What is Ki?
Ki is living power.
The power we often think we have, our usual ability, is like the small visible segment of an iceberg, which floats above the surface of the water. We think this is all there is. But hidden beneath the surface of the water is a much larger part of the iceberg. This greater portion is like the power of our Ki. Only by using the whole iceberg do we activate our full potential.
Four Basic Principles of Mind and Body Coordination
Keep One Point
This is a natural place of physical, mental and spiritual balance. By concentrating on our one point and keeping correct posture we naturally coordinate mind and body.
When mind actively calms, body naturally releases all stress and tension. In keeping one point, mind and body relax completely.
Keep Weight Underside
The weight of all objects naturally settles at the lowest place. When we relax completely, our weight also naturally settles underside. We call it living calmness.
Extending Ki is to utilize our living power to the fullest extent. By focusing our mind and body, we can have a healthy and vigorous life.
