太极拳的八法是指八个拳法动作引申为八个卦象,因为太极生两仪,两仪生四象,四象生八卦,所以:1乾:挒,2兑:挤;3离:劈;4震:棚;5巽:靠;6坎:按;7艮:肘;8坤:采。
Tai Chi's 8 principles means 8movements lead to deeper means Bagua's 8 images, because TaiChi born 2 yi(yin and yang), 2 yi born 4 appearances, 4appearances born Ba gua(8images)"1,Qian: lie;2Dui:Ji,3,Li: Pi;4,Zhen:Peng;5,Xun:Kao;6,Kan:An;7,Gen:Zhou;8,Kun:Cai.

八卦与五行的关系:The relationships ofBaguawith 5 elements:
根据传统八卦理论八个卦象引申的五行含义为:Tradiitonal Bagua theory also include 5 elements meaning:
  ☰乾:天健父马头脑南西北金111U+2630 Qian means: sky, father,hourse,head,northwest,metal etc.,
☱兑:泽悦少女羊口肺东南西金110U+2631 Dui means: lake, happy, young girl, goat, mouth, south-east, metal etc,.
☲离:火丽中女雉目胆囊东南火101U+2632 Li means: fire, beautiful, middle girl, eye, gallbladder, southeast, fire etc,.
☳震:雷动长男龙足心东北东木100U+2633 Zhen means: thunder old boy,dragon, feet, heart, north-east wood etc,.
☴巽风入长女鸡股肝西南东南木011U+2634 Xun means: wind, old girl, chicken, liver, southeast, wood etc,.
☵坎:水陷中男豕耳肾西北水010U+2635 Kan means: water sink, middle boy, pig, ear, kidney water north etc.,
☶艮:山止少男狗手胃西北东北土001U+2636 Gen means: mountain, young boy, dog, hand, stomach, northeast, earth etc.,
☷坤:地顺母牛腹脾北西南土000U+2637 Kun means: earth, follow, cow, abdomen, spleen, southwest, earth etc.,
因此,太极五行与八法十三式就像八卦与五行是密切相关的,不像某人的论点:太极八法与五行十三式豪无关系
hence, Tai Chi 5 elements have very tight relationship with Bagua 8 images(8 principles)which total are 13forms.

A better illustration of the 8 Principles (see attachment)

tai chi yin yang bagua 8 principles

This is the Xiantian Bagua, also known as Fu Xi Bagua or Earlier Heaven Bagua.

You can see how 3 Yin/Yang formed the combination of the 8 elements (trigrams), their exact positions, meanings and the corresponding Chinese characters (and pronunciations).

This is also the center of the Taoism philosophy. You may have seen similar illustrations in that context too.

Feng's explanations are detailed enough for you to understand the whole symbol.

I actually found this symbol on Amazon - Ying Yang T-Shirt, Chinese Tai Chi Bagua Yin Yang, Anvil
Master the ultimate principles of Yin Yang Bagua - the foundation of Tai Chi.
Search "Ying Yang T-Shirt, Chinese Tai Chi Bagua Yin Yang" on Amazon.
