This video covers a few concepts: Buddha’s Warrior Attendant Pounds Mortar, application of Buddha’s Warrior Attendant Pounds Mortar, and the concept (or principle) of Crispy.

Master Chen explained to me the concept to Crispy first described like this:

“The Taiji fighting relationship is called crispy. There is no power involved, there is no looseness. It is just right so can you see in the fighting later on, everything is crispy. If you go away, I find it, I track it. That is why it looks like you can get away, but I am following you and [...] I find opportunity again.”

The relationship about which Master Chen spoke was one with no direct visible physical connection. The Yin version of this would be performing an arm lock using both hands (as demonstrated in this video.) The Yang version, using the connection would be taking that same arm lock and connecting it to the kua (also demonstrated.)

Later on, Master Chen elaborated on this concept:

“What is crispy? [It] involves two things. One is sharp, two is sticks almost on. Exactly the same as a pair of scissors. The blade is very sharp, the two blades are so close they stick. Any space, your object is going to fight it.

In fighting number one is I give you no space, number two where I touch you is very sharp, like razor sharp. That is why I trained you [this concept] right from the beginning.”

As Master Chen taught the first technique, this concept of crispy is clearly demonstrated showing the effects with and without the principle applied. Once one can apply this principle to their techniques the self defense applications become immediately apparent.
