I don't really like the term "power generation" as I don't feel like this is something I'm making more like letting happen. I've been putting together a list of the various methods I've been exposed and where I learned it. Please, feel free to comment, by no means do I mean this to be a comprehensive list. Also, I've only got various pieces of each of these so far, so much work ahead.

  • Tension

  • Strength training
Heaviness

  • Maximum tension, relaxation (Systema)

To clarify I think I was using Yiquan strength testing as an example of single movement drills. I've learned a number of different drills throughout different styles. I've pretty much stopped all wing chun and Japanese stuff.

Power simply comes from muscle conditioning and learning to get multiple muscles to work together to generate explosive power.

I think the OP is talking about means of expressing it, not of creating it or cultivating it. The title is about delivery.
