My friend and teacher, Wang Ming Bo gave me a scroll with the calligraphy characters hadwritting on by his aged father. It says, “Golden Rooster Stands on One Leg.” I’ve seen birds of different kinds standing on one leg many times. In taiji, you should be to test yourself by standing on one leg.
So … Stand on one foot. Can you do it without falling over after a minute or two? Do you have trouble getting stable even after a second or two? What do you do to improve your stability when you test yourself by standing on one leg? …. Simple…Do Tai Chi.
