    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Matt Hughes believes in Chi (WitchDoctor)?

    The Witchdoctor’s real name is Steven Friend and he’s a close friend of mine. I actually met him while I was coaching during Season 2. He is a chiropractor and he is big into the energy that flows through the body and how it can be blocked and how that’s bad. He gets the name “Witchdoctor” from Dana White. Dana is a big believer in him; but he doesn’t understand what he does, so Dana nicknamed him “Witchdoctor.” There are a few people in my life that if I have a spiritual question I will go to and he is very high on that list. He is a Christian and a former pastor.

    I don't dislike Hughes, but this was just another wierd thing coming out of him.

    Well from what I understand, Bullshido doesn't have a widely held belief on the effects of 'chi' in health. Only when someone claims supernatural effects of 'chi' in Martial Arts does it cross into BS territory. So I don't see a problem with the above.

    Besides Human Weapon said there is scientific proof for chi, so it must be true.

    I think blocked energy flow is pretty close.

    I believe it was a blocked Jesus flow, which kept the Lord from filling Hughes' heart.

    All better now though.

    In the chiropractic sense (or more hippie-orientated chiropractic sense, anyway) "energy" does not have to do with chi and has more to do with the bizarre beliefs of the chiropractic founder. It is not asian in origin.

    I had blocked energy once - Exlax cleared that problem right up

    Penn & Teller did a great focus on chiropractors - there is a huge split between those who see it as a method of treatment and those who cling to the ideas of the founder which is that it is a panacea for all ills

    I have never used one, but have colleague who swears by them. I think it is a case of reserving judgement until I have experienced one first hand.
