  • Momentum: Practicing taking an initial step every now and then in a combination to add power from gravity and centrifugal force. 

  • Penetration: Practicing driving each blow deep into the opponent’s body many inches past surface contact. One should feel as if their energy continues on into and through the opponent’s body. 

  • Explosions: Practicing a peak of one's physical potentials and spiritual energies at the moment of impact. 

  • Compensation: Practicing positioning the center towards the force feedback experienced when making contact. 

  • Create the Desired Force: Creating a realistic cause level and then letting that energy imbue the physical form. 

  • Transfer the Force: Unloading all spiritual energy into the opponents body at the moment of impact. 

  • Depth to Maximum Resistance: Being sure to penetrate on the target to the point where you can go no further without injury. 

  • Loose to Potential: Being sure to keep your body loose until maximum resistance, and then at that point, mobilizing to your utmost potential. 

  • Physical/Spiritual Peaking: At the moment the strike hits maximum resistance, the body and spirit peak to a level outside the opponent’s ability to confront thereby overwhelming him.
