comment What is Qi power and has it been proven to exist scientifically?
Breaking things and not being broken is not qi, it is physical conditioning that every chinese martial artist does. Qi also does not give you more physical strength, it gives you more power. These are 2 different things.

comment What is Qi power and has it been proven to exist scientifically?
My Brother studied bajiquan in china and learned that qi is not energy, it is literally 'your air' hence the variety of breathing techniques involved. When used in martial arts, qi is not the power and energy you used, but it is the force from the air you use.

Well you could still do it, but it will take a bit longer and bit harder to get the target. Cant you throw in some elbow strikes?

@Reno i would too when kicks are allowed. Not many people have muscular back-of-knees. Alan it is always better to fight someone stronger than you!

comment What martial art should I try if I want to train with a wide variety of weapons?
You start staff and [if you want to, fan] right away. There is a class solely for teaching straight sword, but you have to be in main class for a month before you can join. Other weapons are after each grading.

comment What are the advantages of using a vertical fist for punching?
Boxers break those knuckles because they do not strengthen them. It does make a huge different hitting with 6 joints and a flat surface, the impact it dispersed over a large area. I have never even slightly injured my hand with a sun fist even on head strike 「and i am mainly for wing chun so my boxing punch is not strong as my sun fist」 the one time i fought boxing style and made contact, i broke 2 knuckles.

Well you can hit harder with the knuckles i said. Using two knuckles to hit someone in the head will break your knuckles. Hitting them with 6 knuckles and a flatter surface will not damage your hand.

comment What are the advantages of using a vertical fist for punching?
If you strike with your forefinger and middle finger, you are not doing the vertical punch correctly. As for striking the head, there are two reasons for it's usefulness. 1 the flick of the wrist i mentioned in my post causes a painful jerk and whiplash in the neck instead of pushing their entire body back. 2 unless you have time to land a heavy strike 「which will not always not knock someone out」 you are better of with 4 strikes to the bridge or temple causing serious disorientation in half the time it takes to land a heavy blow.
