Pearls on a String

The Tai Chi classic writings mention that the joints of the body should be joined as if they were pearls on a string.

Each joint should be able to rotate naturally. For example, if your arm is pushed upwards towards you, it should be able to rotate naturally at the shoulder and redirect the force back towards the attacker.

Each " Pearl " is capable of independent rotation or they can be linked in sections or as a whole.
