Red Hands Show Qi Power

Qi (internal energy) is critical to the effectiveness, power and health benefits of the Martial Arts and Qigong (energy work). Without Qi, moves are hollow representations of genuine internals. One must practice forms correctly to benefit from these ancient disciplines.

See Qi for yourself, heat is an excellent indicator of the presence and strength of Qi. Objective tests can be used to check the quality of Qi of Martial Arts and Qigong by viewing videos of them. Anyone can see the Qi (internal energy, Chi, Ki); which shows the hands turning red. Infrared pictures and monitors show the heat related to Qi also.

Effective Qi raising the temperature can be shown by having a friend watch you for your hands turning red. Another method while you are practicing is to gaze at your hands indireclty to catch the fleeting change of color.

Qi Heats Hands in Study

I) Viewing videos and watching in single action, stopping and starting the motion or view video in single action mode;
II) Thermal Imaging cameras;
III) Infrared in the range of 3-5 microns infrared spectra;
IV) Far-infrared detector in the of 8-14 me;
V) AGA Thermogram; and
VI) Photon counter that measures light emitted from the body and a laser Doppler that calculates blood flow.

I. When your Internal Martial Art is correct, it is because you will be using or loading up in Qi. You can watch Tai Chi and Internal Martial Arts Masters, and the hands will turn reddish just before the power of a strike is released; then it turns back to a more whitish tone. In this case the test is not to have the skin be red all the time.

Since this happens in fractions of a second to a few seconds, it is hard to spot. Those with a quick eye, can spot this while watching a video. This can be confirmed by stopping and starting the video to catch the instant when the hands turn red. You can view an internal form and take the video through a software package that will let you view and save the individual frames of the movie picture. You can buy these, and some come installed on the cameras themselves.

II. A thermal imaging camera using an Extech i5 camera shows how Qigong heats up the hands. Paths of bright colors show the intensity and the color balance signifies the body's balance. The level of warmth is shown by the type of color.

III. Qi heat is documented in an article, Effect of emitted bioenergy (Qi) on biochemical functions of cells, at the US National Library of Medicine, National Institute of Health.

'The 3-5 microns infrared spectra of the external "Qi" generated by a "Qigong" master from his palm was measured using a III-V compound semiconductor InSb detector. It was found that certain Qigong master can emit two opposite kinds of "Qi": the "facilitating" (beneficial) and "inhibiting" (destroying) "Qi". During the facilitating "Qi" emission, large amount of infrared wave were detected by a temperature rise of the air in the vicinity. When the inhibiting "Qi" was emitted, the infrared wave was absorbed from the environment resulting in a cooling of the air. The temperature rise or drop possibly reflects the fact that the blood flow to the palm was increased or decreased by dilating or constricting the blood vessels through parasympathetic or sympathetic nerves.'

See: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1767800

IV. Researchers at the Shanghai Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Shanghai Transportation University that the infrared intensity increased on both the palms and hands of the Qigong Master. When a Qigong healer emitted Qi to a patient, 'the amplitude of infrared modulation at the Lao Gong point on the palm of the master reached 80% when external Qi was being emitted (Lin 1993), while it was less than 15% for non-practitioners. ... The external Qi emitted by the Master included low frequency modulated infrared radiation'. The increase in heat was shown with a far-infrared detector in the range of 8-14 mµ.

V. A test using an AGA thermogram can display the entire procedure of Qi emission by reading the thermal flow moving from a Qigong healer's arm to his palm and fingertips.

Then, the surface temperature of the patient’s afflicted area, although one meter away from the healer, was raised by 3°C 17.

When one watches a true Master of Qigong, Tai Chi or Kung Fu, Their hands will turn red.

Some can see this as they watch, others can see it in while it is playing in single frame mode. Some packages will let you take still pictures from the video also.

In the case of a healer or Qigong Master, the color will turn red, due to Qi increasing the temperature.

The Shanghai Academy of Chinese Medicine reported that when the Qigong healer emitted Qi to a patient, the increase in heat was shown with a far-infrared detector (8-14 mµ). This was published by Gu & Lin in 1978.

Another test using a AGA thermogram could display the entire procedure of Qi emission by reading the thermal flow moving from the Qigong healer's arm to his palm and finally to his fingertips.

Then, the surface temperature of the patient’s afflicted area, although one meter away from the healer, was raised by 3°C 17.

Heat increases of Qi, were also reported in; An Analytic Review of Studies on Measuring Effects of External Qi in China, by Kevin W Chen, Ph.D.

For Tai Chi and Internal Martial Arts Masters, the hands will turn reddish just before the power of a strike is released; then it turns back to a more whitish tone.

In this case the test is not to have the skin be red all the time.

When one practices an internal set, different surface areas will redden within a range of from fractions of a second to a few seconds; as the Qi is temporarily chambered before it is issued. A trained eye of a quick fighter can see this.

A technical way to review an internal form is to take the video through a software package that will let you view and save the individual frames of the movie picture. You can buy these, and some come installed on the cameras themselves.

You can see who have the real power for yourself, when you know how to look for it.

Red Hands - Red Palms in Internal Martial Arts

One must have a qualified instructor to learn from, or the moves will not work. It is difficult to determine who is qualified, since anyone can declare themselves a master, or make up a style on their own. Others will use colorful clothing and uniforms to appear legitimate

For an internal martial blow; one does not always want the Qi on the surface of the skin, it should be brought out on moved past the fist, not retained in it. When one is healing someone else, this might not be the case.

The test is not to have the skin be red all the time since one could: paint the skin, get sunburned, heat the skin; or put a reddener on it like cinnamon or a salve.

When one practices an internal set, different surface areas will redden within a range of a fraction of a second to a few seconds; as the Qi is temporarily chambered before it is issued. A trained eye of a quick fighter can see this.

Both Shaolin and Lohan can be taught externally to karate, commercial schools and Wu Shu types. You will have more students and more money if you do not require that they do their homework. Traditional students would spend long hours building basics to strengthen and prove themselves. No character or introspection is needed when pays for a private coach. Many modern kung fu teachers focus more on positive reinforcing praise, and superficial quantitative progress. Sets and moves are readily progressed through by crude variations of the same energy. The difference between external kung fu schools and karate are few; some parading colored sashes rather than colored belts.

It used to be required that one stand in the Standing Pole (or Embrace the Moon) Qigong posture for at least an hour, in good form, with correct energy; before learning any of the forms. This is not a money maker; since most students will drop out before accomplishing this. Both the West and China are primarily geared to the money making commercial versions of what used to be Shaolin. In China you will see seated actors that pose as a ‘monk’ for the tourist’s cameras, in a mediation sitting posture, outside theaters, temples and other money making events for tourists taking pictures. They will never be accompanied with any real Buddhism, lessons or any sincere meditation; they are a sham.

Meditation used to be part of the Kung fu schooling; most now do nothing but sit in silence, if that.

Many commercial schools will rant and rave about meditation and Qi; yet they do not have any practices or any postings documenting the actual practice; because they do not have any, and lack advanced practitioners.

‘The basic exercises, can be classified into the external and internal type. That with form (i.e. that which can be seen) belongs to the external and that without form, to the internal. The internal type aims at training the Chi. The sitting meditative method of the Shaolin School and the “Guiding Method” of the Wu Tang School belong to this category. The internal type is difficult to master without the assistance of a good teacher. ‘; Iron Palm in 100 Days, by Jason, Ying-arn Lee, page 7.

Kou Yu Chang did not use the iron filings method, and his hands were ‘soft as cotton’.

You will see many phonies on the Internet, with their claims of Kou Yu Chang lineage; but they do not have any one who can do it now. They find it easier to pose with a picture of Kou Yu Chang, rather use the same foundational methods.

Any one showing pictures of smashing the bean or iron filings bag; is doing external iron palm.

Some site and schools refer to red palms or hands; but do not have any internal ability or theory about this reddening. It is easier to call yourself something than demonstrate it.

Qi and Infrared

Infrared Evidence for External Qi

Infrared Evidence for External Qi, By Yin Lo, Phd

Qi is one of the most mysterious elements of Oriental medicine. It cannot be seen, touched, or smelled. Nevertheless, the curing of patients by acupuncture depends on and results from this invisible flow of qi.

It is so elusive, yet so real. How, then, can one present it as objective and scientific to skeptics?
...
Previous studies have determined that the physical properties of external qi consist of an electric field, a magnetic field, and subsonic phonons.*

We wish to present another method of scientifically demonstrating the existence of external qi. In a visual and intuitively understandable way, this method presents qi so that a large audience quickly can grasp its effects without too much explanation. This method is via infrared imaging. I will describe a recent public demonstration of the effects of external qi that I executed.
...
On Apr. 1, 2005, the 17th annual symposium of the American Academy of Medical Acupuncture was held at Atlanta, Georgia. The theme was "Medical Acupuncture 2005: Mystique to Mainstream." More than 300 medical doctors attended this annual conference. I was scheduled to present a paper on the effects of acupuncture as captured by continuous infrared imaging. As I was preparing the materials for the conference, I sensed that I could contribute more fully to the symposium than just by presenting the paper. To this high-caliber, scientific audience, I could also offer a live demonstration of the existence of external qi by healing several individuals, right before their trained medical eyes!

As soon as I arrived at the conference site, I talked to Dr. James Dowden, the chairman of the conference, about the possibility for such a demonstration. Despite the short notice, he still managed to find a large lecture hall. In the morning plenary session, he announced that I would give a live demonstration of the existence of external qi at 10 a.m. on Apr. 2.

Approximately 30 people gathered in the lecture hall. To begin, I asked for volunteers. The first volunteer was a 40-year-old male, who worked at the conference center. He said he had many health problems, with the most serious problem being back pain. I asked him to sit on a chair in front of the infrared camera, in order to take initial, pre-healing photos. Then I healed him by placing my right hand several inches above his head. External qi flowed from my hand and entered into his body. After about 10 minutes, the healing session ended. My hands never touched him throughout this process.

During the healing, a camera (attached to a computer) continuously projected the healing interactions onto a large screen. The entire audience, both medical scientists and other participants, could closely witness this performance of qi healing in-process. After the healing was completed, I took infrared photos again. The audience could instantly see the changes in color, i.e., the temperature of his body.
...
We can see that the right eye initially was hotter than the left eye. After the healing, the two eyes had similar temperatures so that the left and right eyes became more symmetric.
...
The color code for all images is as follows: white as the hottest temperature, followed by red, yellow, green, and blue, with black the coldest. The accuracy of the infrared imaging system is 0.02 0 F. The normal statistical fluctuation is about 0.45 0 F. Thus, any change that is more than half a degree is significant.

I then asked for a second volunteer, and a medical doctor responded. She had twisted her left ankle and was limping as she walked. During the 10-minute healing session, I did not touch her. Clearly, the effects on the volunteer could only come from the qi emitted from the hands of the healer through the air and into the body of the volunteer. Once again, infrared pictures were taken before and immediately after healing. Since the room temperature and humidity stayed constant during the 10-minute healing session, any changes in the photos could only be attributed to external qi.
...
In conclusion, I contend that the infrared imaging technique is not only a scientific research tool for measuring the effects of externally transmitted qi that can yield new quantitative results; this method is a tool that can prove to any skeptic the very demonstrable effects of qi in healing.

The above from Acupuncture Today, July, 2005, Vol. 06, Issue 07

If you watch closely, you will see this infrared just before a strike. You might have to use stop action to catch it since it only lasts for 1/5th to 1/15th of a second. See this in the Martial Tai Chi set:
