    I wasn't talking about Fajin when I commented on your explanation of his rooting problem.

    I'm not in the mood for a semantics argument because, what you posted doesn't disagree with what I said. You aren't an idiot and we will bicker while agreeing.

    You are quoting stuff you don't understand as an explanation that can be made to fit a myriad of explanations.

    Ancient Chinese is not like what you said could be explained in myriad of explanations. Some of words may have different meanings, but about this article, many of Taichi practicer agreed on the explaining.

    Really? You do know we have scholars on this board right? We have Tachi and kung fu Masters that can't agree on the meaning of Tai Chi, Chi, Fajing and all the theories contained within.

    Many do not agree. Many say things completely the opposite of what you are currently trying to float.

    emm... Sorry, not in my kongfu environment in Beijing. So maybe it is my limited field of vision.

    One of the best displays of "fajin" I've seen was from one of the female pro-boxers at my BJJ gym who was just doing her own training on a heavy bag. Crisp and fluid with exceptional body mechanics. I assume she's never done tai chi in her life.

    No videos I can point to; the stuff I was referring to was seen was live.

    Sorry to have stirred up a tempest in a teapot over what I'd thought to be a small question. I'll refrain from noob questions hereafter.

    Well then why did you mention videos in your opening post?

    so I looked around at various videos and ended up watching a bunch that demonstrated taijiquan's use of fajin... . None of the videos display anything that looks like the fajin that I've seen-- all the videos show fast whip like motions
    How about you point out some of those videos?

    That was the result of several hours late-night zooming around youtube and I hadn't thought that I'd end up referring to them, so I'm sorry that I don't have to hand what I was referring to (oddly I don't seem to come across the same taiji videos there twice for some reason). Not really important anyway, as I was hardly objecting to what taiji guys do, I was just asking if they do the other approach as well, which I didn't happen to stumble upon. I'll zoom about a bit after I get off the clock and see if I can find what I was referring to.
