Thanks Gary, I look forward to seeing the results.

JFTR we have extended Ki exercises and testing beyond warmup applicability and are using both as development tools, both statically and in motion.

Chris, I understand. But I have to admit that I am not all that interested in the historical context that you referred to. I am more interested in establishing the correct feeling required to accomplish the task and then strengthening that feeling so I can replicate it as necessary. That's probably why the choice of metaphor means little to me.

The choice of metaphor doesn't really matter - except that it does when you try to talk to anybody else, otherwise nobody can understand each other.

Like anybody could understand Phi, anyway.
