After all your schooling in our previous discussions, I did go look up Sam Chin (or is it Chinn?) Very intersting that his home page defines ki in almost the same terms I use. You might want to review that.
Except for the fact that he doesn't actually describe the body mechanics in those terms when he teaches.

Of course, in bagua, "the palm" is the whole arm and, ultimately, the whole body.
Wow, for once we might be in agreement ??!
And by whole arm, I'd specify the "whole arm" as it relates to both arms, and not singular arm that is delivering the strike.
But those discussions would probably derail this thread.

Nice post David.
