Bryan, Peter more or less nailed it. The term messes with people's heads in a really bad way.
I've got a TKD guy in my town who supposedly heals cancer in horses with his ki powers. I wonder where he got the idea? What about beams of light from someone's forehead? I heard that one from a shihan. What about no-touch pins and throws from 10 feet away? In the early 90's I could have shown you a fellow doing that all day long with his powerful ki. I could go on, and on, and on, and on....
When you use the word ki, and you aren't extremely careful, you can wind up with people thinking all kinds of BS.
