The following is an abstract from Tung Ying-chiehs "Taichichuan Explained." It is translated by Wu Ta-yeh and Wu Ten Shu-hsien.
"The classic says, energy is rooted at the feet,
developed through the legs, directed by the waist, and manifested
in the hands and fingers. This is the principle of issuing
strength. When your whole body is pliable and agile, the strength
from the legs and waist is fully transmitted to your hands and
fingers. Your body resembles a flexible steel rod, with a hammer
at the tip. The pliable action of the rod transmits your strength
to the hammer so that nothing can resist it. If you study and
experiment with this very carefully, and practice it accordingly,
you will gradually develop this real intrinsic strength."
