Ki or chi is Fire, Wind, Air, Earth, Metal, Ether . . .
The quality of the Ki/ Chi is what the Historical Med. Texts are refering to. The way the energy is moving it can be "blocked", "stagnant", "rushing". "heavy" . . . etc . . .

Ok my thoughts on several topics.

1 physic energy Is suppose to be an Electro magnetic charge that your entire body has think of your mind as a conductor for that energy and bam!! Thatís the theory on phy energy.

2 the five elements are not meant to resemble real forces in nature but characteristics n people like a horoscope so chi or ki is found within all 5 elements.

Not facts just thoughts

If you are really interested in learning about how the "elements" apply t ma pick up The Bodhisattva Warriors by Nagaboshi Tomio (terrence Dukes). It explains that the elements are not always tangible ie fireballs, but should be thought of as a way to "label" behaviors and different types of movements. Sorry I can't be more thourough but its hard to fit 500 pages in one post

I hope not it took a long time to read, but since you've read it as well why do you say that? (I m interested, not sarcastic"

Very little of the information in the book (especially the history) can be independatly verified. Most of it flies in the face of established accounts of martial arts history. If you are looking for something like this but much more accurate try anything by Patrick McCarthy.

Be very careful when dealing with 'Mushindo Kempo' or anything with Terrance Dukes (Nagaboshi) there have been many cries of Cult for many years.

Honestly I did feel like some of the information was inaccurate, especially the tomb paintings he said where the first written history of kung fu, many tkd historians say that is where tkd was first recorded. that and it had huge religious undertones, I just never met anyone else to discuss the material with,thanks I'm glad I didn't drink the Koolaid
