The Yin and Yang of Relaxation | KaiMenI have come to believe that those who study martial arts should never look on the Yin Yang figure as a mere symbol. Instead they should think of it as a formula, an equation written with pictures instead of numbers. You may feed in certain ideas, then see what comes out on the other side of that equal sign. Here is an example of that figure, the spiral alternation of black and white. You can grab any two opposites in the martial arts and use this formula to comprehend their complementary aspects. Take relaxation and tension. This tension, linked with power, keeps increasing until it’s time for your instructor to walk up and whisper, “Relax your muscles.” A dilemma still seems to raise its ugly head. Often the heavy punch that is also relaxed will probably be the most powerful punch that you throw, but not necessarily. In training it can be useful to exaggerate. This constant vacillation between any two points of training is a common strategy in martial arts.
