Re: Focus on the Fingers

Has anyone done any experiments like this? Do you normally train with any focus on your fingers extending Ki, or just do the motions? If you do focus on a finger, which one? I encourage everyone to try this out if they haven't already, I know I'll be thinking more about it as I progress.

Good stuff, try this as well. Coordinate that intent of energy focused and extending in very specific direction with the same thing in the toes. If fingers and toes are coordinated, most likely the center (the whole structure) will be doing what you intend to achieve the maximum effect.

It's really just a method of developing "Ki, Ken, Tai Ichi".

I also really like the idea of considering your practice as an "experiment in a laboratory."
