Unique Experiance and inheritance

Studying Tai Chi should consider both theory and skills. Tai Chi is the Tao, and boxing is a technique. Tao for the body and technology for use, Tao-based technology for the end, the practice but not the technique, then fall in the emptiness, is disillusioned; It is not fundamental to practice without practice. Therefore, must do double studying, and then can get its big success. Further, this is the purpose of life, technology is only the way to achieve this goal. Therefore, the study of tai chi, we must study the principle of tai chi, the road of light in life, but also supplemented by strong longevity technology, so that the Tao and technology complement each other. In this way, the highest ideal of life can be achieved. Practicing tai chi must be based on three principles: (1) The principle of symmetry. The ups and downs of each action must be consistent with the air of Dantian, so that the gas in Dantian, line on the fingers, but still belong to Dantian. A breath, is one of the interest, interest is sent in Dantian, interest is attributed to Dantian. All rely on the force of symmetry to play its work. (2) The principle of balance. The operation of the action, must be complete and complete, there must be up and down, there must be left and right, there must be before and after, there must be inside, the end is put, broken and connected, no defects, no bumps. (3) The principle of circulation. Symmetry is the ontogeny of a yin and a yang. Balance is to make yin and yang get a moderate adjustment. Circulation is to make yin and yang moderately reconcile later to obtain eternal development. All three are ready, can be said to be yin and yang together, life is endless.

Tai Chi Fist and Meditation. Tai Chi is a movement for silence. Move and yang, quiet and yin, move and calm, then yin and yang. Sitting is a quiet movement, its yin and yang are all the same. Tai Chi fist has four kinds of large frame, middle frame, small frame and no frame. An unfed tai chi is a sit-in. Therefore, tai chi and sit-in, the same source, the same law. And the effect is the same. True kung fu practicers should practice boxing and sit-in parallel, can complement each other.

王建今  拳之因緣與鱗爪

王建今曾任時中學社高齡榮譽社長,他三十五歲在四川結識宗師鄭曼青,向宗師學太極拳,來台後朝夕練拳,共同於民45年在臺北成立中美文化經濟協會太極拳委員會。民65年任中華民國太極拳總會名譽理事長,是鄭子學生中目前最享高壽,高齡103歲,晚年又能神智清楚的典範。他曾任最高法院檢察署檢查總長的崇高職務。

他曾自述:「清廉是我的第一生命」,最重視的是名譽與操守。雖然擔任高階官職,但要求所有公物,即使一紙一筆一掃把不可占為己有,家人絕不允許搭乘其公務座車,也絕不接受親友請託。處理公務不受外人干涉,獨立行使職權,公事公辦,毋枉毋縱。凡事以身作則,律己以嚴、待人以寬,中庸之道是其做人原則。要求子女獨立,不依靠別人,全靠自己奮鬥,要誠實、要節儉,如果在外出事,不要張揚「我的父親是王建今」。

養生三大要訣是:生活作息正常、飲食崇尚自然、有恆健身運動。生活簡單,不挑食,不煙不酒,常說白開水是最好的飲料。每天研究書法,以運動、寫詩來紓解工作壓力。

獨到心得與傳承

研究太極拳須道技雙修。太極是「道」,拳是一種「技」。道為體而技為用,,道為本而技為末,修道而不修技,則落於空虛,是趨幻滅;修技而不修道,則失其根本。故必道技雙修,而後始能得其大成。進一步言,這是人生的目的,技不過是達到此一目的之方法而已。所以研究太極拳,必須窮究太極原理,展開人生光明之大道,而又輔以強身長壽之技術,使道與技相得而益彰。如此始可達成人生最高之理想。

練習太極須根據三種原理:(一)、對稱原理。每一動作之起落,必與丹田之氣相連貫,使氣發於丹田,行於手指,而仍歸於丹田。一呼一吸,謂之一息,息息發於丹田,息息歸於丹田。皆賴對稱之力以奏其功。(二)、平衡原理。動作之運行,必須完整圓滿,有上必有下,有左必有右,有前必有後,有外必有內,收即是放,斷而復連,無使有缺陷處,無使有凸凹處,(三)、循環原理。

太極拳與靜坐。太極拳是動中求靜。動而生陽,靜而生陰,動靜調合,則陰陽相濟。靜坐是靜中求動,其陰陽相濟之理全同。太極拳有大架、中架、小架與無架四種。無架之太極拳,即是靜坐。故太極拳與靜坐,理同源,行同法。而效果一致。真正練功夫者,應練拳與靜坐併行,自可相得而益彰。

1963年,在「中美文化經濟協會」內部裏再成立了「太極拳學術研究委員會」。
