concept of double heavy (or not) is central to the understanding of

WRT Taijiquan, "double heavy" in this case means there is a place
where you will be weak and can be thrown. A flat edge to push on.
Judoka might call it an "opening". If you are not double heavy, then
there is no such opening; this central equilibrium is the position
where you are most likely to be able to react in time to a throw from
your opponent. Call it not leaving an opening. The way taiji does it

Now, assume the same position, I move to your side and push your shoulder....you
stay put...it's MUCH harder to unbalance you from this position.
So, if we are moving around, I will try to have you standing in front of me.
See how simple that was? No "grounding coupled with the ability to shift the

the ground." where the terms 'energy' and 'grounding' require some convoluted
explanation not found in the physical sciences. What 'energy'? Electrical energy?
