Fool. It's a part of their culture, yes. Doesn't mean it's real. Just like religion. Laying on spears? Just because you have seen it on tv doesn't mean its legit. I bet if you gave one your own spear which was super sharp they wouldn't be able to jump face first onto it. I've seen programmes where people have claimed to have 'chi' and not done a good enough job of pulling back the machette on impact and bleeding everywhere.

omg if u squeeze an egg with your fingurz top 2 botum it iz imposibel to brake???!!!! egz have CHI!

Yeah, that egg things a joke. I work with kids, and one kid was asking me about working out, and another kid said "I bet you can't break an egg with one hand!" So I take an egg, and put it in my hand just like he told me to (to make sure I wasn't somehow cheating). I squeezed the egg with my arm straight out so I wouldn't break it all over myself, and it exploded all over the kid, and some innocent bystanders. Eggs don't have chi.
I'm really unsure about the whole "chi" thing. I do not believe you can generate some sort of crazy force with this chi, but I do believe you can have very good control over your own body. I believe having complete control over your breathing, movement, etc, you have "chi". I guess it depends on your perception of what is the mystery that is CHI.

If your idea of Chi is throwing a Hodoken then no its not real.

But yeah, I would say maybe there is Chi. I have experiment with things like Internal Styles, Qigong, and Yoga.

So I would say I still figure it out, but I don't think doing there exercises are a waste of time. Its just another way of exercising.

In fighting terms I think chi is just a "ye olde" way of saying kinetic linking. A flow of energy.

Chi does exist. It basically means life force energy (as far as I'm aware). Whether it can be used in combat, I'm not sure but it wouldn't surprise me. Many cultures have believed for thousands of years that there is an energy system in & around the body. There are 7 main points running from the groin to the crown of your head (google 'chakra' system). Each are interlinked and are developed at different stages of your life. This energy is believed to extend outwards in magnetic sort of loops, that can be focused on specific things, given the correct training. It's also believed work on this system & each chakra point can effect your well being & character. With this in mind, if it can be used to heal, then I'd imagine it could be used to damage. From what I've heard though, to use it against someone in a negative fashion also serves to harm the self.

I await all the neg reps lol.

I agree though. Same as when someone's watching you, sometimes from a good bit away. It's picking up on the projected energy. IMO thoughts are projected. How many times do you see people posting the same thing at the same time? Or very similar inventions from different people in different countries that are totally independant? Coincidence....? I'm a firm believer but unsure to what degree conciousness can manipulate it.
