It's all about intention. Every move you do in a form, every pose, every posture, must have intention behind it. You must know what you're doing and why you're doing it. When you execute a move or a technique, ask yourself, what is your intention? If it's to strike, then strike with the same force and intensity you would for real. If it's to grab, then grab and understand that your opponent is NOT a willing one. That way you'll know exactly how much force, leverage and speed you need to achieve your objective. This is called being a Martial Artist. If you chose to live like a Martial Artist, then that means you chose to live life with meaning. It's not just about fighting, it's about putting purpose into everything you do. You live life to it's fullest and are aware of everything that goes on. This is the true purpose of Kung Fu. Life is made up of time, time is the what life is... Don't waste it.
