irenew... stupid ki tricks?
 
hangin out with friends, waiting for midnite... and we come across a commercial for this irenew bracelet that's supposed to improve your balance or something.

the 'tests' they were doing seemed to be kinda fake. anyone see this commercial?

happy new year, by the way, everyone

I saw it a few days ago, and I had the same thought.

I haven't seen the ad you're talking about but, I've seen many like it. Raise your heels, you'll be harder to push over. Relax your body, you'll be more stable. I've seen those kind of people doing the same tricks for magic magnets, shoe inserts, energy/relaxation drinks, you name it.

It's the same tomfoolery that you'll see in poor martial arts schools. Simple mechanics being passed off as a magic fix all.

The first time, the tester keeps his hand close to his own body, and the customer falls (because the customer's center of balance is pulled off the customer's base/feet). The second time, the tester keeps his hand close to the customer's body, and the customer doesn't fall (because the customer's center of balance stays over the customer's feet).

Well, I think if you link your bracelets to the ground path and internally rotate your spine with intent, the bracelets will amplify your ki.....AND it is not fake !:D
