since the kirlian photography point is put to rest...

I do encourage you looking into scientific 'discovery' and method. Finding out more about 'synaptic communication' and neurology in general, is a particularly good one, since at the same time of doing so, you are increasing it's power right within your own noggin.

For those looking at understanding the brain this book is a brilliant place to start looking and it is as cheap as chips:

Well not to sure if is put to rest yet, on hold at least.
The synapse thing will take some time to absorb. The chi thing well Im still sitting on the fence.

One thing that I do find interesting is the seemingly lack of internal arts/hsing I, bagau and tai chi practioners in this conversation. It would be interesting to hear their thoughts on this subject. At the same time I would like to discuss their or even anybody elses methods of physical training such as rooting spirelling and the techniques they have for grabbing and pulling etc. I grab and pull. Muscle strength and off balanceing. Internal arts seem to root, grab and spirall. Different way of doing things.

What can you do with it once you've developed chi?



Live with it.
Seriously, what do you anticipate being able to 'do' with chi?
You doubt the authenticity of the 1" punch because why? Do you think that it has something to do with chi? Do you think that it takes chi to "bash bricks"?

The only way to really even try and understand what chi is to find a teacher in Bagua, Tai Chi or Xing Yi or some other form of practice wherein the is a emphasis on inter mind/body integration.




Hi Chris. Im afraid that is easier said than done. There are teachers even chinese teachers who teach
seemingly incorrectly in comparison to when I look on you tube/google video at guys who make sense to me.

I havent done any phsical study Ed. But I have no wish to study with a teacher who doesnt know themselves what is right or wrong and later have to undo wrong technique. I would like to study with some one that knows what they are doing from day one. Just to find any teacher of hsing i or bagau in the area I live in, in the Uk, is proving difficult. I have asked tai chi teachers and they will only teach the elderly the forms with seemingly no thought to combat, in fact they have refused to teach people like me.

I trained with a lau gar guy and forget it. Its not what I want.
I know nothing about I.M.A other than what I have seen on video and read about. What I do feel is when I watch guys like sifu rudy as per the video ( who I feel I would like to study with but he lives in New York) then I observe other teachers and read comments then I think there are a some bogus teachers. These I dont wish to study with.

Just a foot note. If anybody knows of teachers in the North of England, Doncaster or above then please let me know where they are.I would travel.

Hello Wristtwister:



An excellent question... maybe there were other "physical signs" that if we were told/shown what to look for ?
