NGOC-DINH AND CRITICAL THINKING

Beyond the physical exercises Ngoc Dinh offers a great opportunity to learner and teacher for exploring new ideas, and training under the critical thinking spirit.        
This means in the role of a teacher you can guide your black-belts and advanced students to learn by discovering themselves different aspects of a same fact or concept.       
Critical Thinking is a good method for this purpose.

For the scope of this chapter, in a practical and simplest way we see this method as a method using observation, analysis, reason and logic to come to a conclusion about a subject under investigation. In order to engage in critical thinking the student of Ngoc Dinh must have an open mind for discussion, value new ideas, accept evidence rather than beliefs.
Through 28 Movements of Ngoc Dinh teacher and students can select one or several movements to be a subject of investigation. That could be in the field of body training, physical logic, mental training, meditation, life experience, virtue, philosophical concept, and so on.  Then in the end the group could arrive to an accepted conclusion, unanimously or by consensus. So under the guidance of the teacher each group could build a method to follow according to the nature of the subject. 
As an example, here are some steps that could be followed.


Step 1. Choosing a subject and ask question(s).
For example: Movements 27 and 28. What does it mean We are always ourselves; why the young man who has reached the top of the Jade Mountain stayed silent when he came back to his village?           
Step 2 . Critical observation to find out interesting facts; collect new ideas through discussion.
For example: How would the group interpret the gesture of Movement 27? What is the meaning of Movement 28? Maybe there is nothing to say, is it just a movement for closing the quyen Ngoc Dinh?

Step 3 (to be continued in the next post, Post 437)

-Thiệu Teaching Poem
Trung Bình Tấn
Trung bình, đứng tấn vững vàng
Giữ cho muôn sự mọi đàng bình yên
Nội công: tâm tĩnh, đoạn phiền
Ngoại công:thân pháp  chuyển quyền vô biên

Be solid, such an arch,
All pressures are transmitted elsewhere
Keeping thousand things in harmony
For the Inner: quietness
For the Outer: make surprising move.
(Phan Hoàng)

STANCE STUDY – Tấn Bộ - in VIETCHIDAO
As the Vietchidao is not a martial-art but an Educational Martial-Art, the aim of Stance Study will not be focused on the fighting efficiency but concentrated on the improvement of your health and the elevation of your mind; the physical balance of the body and the artistic dimension of the posture; the meaning in social behavior and strategy; the concern for personal development and life philosophy. In the program of Black-Belt 18 stances make the foundation of Stance Study. Most of these stances are connected to a poem. The poem gives new dimensions that enrich the Stance Study and carry the thoughts of the founder.

Render Vietnamese poems into English with all their subtlety is a task that goes beyond our efforts. So please consider the English version coupled with the Vietnamese poem in our text is not a translation, only a guiding material.

Post 435  THE STRUCTURE OF         NGOC-DINH,
The Jade Mountain


NGOC-DINH consists of 28  movements or sequences. After the movement of salutation (facing South), this quyen operates mainly along the axis East-West then in the end the last movements, Movements 27 and 28, are back to the starting point.
This structure of Ngoc-Dinh observes the Vietchi modern structure called Method Hang-Ngang (Horizontal Line). The traditional structure of most Vietnamese quyen is set on four directions rather than in one horizontal line as Ngoc-Dinh does. Advanced learners of Ngoc-Dinh might want to perform these same 28 movements but in the opposite side according to the rule of symmetry. Performing this quyen by following its structure you are likely following the journey of these five young men who wanted to reach the top of the Jade Mountain. Did all of them succeed in their quest?

With unaffected mind and great vision
Concentrate on inner power, forget all gossips.
