High Level Taiji: Looseness, Softness, Sound of a Dropping Foot

In the past a person's taiji skill level was judged by the softness and looseness of the person's taiji form. Those with a soft and loose form were considered to have a high level of kung fu, of taiji practice.

Also, the quality of a person's taiji could be determined by the sound made when the person dropped their foot during the form.  When the body is not balanced the sound of the dropping foot is different.
