Good to hear.

Chi is no mystical force or magic skill, its a way we can coordinate our spiritual and physical efforts in the martial arts to perform well.

First you have to become of your itten, or one point. 2-3 inches below the navel and in the middle of the body. A good exercise for this, if you have a partner, is to stand opposite your partner and get a stick, put it so that either end will touch yours and his/her itten. Now move forward or backwards in fighting stance, keeping the distance. The pressure on your itten should help to develope awareness there!

There are lots of other exercises, including forms of meditation etc. etc. Let me know if you want more information.

Hey Lau Gar you need to try looking at all of the links there are some very nice things out there that search engines don't find very often.
