    Beginners BaGua 3 Week Course

    Posted on Sunday, March 20, 2016 at 7:44 AM by Sifu TW Smith the site author">Sifu TW Smith

    Ba Gua Beginners Workshop

    tibetan kungfu beach bagua workshop Ba Gua is an excellent art for any pursuit of Martial Art training.
    It is an art that I have personally seen people:

    Lose 50-60 lbs of weight

    Recover and heal from Post Cardiac By-Pass Surgery

    Use as the Fundamental Core of their Mindfulness Meditation Program

    Establish a practice that promotes centering and calmness

    Improve balance and flexibility

    Deliver spectacular presentations of kungfu skill

    Use the Sound Biomechanics and Strategy to build and supplement a Practical Combat Martial Art

    During the Beginners Bagua Course, you will learn and practice the fundamentals postures, motions and understanding of BaGua. Each class will walk you through the very basics of Bagua, step by step, so that by the end of the 3 weeks you will have a core group of BaGua QiGong Exercises and a Bagua Form to work on.

    When Dave received his audio of his Workshop Recordings, here is what he said:

    "Sifu, thanks! Neat to revisit the class and hear some of the key stuff again. Helps this old dog learn the new tricks. Send more anytime!"

    What have recent participants said?

    Email: "Good morning, Sifu.

    Thank you for the bagua workshop Saturday. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and found the kwoon to be very welcoming. I would love to learn more and am interested in the monthly walk as a continued course or training following the bagua workshop. This is a great idea, as the workshop definitely piqued my interest. I also am interested in the private/family lessons in the future.

    I also would like to register for the beginner tai chi workshop you have for August.

    Thanks again for all you, Dwight, and Kat provided in making Saturday's workshop a beautiful experience. I look forward to learning more and returning soon.

    Enjoy the day!
