This technique is achieved by collecting the accumulated overflow of hot energy in the surrounding air with the rotational force of one's motion until it forms into a needle. At that point, that collected atmospheric force would then be directed from the circular motion into a straight line (via punch), where it is sent barreling into the target. Skilled users are able to transmit the Ryukei Qigong through a solid medium (such as a tree, a concrete construct or even a living being) rather than air. It is said that mastery of this technique is achieved by jutting the fist upward. When the rising stream of force can split waterfalls, and penetrate the clouds mastery has been achieved.
