Hi, on the original site I found beginner techniques called:
-Grounding
-ki ball
-drawing ki
-ki sensing
-ki shield
-attacking with ki
-basic ki blast

How do I prep myself to begin training in chi or do I just try them one at a time.

Any suggestions on how to start in this catagory.
Ask questions.

I'd say that "Grounding" is the best way to start out. Then, move onto "drawing Ki". Next, make a "Ki ball". Then, "Ki sensing". After that, "attacking with Ki", in the sense that it is incorperated with actual physical contact (punches, kicks, etc.). Next, try a "Ki shield". And finally, a "basic Ki blast".

I would first ignore the ki blast. It is what people around here call "fluff". First I would suggest you learn how to relax your body. Being more relaxed will aid in using energy. Personally I like to meditate before I start my energy training since it all goes more easily for me that way.

Actually, it's real. But almost useless. Its' just extending your Ki in one hand (or two) a couple of inches from your hands. But over time, I guess it may become better. But not enough to do any damage.

    • I'm a trendy blogger now.
the old underground site has alot of pretend stuff on it. http://undergrounddragon.tripod.com/theunderground/index.html

is that the one you are looking at? yeah thats where I started. some of its good and some is not. chi blasts are real, just ask my brother and a few friends. but not like DBZ. I did them at a few inches, and only made them tingle, or lose breath for a second. its not much for "battle" but I guess for a party trick... anyway, yeah start with grounding and then ki balls. then read the articles at http://www.theveritasacademy.net/articles.htm

qigong chapters one through nine I think are good starters and eventually get kinda advanced.

To begin with, forget everything you've read up to now.  Then post a new question: Can someone direct me to some information about traditional qigong and taoist meditative practices?
That would be the best starting point for you.

Well... if your just starting out be sure to read through DD's qigong articles, hes got some good stuff in there.
Then maybe take a look at this site http://sg.geocities.com/internal_chi/ , its a pretty good tradchi site for beginners (as well as others):elephant:
