Glossary – Verse

Verse (诀) [Jue] –

One of the two components in a martial skill. A martial skill usually consist of both a Verse and a Movement. A Verse is a formula that teaches the flow and release of energy in a body. A Movement is a series of physical actions. Both are required in order to learn a martial skill, as they complement each other. For example, the first part of the Verse complements the first step in the Movement, in order to control the flow of energy for that step in that part of the martial skill.
