The Five Phases Theory of Tai Chi - The Five Phases of Tai Chi | HowStuffWorks
"In tai chi chuan, the five elements are used to describe five special movements, five different weapons, and five different energies. They are also a tool for tactical planning."

five elements in pentagon
= outside circle, one supports/constructs next -> defense
= inside pentagram, one subdues next -> offense
= rearrange as square around center point ~ 5 movements

"Not all tai chi masters, though, agree about which of the five elements are related to which movements. One very common set of correspondences has fire relating to advance, water to retreat, metal to step and look left, wood to step and look right, and earth to central balance."

The 10 essential Yang style Tai Chi principles in Chinese & translated
Via Nancy Lucero, Oct 2019

"I put together the Yang Chengfu Tai Chi principles in Chinese and I added various translations. Because even though the principles are really simple, the translations vary slightly. And I think that is interesting, to see the different angles and emphasizes."

Learn tai chi properly, and the more you do it, the more you rejuvenate! Here, Shifu Loretta Wollering - owner of Internal Gardens (tai chi NJ school), and content editor of the last edition of Master Jou's bestselling tai chi book - introduces the basic concept."

What Does “Tai Chi Chuan” Mean, and Why is It Also Spelled as “Taijiquan?” | Internal Gardens
"The Taoists explained that before the universe came into existence, everything (nothing?) was in a state of “wu chi.” ... “Wu chi” 無極 means “no polarity.” ... It’s somewhat the non-existence of nothingness… space… void… When there was a “change” in the state of wu chi, then there was a differentiation – the original wu chi part, and, the changing part. That state of differentiation is a phase called “tai chi.” It literally means “great polarity.” The opposite poles on of this polarity are referred to as yin and yang. Just like plus and minus, each opposite exists because of the existence of the other. The Taoists say that the yin and yang (born from the state of tai chi) give rise to all things and processes in the universe."

"So what does “chuan” mean? It means “fist.” It implies the martial arts practice and discipline of something."
