Pretty much everyone who has knowledge of qi knows that it can help you in martial arts. One of the ways it helps you is by adding a little umf to your punches,kicks,and other strikes. I was wondering if anyone had done any experiments by using that same theory by passing there energy into other objects My idea is to add an extra umf to say a block of wood that i threw. I am also quite proffiecient in throwing cards,so it would be nice to add a little umf to that if i throw it at someone. Sorry if it sounds like fluff,even though it does sound like one of the x-mens abilities whose name escapes me at the moment, but i am not trying to make explosive cards if thats what you think.
You can either agree with me or you could be wrong.

Bandit is his name... or something with a G... i forget which... but i would say this is possible...
As the tears of a snowdrop,
Traverse my dented scars.
Cleanse the illusions of lonliness,
Oh, wonderous white clusters.
Dissolve the fetters of blinding summer,
And plunge me back into
My "emotional winter".

-A poem of mine...

re
well, if your talking about adding more force to your strikes, thats something that chi is good for. Internal power is one aspect of it that naturally emerges with practice.

That might work, sounds like a good idea, but I don't know if the chi/ki/qi would dissipate by the time it made it to the target. If you figure out whether or not it would work, post it. I would like to use that sometime... :)
Having been struck once, and object is only more likely to break when struck again; don't strike me.

I believe you would actually need some life in the object to hold the energy. It can be possible with the creation of, say, a construct or two in the object. Among many other things you can also use magic and enchant it or lace it with energy for better use but long distance I'm not sure.
Be your own light, your own refuge. Believe only that which you test for yourself. Do not accept authority merely because it comes from a great man, or is written in a sacred book, for truth is different for each man and woman." -- Buddha

    Muay Thai is perfect, the practitioners are not

It's a nice hypothesis, but one that would never really work unless you're aiming for a more potential goal, that being using prana to provide power for the actual throw. The thing is that you can't use the 'hard' of a card and turn it into 'soft'. You're into soft martial arts so you get the picture.

Also you can't implement chi into a inanimate object such as a plastic card.
I'm mainly a hard style practitioner as you might know and I practice Mukki boxing and Muay Thai aswell as Judo. The only soft style that I've tried and kept working with for a while is Sarid Sarak so the only real simple example I can give that might work is a simple soft to hard punch. I'm pretty sure something similar must exist in most soft styles where you turn soft body motion quickly into hard for power...
I bring absolutely nothing to the table. ^^

The best way to add umph with an object that you plan on throwing (like a brick) is to use Ki to make your throw harder and to make your aim more accurate.  If the object is staying in your hand (like a sword) then you can put Ki into the sword as well to help create a "one-ness" with it to make your attacks deadlier.

I personally think chi, psi, and magick are all forms of the same energy, so essentially, yes you could, but with all the mental blocks I see formed, you might have trouble. The only way to find out, is to do it.
