Incidentally, just to save time....
If you look at my posts offering the static-posture URL, a large part of my point was that ki, nai ki, etc., is reasonably well-defined not just by any assertions I make, but by books offering examples clearly indicated as "ki". For instance, there are examples in Feldenkrais, EJ Harris, Tohei, Cheng Man Ching, and many others, using just the example that I offered, so my example can't be construed as a "here's my take on it". On the other hand, your offer had a lot to do with your own perception of what ki means and it related not to a specific instance or definable moment in time. That's one point.
My other point is that any dynamic situation can be analysed statically (which is what the one-legged stance offers us a chance to do). For instance, we can say something like "So-and-so hit a punching bag unbelievably strongly". That's a vague analysis. We should be able to analyse a punch at any incremental moment in time and be able to determine the size of the forces and the direction of the forces which deliver an "unbelievably strong" hit. In other words, nothing ever just appears nor does anything express energies/forces that cannot be accounted for. "Energy" is a term that essentially implies an accounting system because energies do not appear out of nothing and they must ultimately reconcile.
So while I think a debate is a good idea, I'd like to stress that "Ki" skills will ultimately do one thing that is in accord with western science... they will conform to accounting and not be subject to simply "here's my opinion". One of my teachers once demonstrated what looked to me and several other fairly critical observers as being an almost physically impossible feat (which I won't bother to detail, since it would take time). That particular teacher was raised and trained back in the boondocks of Szechuan Province in China, but he had gone to a western-science-based college in Beijing. When we asked him how on earth he had done such a demonstration, his reply was, "Some people call it qi... but really it is only that the human body can be conditioned to do more than most people realize." These ki skills we're talking about and which so many Asians have traditionally hoarded knowledge of are more than "good physical condition", "good coordination", and so on. They're sort of like magic tricks.... you can't do them until someone shows you how, but once you understand how to do them, of course they conform to all the laws of physics.
How can I put this to you Mr Sigman........Do you practice ju no kata? Simple answer to a simple question? No?
