I'd have to say the best information can only come through experience. Walk in with healthy scepticism, but an open mind. You could be in for quite an experience

Ok nobody is being helpful. Let me tell you. 1st of all Spirit energy IS ki. Also Ki is Chi. Pretty much ki is japanese, chi is chinese, and Spirit energy is english. However Jing is totaly different. I won't get into that right now though. Ki is in all living things. You can harness it and it makes you more and more powerful. There are some who thing that it has range, as in it can be shot or fired, but I highly doubt it. However I won't doubt that you can't shoot it either. I have tried for 2 years and I never could "shoot" it.

There are people that "think" they can shoot their ki. I know a couple sites that the host claims he has a couple hole in his bedroom where he did jing blasts. And another where this guy said he did ki blasts on these car jackers. But I think they are all bored and full of bull. Try it. Maybe you might have more luck. Oh and also you can feel it when you want to.

Well, as far as martial applications go, I have come to understand ki as a metaphor, or a loaded term that includes many things.

A good technique will come from a solid connection to the ground, proper skeletal alignment, a relaxed body, adequate concentration, proper breathing, and muscles which fire in the appropriate sequence so that the various body components all work together rather than in opposition. I have heard aikido people describe this as "total body coordination".

In other words, a good technique will have good ki. It's a handy word to throw out there when you want to talk about all these elements coming together without having to list them all. People tend to want to mystify ki because it just seems so much more attractive than doing all the hard work it takes to bring all the elements involved into play.

I won't speak to the more philosophical/religious aspects of Universal Ki or our collective being. Everyone has to make his or her own decisions about that.
