Fat!If it is true that, at the time the various taijiquan postures got their names the main people practicing taijiquan were pirates, then the names should actually have salty meanings.

I know most of you out there have at one time or another made fun of the silly sounding names of the taijiquan postures. My guess is that who ever came up with those names had a sense of humor and was also a bit of a dandy.

The posture "Lazy About Tying One's Coat" probably means, "Forgetting to tuck in your shirt (after a quickie)."

What do you think the posture names/metaphors actually mean? Can you unlock the indoor secret (salty) teachings?
