@FredoFreedom Actuall I didn’t just through study of Taiji as my Teacher taught.

Looks great! Thank you. Did you do any other gi-gung like I-Chuan to develop this?
May 7, 2011 at 10:56 am (UTC 0)
All of you talking crap…I guarantee you this guy would knock you on your ass, haha.
May 7, 2011 at 11:09 am (UTC 0)
Do you have a video upload of how it’s done?

@xXmRecePmXx you have no idea

@TheZhongzheng Hi I am referring to a punch which will always have a circular movement due to the power being issued by the waist. Any movement that initiated by the waist can’t be linear and should contain a spiral and you are correct Taiji does contain linear movement regards.

@whoflungdat A Tai Chi technique must involve circle and focus, Tai Chi contains both circular and linear movement, there has to be both.

@whoflungdat totally agree with you mate

Excellent treatise on the power of jing!

The punch must not be to effective, he hit that guy several times and he’s still standing. My punch he would have been flying across the room.

I will chime in here. What ramcity is talking about is the internal power in the tai chi strikes, what he is saying is correct. If you don’t believe what he says then I suggest you do the technique slowly. Tai Chi chuan works whether slow or fast. That punch he used in the video can be demonstrated at any rate of speed without losing it’s effectiveness. That’s what internal power does.

This is probably the best explanation on tai chi punching that I’ve seen. I wonder if this punch can generate even more force if it added foot pivot from boxing (maybe that’s what Bruce Lee did?), and the 45 degree angle step and follow through from muay thai? The other teachers also mentioned something about sinking that looks like how a boxer lower his stance to generate more power into his strike. I think it would be amazing to watch you work the heavy bag demonstrating the different strikes.

Tai Chi — Okay, that style is before Taiji is born.

Agreed… whoflungdat is an idiot and arguing with idiots is pointless. To talk is easy when it comes to fighting… he should put up a video showing how its done or shut up.
May 7, 2011 at 4:25 pm (UTC 0)
whoflungdat, sorry but it seems that you are the one who can’t see everything, this man;s punches look very relaxed and powerfull.
May 7, 2011 at 4:49 pm (UTC 0)
yep your right there, no point wasting anymore time.
May 7, 2011 at 5:13 pm (UTC 0)
Like I said before. This conversation is pointless.
