Hmmm, I think you missed the point... where it says "share and contribute".

how about I make a chishi video? lol

eyrie...I think I know where you are going, but if it's all the same, I'll just keep 'internal art' things as impressions instead of expressions. I know I'm doing these exercises correctly because they feel right...not from concentrating on of the minutae of details.

at some point I must have...but I seriously don't remember the details of how it was taught.

Am I on track in interpreting that the bag exercise is developing maximum power with minimal effort at a short distance?

Is this the theory behind the 1/4 inch punch?

It's not an exercise as much as it is a "test" of how developed your abilities are in sourcing the power from elsewhere other than the shoulder/arms.

That you can develop *some* short distance power thru seemingly "minimal" effort is a by-product of the real "exercise" that I am trying to get Ed to verbalize.

In the bag exercise (which I don't have one and am trying to find a substitute), are you "channeling" the energy from other parts of your body, or using muscles from outside the arm/shoulders?

You sure about that? This coming from an engineer, with a background in reductionism and reductionist methodologies? LOL!

I'm not asking you for a "Total Recall". I'm asking you to verbalize/externalize your "feelings". Probably very hard for you, no? LOL!

actually, it is difficult - because first, they aren't 'feelings' since there is no emotion attached (maybe something difficult for you? lol)...like I said, there are impressions.

it's like asking me to describe what I'm focusing on while walking. ...usually anything other than the walking itself!
