In Yiquan a key element of power is softness.  Not only does softness increase the amount of power you can deliver it minimizes the amount of effort used by the Yiquan practitioner. This is very important when facing bigger stronger opponents or when using Yiquan in old age. Though a lot of Yiquan training is focused around building more striking power it is also important to spend a lot of time training to use that power with less and less effort. when Yiquan is done properly the movement should be soft and effortless for the practitioner and overwhelmingly powerful to the opponent at the same time.

Sometimes opponents are just big and strong and even with good body mechanics and internal principles you have to adapt to account for their strength. Here Sigung Clear discuses how to deal with an opponent who is strong enough to negate the "qi melt" technique shown in the last video.  The key is that Yiquan is always fluid aggressive and responsive. When the Yiquan practitioner runs in to resistance they immediately change and adapt. This rapid adaption is critical not only because real attacks are messy and fluid but also because the Yiquan practitioner is striving to overwhelm the opponent with minimal effort and pushing an attack where the opponent is strong is unwise and not conducive to the Yiquan strategy. The the adaption show in this clip is a common one, there are many other ways Yiquan might respond in this situation as well.

Introduction

Clear’s Silat is a street-practical self-defense system developed over the past 30+ years by Sigung Richard Clear and based on his extensive studies, knowledge, and skills in the indigenous arts of Indonesia, China, Tibet, Russia and other cultures.

The arts in this system ( Pentjak Silat, Kun Tao, Kung Fu, and Systema) are taught for their combative focus and their effectiveness against multiple attackers armed with weapons.
