Chakra?

im not sure where this thread belongs, so forgive me if this is the wrong place for it

what is the link between the Ninja of Naruto, and chakra? why did the creators go with the Hinduism system rather than sticking with the traditional Japanese Ki? im by no means an expert on either of them but i dont understand the logic behind not calling it Ki or even Chi, but i wont get into the "Ninja being of Chinese origin discussion" here, i study Chinese internal martial arts so these things interest me

Neji and his fighting style interst me alot aswell, it has strong ties to Chinese martial arts

@Akatsuki: Actually, Neji's style is directly copied from Chinese martial arts, look below.

No, actually Neji's style roots from Chinese martial arts, Tai Chi, to be specific, the pushing, or "closing" of acupuncture points. This is called "Dian Xue". It just so "happens" that all the chakra openings are exactly in the same place as the acupuncture points. Coincidence? I think not.

The seven gates (or was it five... I'm not too sure of the number) thing that Lee uses in his battle against Gaara also spawns from Chinese martial arts.

So I think Naruto uses the combination of Japanese Ninja from the feudal lord time, plus Chinese martial arts, with a mix of Hinduism? Not too sure about that, but it's definately a interesting mix.

Overall, the whole energy thing between Buddhism, Hinduism, and martial arts seems to all coincide, whether you call it "Chi", "Ki", "Energy", or "Chakra". It's all talking about mental energy used in combative or restorative forms.

Hope this cleared up somethings! ^_^

@Kurai: Neato! It's nice to see another chinese martial artist. I'm currently studying Tai Chi, Yang combative style. You?

Yes, that's my point, the chakra hole blocking thing is basically closing your acupuncture points ^_^

i started out with Shaolin San Kung Fu, did some Tai Chi at the same school, then i started getting into things the school i was at wouldnt teach, Dimmock and other such techniques, or Dim Mak, whichever way you prefer to speel it, i just call it poison hand, i had a bad experience with a meditation called "Circulating the Dragons Breath" so after that i started doing some safer stuff for now, also i train for Iron Palm and other such thigns, also alittle Qigong

back to the original question, maybe they just dont call it ki... because everyone else calls it ki? maybe they wanted to be more original then again, when theres a technique like naruto's "sexy jutsu" its hard to qusetion the anime under real world logic

You're right, perhaps they just wanted to be original. ^_^ Not too sure about that part.

Genjutsus definately don't follow RL logic. XD

I learned "Circulating the Dragons Breath" (I think we call it differently) 5 years ago, it's enjoying but I am OK now. I trained Iron Palm too, I have not fully mastered, but my not completely developed version helped me in the few fights.

He really is a wild mix; although it works. Baguazhang, Dim Mak, and one other that I can't remember, but it's where the pull the 8/16/32/64/128 trigram thinger. Really a great mixture, if you ask me.

This really should be in the Martial Arts thread, your current discussion at least.

To the originators question:
I can't really tell ya why Kishi did it that way. If I could I'd probably be able to tell you when the K-Gaiden starts, who Naruto's parents truly are, and how Kakashi got the Mangkeyou Sharingan. But, sadly, I can't. My best guess is that he wanted to be original and try something that has seldomly been seen thus far.
