[quote] Sancai, or the “Three Essentials,” is the generative point from which all perceptible things derive. Sancai contains within it the three most
valuable treasures of the universe: sky, earth and humans. Sky is characterized by the attributes of yang; earth, by the attributes of yin.
Humankind is generated from the interaction of sky and earth.

According to Daoist principle, the Sancai can be found within even the smallest units of matter. In every occurrence of Sancai, there are three
treasures or Sanbao and in each treasure, there are three more treasures. The sky, for example, a treasure of Sancai, contains the three
treasures of sun, moon and stars; the earth contains the three treasures of water, fire and wind; and man contains the three treasures of jin, qi,
and shen.

In Xingyi Quan, the trinity or tripartite structure is called Santi or Sanjie. This structure includes three external parts of the body and three
internal components. The three body areas defined by Santi or Sanjie are: Shao jie, the tip section which includes the arms and hands; zhong
jie, the middle or trunk section which includes the head and torso; and gen jie, the root section which includes the legs and feet. Consistent with
the tripartite principle, each of these three sections can be divided into three smaller sections. Shao jie includes: a tip section comprised of the
hands; a middle section comprised of the elbows; and a root section comprised of the shoulders. Zhong jie includes the head as the tip section,
the chest as the middle section, and the waist or stomach as the root section. In Gen jie, the feet are the tip section, the knees are the middle
section, and the hips are the root section. The three internal components of Santi or Sanjie are shen, qi and jin.

Santi or Sanjie is the foundation of all skills in Xingyi Quan and the starting point for all change and development. The post standing practice
Santi Shi, also commonly called Sancai Shi, is a technique that embodies the tripartite principle. It can be divided into three component parts
known as Wuji Shi, Taiji Shi, Liangyi Shi, and Santi Shi. Santi Shi practice incorporates the core concepts of Xingyi Quan and generates all other
Xingyi Quan skills.[quote]http://www.ycgf.org/Articles/XY_SanTiShi/XY_SanTiShi.html

It is very simple, there are triangles everywhere in the San Ti Shr.

These triangles make the structure extremely strong.

There are three external and three internal "harmonies"/connections. How does the three internal connections, "San nei he" make up triangles? :-\ ;)

What you practice in santishi is the liuhe which is in XYQ divided into San wai he and San nei he.

Triangles in the structure are a tangible result of correctly applied Liu He and other requirements.

This is one way to understand what the tripartite aspect means practically.

The XYQ threesome goes beyond triangles. In fact thinking about triangles or any trinity or any other number concepts(example-five elements and their relation to each other) is navel-gazingly practice
