    Arrow Yang Style Taiji Point Striking

    Point striking in this thread is in reference to striking nerve points on an opponents limbs to cause temporary paralysis. *Not a thread about Dim Mak targeting for maximum damage/death, although I will post anything Taiji that is off the beaten path that may be of interest. My own interest in this subject matter is not in training/learning the art of Yang Style Taiji but in having been on the receiving end of the practice.

    Hitting people as hard as you can in places where it hurts to be hit. Ancient Chinese Secret.

    This thread is actually not about using excessive force. Hitting a vital area with maximum force is usually a killing technique.

    During sparring with a Yang Taiji instructor (in my late twenties) I would be repeatably kicked by a sweep kick that I never did actually see executed upon attack. It would always thump me right in the chest even though I was a good bit taller. This is the kick shown with perfect form by Chen Taiji Master: ( at 13:00 and 15:56 in video). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RzIqq5wj7cc

    Showing this kick for a second time at 15:56 in the video, he turns on the ball of his foot to continue into the ending of the form set. This is very White Crane-like in balance strategy and use of momentum/pivoting.
