I had written before about how when Chen Zhonghua did a punch on me at the workshop that it felt like my insides were being all jarred up even though the hit itself was not very hard.
Some videos from the 2009 Daqingshan Chen Style Taijiquan Practical Method fulltime study are being posted and one of them has a student being hit with such an attack. The attack I felt was like a hammer strike, though I did see a student get hit with the “one inch punch” in the belly.
The common thing in all of these was very little arm movement or physical exertion from Chen Zhonghua yet the effects were felt instantly in the student. I have to admit, I watched the video below multiple times in a row.. I guess I’m slightly sadistic like that.. 😉
