From The Pathgate website:
Qi is the Intrinsic Energy which sustains the configuration and integrity of all forms and substances in the Universe. It is the Life Force which regulates the ebb and flow of the vitality of all things. It is referred to as rlung in Tibetan, prana in Sanskrit, ki in Japanese. Aristotle referred to it as the souls of energy that exist throughout nature where signs of life are to be found.
I’ve always been amazed at the unbelievable claims made regarding “chi” energy. A number of people I know personally have a solid faith in its existence. For those uninitiated in this particular belief system it’s like “the force” in Star Wars.
At the end of this video there are some suggestions from the world famous martial arts master George Dillman regarding advanced combat techniques which may help you defend yourself against a “chi” attack, should an assailant decide to use their incredible powers upon you!
In summary these include:
A) Moving your tongue into a different position.
B) Moving your big toes up and down.
C) Being a skeptical about it whether it exists or not.
This debate is not going to go away. It seems likely to me that there must be something in it, I’ve just got no idea what.
The headline for this piece is taken from the first video linked to.
 George Lucas ripped off the idea, not the other way round.
