In tai chi practice, there is no distinct “striking”, only undifferentiated movement.  If structure and central equilibrium are maintained at all times, then each part of the movement will be equally powerful. So in practice, no part of the movement should be emphasized with muscular tension or feel any different than any other part. In application, this means that any part of the movement could be a strike.
