another study for you, called:
"The Nishino Breathing Method and Ki-energy (Life-energy): A Challenge to Traditional Scientific Thinking"

here's a segment:

Can His Student ‘Move’ Other Individuals by Ki?
The most interesting scene in Nishino's class is to watch how he can move many of his students at his will during the Taiki-practice. When he sends Ki to students, they exhibit vigorous movements (run, jump or roll on the floor). Sometimes they dance or sing. Since this is such an extraordinary scene, many get an impression that this must be a trick. Some insist that this must be a kind of hypnosis, and others tend to believe that this is a paranormal phenomenon. Not only Nishino, but also dozens of instructors at his school can induce various movements in their students in Taiki-practice, although the degree and the variety of movements are less.
Actually, a martial art technique called ‘Toh-Ate’ (literally meaning ‘hit from a distance’) has been known in Japanese martial art history as a secret technique to knock down the opponent from a distance without physical contact. Besides Nishino and the instructors at his school, Hiroyuki Aoki teaches a similar technique at his Shintaido School. He demonstrated his Toh-Ate technique at the 1984 Japan-France Symposium on ‘Science, Technology and Spiritual World’ held at Tsukuba

It really is a fun read when you remember this is posing as a scientific paper. but how can it be while at the same time challenging scientific thought? lol

Again, lack of controls and small sample size make this "scientific report" worthless.
