An experienced student recognises that the basic exercises teach a student how to store and release energy using a wide variety of methods.
Once you can project jing using basic exercises, you must do the same during partner work, form and self defence.
The student focuses upon creating dynamic tension within the soft tissues of the body.
Less and less effort must be made with each action.
The sense of physicality must fade.
The body is still performing demanding physical movements.

The resistance, the blockages are gone.
Your body feels oiled and smooth.
Every movement you make is an opportunity to practice cultivating and generating jing.
