If the question can be edited to bring it back more to MA it can be reopened. Otherwise the answer starts with "talk to a Doctor."

comment Good music themes for Tai-chi
Closing until it can be improved to fit within the scope of martial arts. Discussion on whether music and other "thematic" elements around martial arts can be considered on topic should go on the meta.

comment “Spinning Block” Pattern Origination
Thanks! Excellent answer. In my class we'd describe it as a "soft block" which for us includes cover techniques and deflections. That may be simply a difference in how we are defining things, or it may be a notational term based on the "looks like" principle, i.e., "this isn't originally conceived as a 'block,' but it looks and flows a lot like the soft techniques we practice, so we call it one."
