Hi, if i could ask, is it the point where the two lines meet that is projected? Thanks

I [think] the point where the two lines meet is where the opponent is “cut” [and squeezed/forced out]

‘ Scissor Power ‘
Fundamental Taiji theory states that One ( wuji ) becomes Two ( taiji ). A single thing becomes differentiated into two clearly defined and separate aspects.
Master Chen teaches us fundamentally that the ‘ single ‘ thing is us. We must develop the ability to become two, and functionally act like a pair of scissors. Scissors are essentially two separate knife blades, but when pinned together, by a hinge, they become a simple lever and also have the ability to work together, while remaining separate. This is the basis of what we try to do.
Because of the hidden nature of taiji application, many think that ‘ whole body power ‘ means using the body as one ( in an effort to generate more power or a special type of power ), but this actually goes against the nature of taiji, and the very definition of taiji itself. Although the two pieces must work together, first you must separate clearly into two.
In this video Chen Zhonghua, shows some powerful applications of the ‘ scissor power ‘, and helps students to work on fundamentals of separation.
