Okay, recently I found a few websites describing Ki. They described Ki as being the energy that courses through every single thing. But what I doubt is true is that man has the ability to control energy. But, I do believe that anything is possible. Is it possible to produce little Ki Balls of energy or is it just a hoax. It could be, it may not be... it did say that Ki is pretty much the same as being telekinetic or psychic in some way... I don't know, any thoughts?

I've never seen ki balls used, But ki definately increases your power... It might just be because you focus more, or maybe its more than that... It doesn't really matter, the whole concept makes you fight better.

Yes it is possible.

It won't be what you expect though.

Life is not a computer game.


oh. BTW. what has this to do with this particular forum??

For one Judderman since it is a martial arts forum the topic does belong [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG] As far as Ki goes yes it does exist. There are things that you cannot see and things that you will never know but it doesnt mean they are not there. We are all small beings in a huge universe...

yes Ki does exist, ask any Reiki practioner like myself and we can prove it to you with a simple exercise.

Hold your hands a few mm apart in front of you [say about 6mm], palms facing. You may need to relax in a quiet place and close your eyes. Rotate/move the hands backward/ forwards or in and out without touching for a while and you will feel something between the palms. It may feel sticky or prickly or warm or even like something else, like magnets repelling or ???

This is the Ki emitted from a normal person's body by the hands.

When I first did this exercise long before I became a Reiki Master I was amazed at the feeling.... now I feel energy that is 1000 times more than it used to be particularly when the Reiki is flowing, it can be larger than a basketball before I lose some of the feeling!

Ki, never seen it, felt it, experienced it, or seen it proved. All the Ki demonstations and explanations I've seen involved simple physics that had philosophical mumbo jumbo woven around them to obscure the real explanations.

"Little Ki balls of energy"

Get real. Did your mind leave when you were reading this bull.

JohnL whether or not you choose to believe in the aspects of martial arts that are not physical is up to you. However this is the second time today that I have seen you trash someone for believing things you do not. This is not right. It also leads me to wonder about your training. Would you ask your Sensei if he lost his mind? I doubt it. I find your responses rude for the most part and invasive to the learning enviroment of this site. It is people like you and posts like yours that has caused this site to lose many great minds. Get lost.

've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other, I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field controls my destiny.
Hokey religions, and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side.
How can you guys argue with Han Solo? He made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, fer Pete's sake!

True but Anakin or Luke's power over the force would destroy Hans. As would Yoda or any other "force" being.

John L. when are you going to try it to check it out for yourself or have you? I say if a person allows for the possibility that something is true then they can try it to decide for themself. For example starting with an external method..a QiGong set because internal takes longer usually like seated meditation. Would feeling the energy build up in your arms ect. and feeling tingling of electricity or heat be convincing?
