THE MECHANICS OF FA-JING OR EXPLODING FORCE
Two requirements are needed for an exponent to "fa-jing" or explode force:
- He must have internal force
- He must know the mechanics to explode force
Failing in any one of or both the two requirements will render exploding force not possible.
The are many methods to develop internal force. Probably the most important single category of methods to develop internal force is "zhan zhaung" or stance training.
The most important factor in the mechanics of exploding force is rotation of the waist. The following advice from Taijiquan masters in exploding force is very useful: "Start from the back leg, rotate the waist, and end at the hand." This will result in spiral force from the dan tian.
When an exponent is advanced, he can explode force from his wrist. A Shaolin advice is as follows: "Energy originates from the dan tian. Force is issued from the wrist."
The lessons in the above video were taught by Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit during the Intensive Taijiquan Course in Sabah from 25th to 31st March 2016.
