Fa jing

Fa jing is the main method of striking in taijiquan: fuelling punches, palms, elbows, kicks and chin na.
It is the medium by which kinetic energy is transmitted from one body to another.

However, fa jing is not the energy itself.
It is the means by which the energy is delivered: the body mechanics which produce this outcome.

In a 2008 Stanford University experiment taijiquan master Chen Xiang generated a force 14 times his body weight when striking.
0-60 mph in less than 3 seconds.
