understand?

0:04:33.381,0:04:36.908
這樣你就省力啦,力量又大。
This way, you can save the effort while still having strong strength.

0:04:39.696,0:04:42.105
是不是?力量再大也沒有它大啊。
Isn’t it? No matter how strong your force is, you can’t be stronger than gravity.

0:04:48.000,0:04:48.695
這樣有沒有懂?
Do you understand?

0:04:49.233,0:04:51.000
這就是要練的。
This is what needs to be practiced.

0:04:51.626,0:04:57.330
所以你們習慣去控制的人,對你們來講最困難的就是這個。
So, to people who are used to controlling, the most difficult thing is this.

0:04:57.718,0:05:02.549
像力行啊,哈哈Victor啊,你們很多。
Like Lixing(name), Victor, and a lot of you.

0:05:02.967,0:05:10.368
就太習慣自己去控制的,你要做到這個你必須要很仔細地去察覺。
You guys are used to controlling. If you want to achieve this, you need to perceive it carefully.

0:05:11.884,0:05:12.444
這樣有沒有懂?
Do you understand?

0:05:13.280,0:05:20.042
放掉那個控制,所以去練習,練習用它。
Don’t control it, so go practice how to use it.

0:05:24.244,0:05:25.682
好,再練練看。
Ok. Let’s keep practicing.
