I've read books, asked others, and even tried some of those funky little experiments to try and see whether chi exists or not!

I'm trying to be open-minded but its driving me insane, it seems like every other source the opinion is different. One claims it exists, the other claims it doesn't. One claims you can focus more and break boards with it, the other claims you can heal, move people, and increase strength with energy.
Nothing is constant!

anyway now that i'm done complaining here's my question. Any of you know a good chi kung, reiki, or any other chi style book, website, or even instructor (i live in CA long beach) that could give me some kind of idea of what this stuff is about!

I hate not knowing or understanding something THAT crucial in martial arts. [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/eek.gif[/IMG]

Here's a link you may want to investigate http://www.geocities.com/fascin8or/reiki_101.html

It will send you to a good reiki 101 guide. From there you can decide where else you need to go.

I'm sorry I can't help you in person as I'm on the other side of the world to you, however if you want more help just ask. [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif[/IMG]

I'm a Reiki Master and can answer most reiki type questions. To personally experience reiki you will need to find a local reiki practioner and have a session with them.

Budo

Looking for a constant? Wow your in for a wild goose chase on that one.

Instead of finding a constant, why not look for the theory YOU are most comfortable with?

There are certain constants.

There are just different names for the same thing.

Study hard and find your own connections.

Budo.

Good advice from the judderman........

mate, it's all up to you how you study and what you believe in.

At our National Grading in the weekend Lance Strong [founder of our Kiaido Ryu system] announced he is moving to USA to follow on with his career over there. He is intending setting up dojos in different areas and I'd recommend you check them out. We have dojos in Australia & the UK as well as all over NZ.

Key elements in our system cover internal arts such as qi gong and reiki.

just a small update...

i started trying to find an idea i'm comfortable with and ended up joining a taichi/qi gong school. We did one of those holding hands in front of yourself palms facing slightly apart exercises (sorry i don't know how else to describe it). At first i didn't expect anything but a little into it i felt that strange feeling (like two magnets pushing away from each other) that has been described on this website.

This is a good start.

Don't worry about what to call it. This only leads to arguements.

Use it and be happy with it.

It's all personal to you.

Budo.

I have a question. Does pushing hands have anything to do with chi I tried something similar but didn't feel anything.
