Fajin ( Chinese  發勁  /  发劲 , Pinyin Fajin  - "Jin-force exercise") refers to the Chinese martial arts , a concept in which kinetic energy is to be transferred by means of a sudden attack technique on the opponent.


In the Chen style of Taijiquan , the practice of Fajin is part of the standard training, in other Taijiquan styles, many of which are based on the Chen style, rarely or not at all, as these were often developed as a simplification.
