Chen Zhonghua Taiji Punch (Video)

by Practical Method on 2007/03/09

One of the aims of Chen Style Taijiquan training is to achieve the ability of penetrating power. This usually is in the form of a punch. What is the difference between a taiji punch and a boxer’s punch? and one-inch punch? One thing that sets a taiji punch apart is its lingering power inside the opponent’s body after the event. Here Chen Zhonghua demonstrated a light push (not a punch yet for it would be too devastating) to Michael Joyce in 2003.

okay. Having this be ME in the video is, of course, an honor. Thankfully all the extensive training we did prepared me for such an experience. (laughing) I’m just glad i wasn’t on the receiving end of a punch. That is for sure!
