The energy itself

Hara – “The part of the body, usually equated with the abdomen, where the chi, of life energy, is located. [..] is essential […] the hara will increase one´s hability to call on one´s chi when necessary, wich will increase power. The hara is also called tan tien.”


Chi – Chi refers to the life force or vital energy of life. […] is located in the abdomen (the hara) where it is controlled by the breath. […] it is more than just personal energy. […] a creative and active force […] It can make a person more powerful than physical strength alone can. It is thought that one´s chi can be seen in one´s personality, and in all outward actions. It somehow reflects the inner person. Strong chi is therefore the equivalent of good character.”
