David,

Did you happen to catch my thread, "My first glimpse of internal power"? I tried describing my first experience of ki-/fascia-based movement. I can do a *little* more than I could then. I've worked a number of manual labor jobs, and what I'm experiencing now is definitely NOT the same thing as normal movement.

So the fascia can be used in a "muscle-like" fashion, even if we're not 100% sure about the exact bio-mechanics. I'm not sure if experienced people like Mike or Dan use pure fascia movement, or some muscle/fascia combo (though I think Mike might have mentioned some sort of muscle/fascia combo).
Hi Timothy,

For my money I am betting that it is a muscle/fascia combination to create a stable structure. I think that the floating feeling comes from relaxed muscles and the pull of other muscles on the fascial tissues, definitely different to normal movement.
