Chi Master

A master of the power of Chi, these characters use spiritual training to achieve harmony between the mind and body. To this end they become masters of combat forms both armed and unarmed, while at the same time honing the mind to perceive and understand the mysteries of the cosmos. The Chinese believe there are six different kinds of chi in the body: Gu chi (grain chi) that generates the body's energy Kong chi (air in the lungs) that enkindles energy Zan chi (between all organs) that is the body's original energy Wei chi (guarding energy) occupies the skin surface Xie chi (blood chi) that maintains body temperature Jin chi (sperm or egg producing chi) that is reproductive energy
