Title: Trad chi and Rad chi waz the difference
Post by: Rowen of Strata on December 19, 2003, 07:42:40 PM
I am a new kid and i had some questions and i would be very grateful for any response. Whats the difference between trad and rad chi? I also have a small list of techniques and if you have the time you could tell me whats wrong with them.

Flaming Knuckles: Harvest Ki throughout body. Now let Ki flow in hand that is going to attack. Once you have enough start focusing on your opponent. Focus behind them and tell yourself thatís where youíre going to punch and attack.

Halo Kick:
Lock your foot into the ground. Feel ki flow around it, and use your ki to trap it. Raise your foot, and visualize the energy of the Earth rising with it. Kick your opponent, and send all the energy through him/her.

Quick dash
This technique will help you to dodge out of the way of an attack or for just a quick burst of speed.
This is not so much of a Ki technique, but it will help you in battle.

Step 1
Cross your feet over while standing up. If you want to dash to the right, cross your right foot over so the right ankle of your right foot touches the left ankle of your left foot.

Step 2
Jump to the right as hard as you can. You should go further and further with practice. The feet position helps to streamline the air

Ki information scanning
With this technique, you will be able to find out information from a person.
Step 1
Totally relax.

Step 2
Visualize a bar of light scanning the person's body. Up and down, the full length of his/her body.

Step 3
While doing this; think about the information you want to get out of him/her.

Step 4
You will now either get a feeling, a 'voice' in your head or you will just 'know'.

This technique might not work the first few times, but as you progress with this technique, the more defined the information becomes.

Ki ball:
This is the first technique you should learn. This technique will be your 'base' for your Ki training.
Step 1
Put your hands into a cupped shape. Do this by putting both wrists together; both index fingers together and opposite fingers together.
Visualize a big blue ball of Ki.
Step 2
Feel out your Ki and move it into your tan tien.
Step 3
Now draw Ki to your palms, and keep drawing it there for about 20 seconds.
Step 4
Now flow it out of your palms and visualize a light blue ball. At this point you may feel tingling, pressure, heat or any other sensation.
If you feel a continuous sensation, you have made a Ki ball. If you just feel a short sensation, keep training and practicing.

I havn't slept in quite a while so forgive me for any type 0s...

First of you shouldn't even post 'techs' if you havn't confirmed that they work. Second of the difference between trad chi and rad are many. Trad chi is based on eastern martial arts and cultures. One of these basis was Hinduism where the concept of Chi first came to existence under the name Prana. Skipping through history many cultures in the east interacted with the Hindus and learned about Prana. This later on served as the main pillars for creating many 'soft' martial arts as well as different philisophies and 'ways of living'.
Basically trad chi is based on traditional chi (where ever this may traditional)...

Rad chi is mainly 'new age' and is usually practiced by two groups; westerners that are new to the concept chi and go to some half wit 'Yogi' center which has free seminars about chi and sluggish children that think chi works the way that Dragonballs (sp?) portrays it.

The next part of what I'm writing can and has been debated several times by many people, but this is the most popular and probably the most accurate view of chi...
Chi is 'life force' it's everywhere and it functions as a form of energy linking your spirit with your physical. It goes through all of your major chakras and spreads to your minor chakras which then 'distribute' it to the body. It is a healing force and a neutral form of energy. 'Harvesting' chi to create your flaming knuckles is as 'false' as it gets. That goes for the rest of your techs as well.

You're probably wondering how soft martial arts can 'use' chi.
A rather sluggish and simple explanation is basically that they manipulate chi to strengthen their Muladhara and from there use it to 'balance' certain parts of the body for specific reasons.
If you're really interested just go find a local Soft Style School...

A Few Examples of Tradki: Aikido, Qigong (Chi Kung), Taijiquan (Tai Chi), Fajing, Kiaijutsu

A Few Example of Radki: Teenagers reading a few New Age books and combining their findings with stances and such from anime or video games in order to make a "tech" (short for "technique").

*CLOSE*

*Re-OPENS*

Sorry, I didn't read it cloely enough to realize that its not the everyday foolishness that I've grown used to.

Post by: Switcher on December 19, 2003, 11:38:35 PM
Well, whats wrong with your techniques?

1) Corny ass DbZ names. It doesnt help.
2) They all involve drawing energy and using it directly. Its forcing energy through your body in ways its not supposed to go, which will damage your meridians, and make you generally unhealthy. In other words, bad idea.
3)Ki ball: Ki doesnt actually form into a ball outside your body. Thats just to develope sensitivity to energy in your hands.
4) Trying to scan someone is a psi technique, not a ki/chi one.

I havent slept in a while and thats all i can think of. In conclusion, just look into Trad chi. Its much more reliable, less fluffy, good for your health and fighting skills. yup.  :cow:

As a Realm Guardian, I know that the techniques that Rowen posts can and do work in the other realms.  The only reason we are so limited here is because of a barrier that was put up a long time ago to keep anyone that would abuse powers like that from using them.  With practice and training, a person will be able to start doing the basics eventually.

All in favour of having Rikadia's existance stricken from the records, raise your hand.
*almost everyone raises their hand*
All oppose?
*someone with a squeakie voice says "me"*
Majority rules. SICK 'IM BOY!!! :doggie:



Now, back on topic.

Your first technique, Flaming Knuckles, is the most common of all RadKi techniques. Technically speaking, it IS possible. However, most of us Chi Practitioners at Veritas focus mainly on Trad Chi, so we don't perform it. However, if you wish to continue Rad Ki, that technique would work to an extent. I'm not sure about Quick Dash, that could possibly be true. However, it has no relevance to Chi. The Ki Ball, in my opinion, does work. I've experienced evidence that shows to some extent it working. However, just remember that it is purely to the extent of learning to control your Chi. It really doesn't have any effects other than that. Scanning and the Halo Kick are essentially useless in my opinion. Scanning doesn't appear to have any proper logic behind it. You're just visualizing a bar of light across their body and hoping for the best. If I imagine a heap of trees coming to life and just want it to happen - it won't. There would have to be some other force behind it. This is the way I see it, however this area is more related to Psionics in which I'm not too experienced. If you wish, you could go to that forum for help in the area. Your technique will probably be mocked. The Halo Kick just probably won't work. It seems to be a stupid extension to Flaming Knuckles. Your best bet is to just do Flaming Knuckles, but with your foot. Quite simply - the concept is just wrong. Same with Scanning.

I think that just about does it, so there you go. Best wishes with your training, be it RadKi or TradChi.

Kendamu, thanks for reopening it. I understand your mistake. I was in contact with Rowen of Strata through pm, however, and knew that he was looking for help - not just posting his techniques and saying they were right. If I hadnt been in contact with him, I probably would have made the same mistake.

So thats what happens when 2 drunks screw. Just for the record,this monkey :fightmonk probably has more energy than you will ever have if you continue with rad ki. You may think that were being closeminded but hey,when one of your meridians burts open like Paris hiltons legs don't come crying to us.

YES PLEASE MRS L33T REALM GUARDIAN. I AM SO UNEDUCATED AND IGNORANT. I CANT BEAR TO LIVE LiKE THIS ANYmORRE!!! HALP ME?!?!?!?! AHHHHHHHHHHHH

Lets see,

1) People who have a great responsibility such as being a "realm guardian" (ROFL   :rolleyes: ), dont normally prance about bragging about it.

2) Its quite obvious that your a child, and even if you are an adult, i wouldnt be surprised if your in dire need of adult diapers.

3) To come here, accuse people here who are obviously much more experienced than you of being ignorant is proving your own ignorance.

Now, i normally dont like to swear, but all the fluff is getting to me (please dont be angry mods :( ),

So, in conclusion Rikadia, fuck off.

Enlighten us, you of great BS. I'm sorry, but I'm willing to take my chances and say that I know more about 'what is going on' than you. Stop acting so cocky, you need some evidence before you have the right to do that.

The general use of the word guardian is: a protector, someone who watches over someone. So, by saying you are a Realm Guardian, you're saying you're protecting/watching over a WHOLE realm. Doesn't that sound a bit IMPOSSIBLE? Be my guest and tell me how you can watch over a whole realm. Or don't tell, but in that case, take a hike and leave Veritas, we don't want people who can't back their stories up here.

okay...lets start
i think rad and trad chi have been seperated, so lets rail on that Realm Guardian ass mongrel.
okay, IF you were an adult, and you were a "Realm Guardian" (pfft), I would think you wouldn't go flaunting your "position" around to people you don't know. Also, you can't call us ignorant just because we know that your full of crap. Thirdly, I find it shocking that you all of the sudden "come down with a bad cold." lol, sounds to ME that someone doesn't want to be publicly shamed for a stupid lie they told. lol
so just cut the crap and say you're sorry for being an idiot on these boards.

Almost every book, movie, tv show, etc. are windows into other realities.  Those other realities are what is called realms, plus it's simpler to say realms than realities.  Even the ones that are seen as cartoons here exist, just like what is going on here could be seen as a cartoon, but we feel real because it is.
I do protect/watch over one part of a realm.  I haven't learned to use all of my abilities to their fullest to protect one whole realm, plus I have no idea what would happen when I use my powers/abilities to their fullest, so I'm a little skittish about using them that much.
The way I know things are going as they should is by instinct and intuition.  RG are linked to the realm they guard, so we know if things are ok there or not.

I hope this does clear up some things.  The only thing that would be very difficult to explain is how I get there.  Because I am here and there at the same times.  I don't even need to concentrate unless something big is happening or I'm going to a realm I haven't been to yet.

When I catch a cold or flu, or whatever else is going around and I get it, it only takes about 12 hours for it to fully kick in.  I hope this explains how I got sick so quick.  The reason I'm doing ok now is because of cold medicine.

As I stated in that one post.  Almost every book, movie, tv show, etc. is another realm.  There are a few that are too far fetched to believe exist, like Barney or Teletubies.
I won't tell yet what realm I guard.  That will be at a later date.

I had quiet a few friends growing up.  Going to the other realms was first shown to me about 4 years ago, so I'm still learning things as I go, basicly which ones are safer than others.
As to the psychotic part, that is your point of view of me.  So what.

I haven't read Tad's books.  Only have a few hours out of the day to read, so I only read what I can, mostly metaphysical books.  And I haven't read Legends.

As to the drugs question, I take offense to that.  I have never and will never use drugs.

I'll admit I requested a reopening, however, that was BEFORE Rikadia's post. I asked for it so help could be given to the thread-started. That was done, and he doesnt seem to be here anymore. We're definately off that topic now with the coming of Rikadia and his/her (does anybody know Rikadia's gender?) stupidity and a closing would probably be reasonable. A few things you need to pay attention to, Kendamu. A polite asking of a reopening with logic behind it and an interest to help someone is completely different to bitching about it being locked. And also, someone asking for help is different to someone claiming to be a 'Realm Guardian' who is superior to everyone else and all others are insulting that person etc.

In conclusion - Earlier on I wanted it reopened, now I agree it should be locked.

But then again - it's up to you.

PS: Actually, there were on-topic and helpful replies after the reopening. They were few, but they were still there.

No two guardians have the same powers.  It's what ever we learn or inherete from our first life parents, or both.  Just like I'm mainly a healer warrior.  So not only, in the other realms, can I heal almost any wound, but I also am a warrior that fights to protect.  I've learned chi techniques and magick from family that I have in the different realms, so I can do quite a few things.
Sorry to say, but I can't send pics, because I don't have any and you wouldn't be able to see unless your third eye chakra was completely open, meaning no blocks at all.

Let's say I got a gash across my arm. How would your healing powers be able to effect it, and how long would it take to get results?

My healing abilities are blocked here, so all I could do would be to put bandage on it and put pressure on the wound.  But in the other realms, I could heal it in about 30 seconds.  There wouldn't even be a scar.
The only abilities that I have in the other realms that really work here and that show are my empathy and psychometry  Because of those, I can't really come into physical contact with people and my emotions are turned off on purpose.

I am a new kid and i had some questions and i would be very grateful for any response. Whats the difference between trad and rad chi? I also have a small list of techniques and if you have the time you could tell me whats wrong with them.


Tradchi (tradki) is the shortened version for any traditional method of qigong and/or internal martial art. Traditional Chinese Medicine and Taoism (which are the roots of qigong and internal martial arts). though there are quite a few Buddhist methods as well) hve a 5000+ year history. That is 5000 years of studying and hard training in energy manipulation. Radki completely disregards almost everything TCM and Internal Martial Arts (IMA), picks out cool Chinese/Japanese words from these traditions, pulls completely useless techniques out of the air (based on anime and with anime nomenclature), and tries to pass itself off as a legitimate system. Radki is useless and can be dangerous.

Flaming Knuckles: The technique would work better if you simply focused on striking behind (or inside) your opponent. If your strong enough (both physically and internally) you'll get the effect you want.

Halo Kick: See Faming Knuckle.

Quick dash: You shouldn't be worrying about dodging your enemies "ki attacks" by jumping around from left to right. You need to be concerned with closing the gap and cracking his skull (so to speak).


Ki information scanning: Not my art. Try asking some psionics people about ths one. Though you do gain skills similar to this through pracitcing qigong. Psionics is specially geared for this stuff.

Ki ball: The "ki ball" should never be the basis of anyone's training ever. It is only useful for learning to feel and move energy in the body (which, once learned won't be forgotten so the "ki ball" isn't of any use).

I didn't won't to take time to read the other posts. I'm lazy. If I missed something, sorry.

Kendamu. A polite asking of a reopening with logic behind it and an interest to help someone is completely different to bitching about it being locked.


You weren't the one who bitched.  You were just the one who reported it.  Bitching came later.

Really? I wouldnt have expected anybody else to want it opened, except for the starter of the thread, and he was in a desperate hurry to have his account deleted and to leave almost straight away after he made the thread. *shrugs* Whatever - my bad.

Rikadia, are we really supposed to believe that you are really powerful and awesome but your powers only apply to different realms which are actually places from things like cartoons and books etc? If someone was going to make something up to feel special, you'd think they'd try and come up with something more realistic. But then again, only dumbasses really need to do something like that.

realistic? These people don't know the meaning of the word.

Remember that guy who said he was from the 1800s and he astral projected before he died, and has been there ever since, and then he came back... He was saying that he found a place called a "library" and a "computer" and used it, and he was still learning the "new english"... Then he said it was all just a test, and we never saw him again...

Thats not too realistic is it? Then there was that Megaskull guy, with his gardians and stuff.

*hands out more Peace Cows to try and keep the peace in case thread doesn't get locked*

The more i think about it now, the more it makes sence when my parents told me that television rots the mind when I was a kid. You get those people who watch way too many TV shows and they start believing they are real. But I do find these crazy posts kind of humorous to read.  ;)

you still have not answered how you know its not a figment of the imagination or not... as i said i knew plainly i was making up my "astral projections" (well for i time i didnt)... and then i saw how stupid i was being... and can you please tell me how these realms were created if you do know?... how would the authors know how to tap into these realms?... are all authors now astral projection adepts?...
