Wondering if I can get some input with a question I asked regarding my taiji practice.
I've been having problems w/ my knees lately, which isn't uncommon w/ Chen style. But, I've hit a crossroads where I know I have to do something different if I want to continue to practice and not cause further injury.
I've been told before that i have been going too low with my stance and I hadn't really taken that to heart for some reason or another. I wish I would have paid more attention to this and raised my stance as my knees do feel better when I do. however, there are many, many requirments for parts of the body such that I overlooked stance heigth as being a source of my pain and instead attributed the knee pain to other aspects of my structure. I've been going through a process of narrowing down the shortcomings in my structure. Taiji is very filling nourishment for me which is why I want to do it correct for a long time to come. I'd like to gain some insight during this time of reassesment and I have been asking questions of Yi about other parts of my structure and how they are related to pain.
So, I asked "What is your input in regards to the heigth of my stance being the source of my knee pain and instability?"
64.1 makes sense as I have been told to not go so low before. But is it the main source?
I haven't had any experience with hex 38 and I don't clearly see how it applies in this situation.
