Great answers. I am impressed with explanations about using Chi. My take on the subject my differ as I specialize on this topic. For me "Chi Power" differs from "Muscle Power" MP= Pushing or Pulling. CP= Movement or Concentrated Energy using the entire body like modern dancers move. Having tension in movement is counterproductive. Tension used in the very last second when striking is the most common thing to do in external MA. In internal MA we tend to get conditioned to never be tense even when striking an object; having said that it is used minimally when we "Pung" or use a bouncing type technique. The Muay Tai kick is in fact a Chi Kick because it follows through the target without using the stopping tension that other styles use.
