單鞭 Single Whip


Thousands of Taijiquan practitioners have performed “Single Whip”, but not many know why one hand is held in a hook.  It is to consolidate the internal force so that it will be exploded out in the other hand. If both hands are in open palms, the internal force will be spread out in both hands instead of being channeled to the palm in one hand with the other hand in a hook as a “brake”.
