We’ve all thought about it, I don’t give a crap if you say otherwise, you’re full of poop. “How to fly like DBZ”, I’m sure you’ve thought about this before if you’re a Dragon Ball Z fan. I’m not talking just one or two episodes, you need more than that to be considered a part of this club.
You might’ve even Google searched it before. If you did, what you found was most likely disappointing and lame, unlike the information that you’re going to receive here today. Because I’m here to tell you, yes, yes it is possible to fly like they do in Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Dragon Ball GT (we don’t talk about this here), and Dragon Ball Super (we don’t talk much about this either, yuck).
Remember that scene in Dragon Ball Z where Mr. Satan was trying to fly after witnessing his only daughter pull it off in the world martial arts stadium.
Just because he failed doesn’t mean that we can’t succeed. Maybe he wasn’t using the proper technique, maybe he’s just a noob. He didn’t even have a flight trainer, so it really makes sense that he fell to the ground like a ton of bricks. We have the benefit of examining Gohan sensei’s lessons that he gave to Videl. Little does Mr. Satan know, you must have a basic understanding of inner ki before attempting to fly. Duh.
So… How to Fly like DBZ?
One of my deepest and most philosophical values is “almost anything is possible, if you work hard enough”. Can we fly like in DBZ? Probably. Let’s do this together and share our results in the comments down below. Note: you can comment as a guest and don’t need to make an account. We’ll make a list of what we need to start our flying lessons.
What You’ll Need
- A brain: We’ll need to secure a brain before attempting to fly. Without consciousness or cognitive function, it’ll be a challenge. But with our brain, we’ll be able to perform all the necessary steps to be zipping around the skies like Goten.
- Freedom of movement: Before we begin the flight training, you’ll want to make sure that you have enough space for liftoff. The last thing we want to happen is for you to be such a natural at flying that you smash your head into the ceiling and end up in the hospital.
- The desire to fly like in Dragon Ball: You can’t do this without the will and the desire. It’s like therapy, it won’t have any effect if you go into it with a doubtful mindset. Mr. Satan had the right mindset, but was just lacking the correct tools.
- Inner ki: As we all know, there is power hidden deep within us, we just have to grab it and pull it out. If anime has taught us anything, it’s that if we start muscle training, we’ll be able to shoot beams out of our hands in no time. Jokes aside, we will need to locate our inner ki to make progress in our DBZ flying lessons.
Let’s do it. You might be asking… “Cross, how the heck do you have the credentials to be teaching us how to fly like in Dragon Ball Z?”. “Can you even fly?”. I have done multiple flying training sessions while following Gohan’s lessons. At first, I got nowhere. And then it happened, I felt my body become much lighter than usual and for a brief moment I was defying gravity as I was no longer touching the Earth. The only, problem is, I can’t remember if that was a dream or not.
Oh, well. Sit on the ground in a cross-legged position.
Feel out your inner ki. You will have to search for this with your mind and body at the same time; you’ll know when you find it. It’ll be like some sort of revelation, “oh wow where has this been my whole life”. Kinda like that. It’s normal for this to take an hour or so of meditating.
Now get excited, you just dipped your toes into the Dragon Ball universe. Think about it though, if Yamcha has ki, you must surely have it as well. Go brag on the internet a little bit.
Bring your ki out of your body. This part can easily take multiple sessions of practice. Just try not to cut your training sessions short, go at it for at least 45 minutes. You want to separate your ki from your body and bring it out in front of your chest. Note that you won’t be able to see it, but you will have the feeling that it is right in front of you.
Put your ki beneath you to defy gravity. Now that you have more control over your ki, you can attempt to relocate it. You can do this while sitting, or standing, or lying down, or upside down, whatever, it doesn’t matter. I prefer to do it while sitting down in a cross-legged position. If in this position, try to direct your ki underneath your butt and your legs. You want to push your ki outside of your body and in-between the ground and yourself.
Fly. Move any amount of distance with your new mastery of ki. Now you have technically flown and this is groundbreaking stuff. At the very minimum, you have obtained an insane party-trick. At the most, you’ve become a top-secret government experiment and lab rat. If it’s the latter, I’m sorry. Anyways, thanks for reading and use this newfound power however you see fit.
Have an amazing day <3
