Additive Ki

Ki can be apparently be added, joined, and extended from one person to another. In groups of three,

  1. Uke 1 test nage to determine the point of failure.
  2. Uke 2, behind nage (out of sight), lightly touch nage and extend ki out to Uke 1.
  3. Uke 1 test nage with same effort as required previously to reach failure.


  • Do the same test but absorb ki.
  • Have a fourth partner test uke 2.

In the Greek New Testament, the word most commonly used for prayer was prosechein, a vow, a declaration, a promise of action, a directing of attention to a thing, far different from the medieval image of the helpless, humble supplicant. Now, the idea of joining with God, playing on his team, is a radical, even shocking approach to prayer. But here is the ancient, underlying rationale.

Sending Ki

In groups of two or three or more as nage, each with an uke,

  1. Each uke test nage for "baseline" stability.
  2. All nage s extend ki to one nage. Uke test.
