    Sifu,
    Are you tightening your body or fist in anyway when making contact?

    • No, There is a contracting and expanding action happening during Beng. However it’s happening the entire time. So you don’t have to try to time the exact moment of contact and if you hit them earlier or later than you thought it doesn’t matter.

      The more relaxed you are the more power you can get to transfer to the opponent and the deeper your strikes will penetrate. So eventually you want to train to relax & release extra as you strike. However in the beginning focus on maintaining your structural integrity and making sure the whole body is in the movement.
