However movement with ki or kokyu is not just simple movement. It's the mind and body moving in unison.
How about when someone warms up the palm of his hand by using biofeedback training and imagining his hand being in warm sand... isn't that mind/body coordination? Generally speaking, mind-body coordination means to me that you're learning to control things *with your mind*, i.e., voluntarily, functions of the body that are not normally voluntarily controlled. Moving with kokyu (as a manifestation of ki) is, in my opinion, one of a number of things you can train yourself to do... and from there practice it until it becomes a skill.

My opinion, FWIW.
