Dong Jing has long been regarded as the great secret of Tai Chi masters. The “knowing jing” is the ability to feel an opponent’s root, intent, and structure at first contact. With time and practice, it can even be done at a distance.
It has been said by many masters that without Dong Jing, even Fa Jing is little better than firing blindly. Without Dong Jing, your tai chi skill will always be low level.
