“One Inch Long… One Inch Strong”
This phrase that Master Chen uses should give us a constant reminder of one aspect of Taiji power. It defines the relationship between the ability to lengthen the body at the critical moment and having power over your opponent. We also must understand the critical importance of each part of the body and it’s particular ‘job’ and technical details of it’s use. The spine’s importance is well known, but technical details of it’s use and relationship are not often explicitly discussed.
In this video, Master Chen gives us a wealth of information regarding the relationship between ‘stretch’, ‘ the spine’, and ‘torque’, and what it means for the “spine to ‘come out’ “… ultimately the cumulative efforts of body parts working in different dimensions should produce a large amount of torque that resolves on a dot.

Shifu Chen talks about stretch again and again. Here he also talks about to toque. There are a lot of gems in this video.
