Is this fajing?

When i first started college a few months ago, I was already a practitioner of Taijiquan (wushu yang Beijing 24 style) for half a year. I tried a move called "fa jing (fa1 jing4)". I shook my hips violently like a hula dancer and then did single whip inadvertently into a tissue paper dispenser. All i remember is, I shut my eyes and then the next second the dispenser had been miraculously split into two halves. LOL.

All i want to know is, is this fajing, or is it a dumber version of the karate chop used on a 10-year-old tissue dispenser?

Hello NathanZhang

<<Is this fajing?

How will you know fajing if/when you encounter it? (And while we're on the topic...) Please explain what you understand fajing to be? Jing, meaning energy-power I assume but how would you translate this "fajing" better into English???

The best translation would be "explosive power"

Hello Aoishi:

Ok, and this "explosive power" is different from what ~normal~ (?) power how?

The answer might have something to do with dynamite or gunpowder.
