*Ki* is the Japanese word for Life Force, Spirit or Energy.
The usage of this particular character illustrates the nature of Ki - it is something to be felt, rather than to be seen or heard.
It also represents the seemingly intangible quality of Ki - it is something to be experienced, rather than discussed or written about.
