 Small refers to qi settling within qi. That is, within the activity of qi there exists a nucleus of stillness, from which the utterance of motion is born. Within stillness of qi there exists a nucleus of motion. Thus, through mutual attraction, unification and transformation are conceived. Small, therefore, is the nucleus, weather active or still. Small refers to qi settling within qi.

-Nurturing is like that of xia cha (sipping tea). Slowly, gradually, steadily, sipping the qi of the earth and heavens. Patience is the door from which gathering of the qi circulates within the Small.

 Nei Jia Quan fa (Internal Boxing methods) emanate from Nurturing the Small. Movement cannot merely be understood through stillness, nor stillness by movement. If this were so, one would merely study a wagon and exclaim that he now understands the true nature of a horse that is about to pull it. Hence, Nurturing the Small must be studied, comprehended,​ and practiced so that Nei Jia boxing [Taiji, Bagua, and Xingyi] can touch the Primordial Essence. As the Essence is inexhaustible,​ so shall one’s nei jia quan gung fa (internal boxing development/​enhancement methods) be imperishable. Nei Jia Quan fa (Internal Boxing methods) emanate from Nurturing the Small.
