Don’t move
It is the same, every time
Stretch the dot backwards, like a bow with a thin arrow
Through that line
Get ready, then you can do anything
Turn the waist, more!
This is called Brush the knee.
It catches the dan tian
Under the feet
Steel ball
Water hose
Like a predator


Sevastianos Maillis August 4, 2018 at 9:18 am

Elbows always aim at the dan tian

Impenetrable and powerful;
Slippery yet crushing! … with a charming smile while at it!

Multi-layered and complex.

Exploding fist
Immobilising touch

I don’t know Master Chen personally, but from seeing him teach in dozen of videos I can tell one of the impressions that he let on me.
He is authentic.


John Dahms August 8, 2018 at 6:35 pm

round & sharp


Benjamin Benefiel August 11, 2018 at 6:45 pm

I was on the floor, confused.

Also: great sense of humor!


Brian Chung February 19, 2020 at 7:49 pm

Hitting a steel rod
Nothing to hold on to
Causes my body to implode
The touch is crisp
So much pressure I collapse
Makes a unique sound come out of me
Locks me up, no where to go
Every touch is a surprise
Able to stretch without moving
Bigger than a fish net
Smaller than a dot
Can lock body parts into one piece
Can separate individual body part
The finger is a spear
Catches my whole body

No way out.

He is Groot!

Don’t care about movments.
Trust in situation.
Breake time.
Freedom of movement instead of action/reaction game.
A spontaneous demonstration of the technique in a gentle but effective manner – that’s true quality.
