    first off qigong(chi kung) is not for fighting so much (although there are ging/fa-jing force breathing exsercises)but i won't get into that here the main point of qigong is to heal the human body(notice i said heal) by trainning your mind to 'not pay attention' to whats physicaly bothering you by concentrating on your tan-tien/hara/center. throung breathing into and from it(abdomenal breathing) and as such your cerebral cortex(middle of your brain)relaxes and it is like sleeping standing up or sitting down(depends on the type you do)but you are physicaly awake! when your body helas it self it is when you are in your sleep cycle, and qigong puts your mental state and physical body into the 'alpha wave state' which trcks your mind into thinking it's asleep so your body 'goes to work' healing it self.

    Random, pointless speculation, but "Chi" could simply be another word for good cardio.

    Hell, if you don't have the cardio, you're not performing many martial arts feats, supernatural or otherwise.

    Saved me a trip to the library!

    I remeber reading some guys account from around 1920 or something could have been earlier of witnessing monks dry wet towels on their backs whilst sitting in the snow. If this account is actually truthful does that prove that to some extent that the body is capable of somehow producing the heat needed to do such a thing? And thus maybe "chi" is a word used to describe that type of heat?
    Once again purely hypothetical.

    Darting Fingers, you are refering to what is known in tibetan buddhism as "Tumo (Inner fire) meditation".....and yes it is possible to steam dry towels through this, in fact a documentary on the learning channel was done on just this thing, but the mechanism is not fully understood that generates the heat...i suspect a chemical reaction of some kind, perhaps through a release of hormones from the hypothalimus...but no one has ever come to a conclusion.....Tumo resources are rare online....but a search might shine light on other theories.

    My sigung told a story whereby his daughter took him to a baseball (or something) game. They were right next to the air conditioner and it was freezing. He sat and thought about doing his form for a few minutes and warmed up, while everyone else was still cold.

    Heat seems to be kind of a recurring thing...
