Delivering jing

You cannot skilfully employ jing if you use too much pressure.
It will only lead to failure and potentially injury.

When resistance is encountered, stop when 4 ounces of pressure is reached.
Too light and you are not sticky.
Too much and you are pushing an inanimate object. And that is not taijiquan.

Understanding 4 ounces will enable you to strike without harming your own body.
