Taijiquan theory and body usage

Traditional Chen-style Taijiquan is characterized by Fa jin(発勁, release of internal power) and actual combat techniques like Zhou (肘, elbow technique ) and Gao(靠, body blow ) . Although the routine of Chen-style Taijiquan may look weak at first glance, as a matter of fact, it uses stretch-power and is actually very powerful.
These points are covered in the videos below.
