Double Heavy

by webmaster2 on 2012/12/14

Any time you have a large surface of contact you are double heavy – no surface – only use a dot. The exception is when you intentionally create a large surface to counter your opponent’s particular action.

I am beginner and would like some clarifications here – “…The exception is when you intentionally create a large surface to counter your opponent’s particular action…”
Master Chen uttered before when countering opponent’s incoming action by quietly placing 2 points, 3 points ,… more contact points.
I would like to know is it under these created situations, the opponent is being trapped into “double heavy”, hence easily off balance by “adding one”?
But then, are we equally vulnerable of “double heavy”?

Very good point! This is where intention comes in. Intention here refers to who is doing it and whom is having it done to. Same with a hammer and nail. Everything is equal except the hammer has the intention while the nail is being hammered.
