And Mike is just dead wrong on that. You cannot generate the kinetic energy by the human body in linear motion that gyration can produce and manipulate.
Well, I can do it. *Sometimes* I add certain rotational movements, but they are more cam-like than "rotational"; and they simply represent additional aspects to the whole of the power chain. There is a linear aspect to the "ki" that you're missing, I think. It's part of the main reason why so much time is spent on "breathing" exercises. I hope you don't think that Misogi breathing is rotational, too.... I'm getting dizzy generating rotational forces to push down these keyboard letters.
