comment How can one practice well alone?
Apologies for such a late reply. The towel has two purposes. Speed and precision. Hit it too slowly (not actually slow, just, slow for a strike?) or hit too far forward like you are going through the towel, and you get water on you. It helps you learn the right distance to hit, helps you learn control as trying to push through with the punch (which leads to elbow injuries) will get water on you, and again, strike fast enough and you wont get wet.

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!
