Hey better yet, since the JREF million dollar prize remains unclaimed (http://www.randi.org/research/), go ahead and show me anyone in the world who has demonstrable ki abilities.
Maybe you should do a quick search of the archives and see the list of things that are considered normal ki abilities, as opposed to the woo-woo definition so many westerners assume is the definition, Benjamin. I have demonstrable ki abilities and so do a lot of people I know.

Interestingly enough, there was a sceptical book by a David Eisenberg called "Encounters with Qi" that I enjoyed and which had an anecdote near the end about the woo-woo type qi..... Eisenberg was seated in a chair facing the other way and admitted that he "felt something". However, that part of "qi" is a small part of the overall qi, even though many westerners think that's all qi/ki is.

Stratos,

I admire your interest in learning about ki. But often the answers to our questions are right in front of us, we just don't see them. So let me re-phrase my question:

When your students ask you for a definition of the term "Hapkido," what is your answer?

I think that is true of the majority of aikido students everywhere.
