    Try again...I wrote this out and it did not go threw...

    Ok Your are in a ready stance, feet just out side of your shoulders. hands are in the center of your body just below your belly button. as you breath in and your hands rise up in a circle motion towards your head ( hands out straight) say your head is 12 oclock your shoulders are 3 and 9.
    as you breath in you should feel your body rise. once your hands are above your head. you breath out and press your palms down as your body sinks and your legs root them selfs your hands stop at shoulder hight. level with each other but straight out the side of your body. as you breath in again your body rises up and just your palms rotate up and then you breath out and press your hands to the center of your body
    keeping your arms just bent at the elbows as you root again threw your legs, your body sinks again. once there breath in again as your hands rise up just about 6 inches over your head as your body rises. you then breath out and feel your body sink and root again as you press your hands down to just below your belly button... and do again, again, etc.
    NOW as you do the beginning this shows you the roundness of the tree. as you press down this is the triangle of the pine. as you rotate your palms this shows you the braches of the pine tree. as you cut threw this shows you the bottom of the pine. as you go up the center this shows you the truck of the tree and as you go down again this shows the roots and power of the tree.
    There are many, many, selfdefense and offense TEQ in this breathing TEQ. you just need to look beyond what is there...
    hope this helped and you can see it...

    Thank you for the explination. In my other martial art, Aikido, we have breath throws. Most fall under the catagory of Kokyonage. However in many of the techniques these is this sense of roundness or as many refer to as your Kokyo breath. I'm thinking there is a bit of synergy here if this were coming from a Japanese rooted style of Kenpo/Kempo.

    The study of natural law in its self is endless... I have used the movement of trees out side to teach classes before. when you look at the things around you that are alive and you tie in the movements you can see and learn alot from the world in its natural state... just look beyond what is there... like the art of naga... the best way to learn this art is from 1 single paper...
