Qi energy

  • #1
I'm not sure if this is the right subforum for this thread, but I was wondering what everyone's opinion is on chi energy (AKA qi), specifically the role it supposedly plays in martial arts and medicine.

Is there any science to this, or is it just an ancient belief that hasn't completely died out yet?

If you are unfamiliar with qi energy, there are plenty videos on youtube of people doing seemingly supernatural acts such as bending spears with their throats and getting run over by cars, which they claim are possible by harnessing qi energy. There is also a good article on wikipedia about it
