The famous "special move" of the late Bruce Lee, based on a technique known in kung fu as "fa jing", which can be described with the following example: you know that when you try to get a tree out of a garden or a nail out of a piece of wood, you tend to jerk at it repeatedly, rather than pull continuously? It's sort of like that: by moving a part of his body with a quick jerk, rather than a constant force, Bruce Lee (and probably quite a few skilled kung fu practicioners) was able to release a large force from a seemingly short distance.
Some examples of fa jing can be found in tai chi and wing chun I think.
