I prefer the rings to not be a part of his martial art, but rather something to get the other guy off balance when his martial arts are being dodged.
Not, "I enhance my karate-chop with psionic energy to hit even harder!" but rather, "you keep dodging my karate-chop, so I'll create psionic illusions so you don't know what to dodge, then I'll suckerpunch/cheapshot you while you're confused!"
I like that much better, because it keeps the full power of the karate-chop as purely and utterly an expression of Mandarin's savage spirituality, and keeps the rings purely a separate equivalent to throwing dirt in the other guy's eyes.
