Is that the fighting style where you can channel chi or ki to make you more aware and what not I have been reading a little about it recently thinking Maybe about some classes kinda surprised to see this on a gun forum I'm apart of.

By social "Graces" of old world Japan,only the elitists could be titled "Samurai".
Nothing to do with skill level,"Social graces". Money,to work for an elitist War lord or Emperor! We of lower ranking social status were title as owners of :
Uchigatana or Tsubgatana and not Samurai or Katana! Not to be titled with the high honor of the elitists.
Nothing to do with skill level.......! :)

No pics,humbly..!

"CHI or KI" are basically one in the same, Modes: inner peace or battle ready!

A good place to start would be a book called "TAI CHI".
