Re: An exercise that illustrates internal power

Not a bad area to think about, TK. Remember though that there is outward force (jin) through the bones in addition to connective forces (jin), a part of which you're playing with. I.e, there is the Ki of Heaven *and* the Ki of Earth.

If you want to use your route to think and play with, try looking at some of the diagrams of the connections in the standing postures illustrated in Mantak Chia's book, "Iron Shirt Chi Gung Part I". The area you're looking at is part of what is called the muscle-tendon channels and Thomas Myers essentially "borrowed" (I didn't see where he credited them) those channel ideas in his book "Anatomy Trains".

Best.

Mike
