The first Ba Ji power is the shoulder power. The second
is the waist springing power. And the third is the stamping and dropping
power. If somebody can use the internal Qi to coordinate these three sources
to release power in a moment, the person will be great and any simple
action will be extremely explosive and powerful enough to cause a big
damage to an enemy.
The major purpose of Ba Ji training is to develop the ultimate snapping power. After gaining this type of power, some very efficient techniques can be performed or applied. Therefore, Ba Ji Chuan power constitutes the foundation of Ba Ji system. Without this power, Baji techniques make no differences (or even worse) from other styles. The power is very violent and sharply released. A top Ba Ji master can suddenly move out of the way of a bullet from a close range handgun.
Ba Ji, like many other Kung Fu styles, is a complete system. Based on the core power, many striking, grappling, and throwing techniques are developed.
1. A typical Ba Ji striking technique is: walk in, drop body by stampping, suddenly snap the whole body when touching the target. Theoretically, this strike can generate an unlimited force.
2. Ba Ji grappling techniques are also simple. Inside a human body, there are many leverages interconnected by some joints. The joints can move in certain ranges. Any movement out of the ranges may break the joints. In Ba Ji offensive grappling, a practitioner can lock the opponent's certain leverage with the two sides of his body and suddenly snap the whole body to break the leverage. In the defensive grappling, if one side of the body is locked, a practitioner can put the other side of his body on the opponent and snap to forcibly escape from the lock.
3. Throwing Techniques, in other word, low body striking, are based on the Ba Ji footwork. A typical Ba Ji throwing technique is leg lock and body snap throw. Throwing is a fight for balance. The solid foot work and rotative body make these Ba Ji techniques very special.
