    Bagua seminars

    "Sifu" Ray Carbullido is doing a bagua seminar in Buffalo.

    Can we have someone come here that doesn't do goofy tricks?

    Good lord. Yes, this will eventually be moved to YMAS. No, we can't. People believe that is a shortcut to self defense.

    Giving someone a five-star is baguazhang? ****, at least it still has physical contact unlike the vast majority of Taiji on the market.

    What are the chances of getting Dale D. out there?

    From what I see on the youtube channel, this guy also does ninjutsu.

    Well, yes.

    When you is children, you is very yang. Palms contain the P-8 pressure point (Laogong) which is a conduit for the fire qi which accumulates in your dantian, and spreads throughout the whole body, and out to your palms via the pericardium meridian which runs the length of your arms. When a child palms another child's belly, that qi manifests itself as mysterious red yang mark along the surface.

    (Next time your kids are caught doing this at a school yard, simply say they were administering qi gong therapy.)

    Hence, you were very much practicing the fire palm, fire (li, ) being represented as one of the eight elements of the Bagua trigram sets.

    It just makes me upset that people like this can charge $300 a person for a seminar, while my school struggles to pay the bills.

    Did he ever specify what his Baguazhang background is? My google searches get blocked where I currently am. He does appear to be involved with the Dragon Gate Taoist sect, which explains the larpery. (Dammit people, Taoism and MA have never been a good combination.)

    Here's a discussion on Tao Bums forum.
    http://www.thetaobums.com/index.php?...agua-workshop/

    There is talk of his system being closed door, and him being one of the few rumen students. Not an instant red flag, but definitely reason for concern, if you want to learn a full system instead of bits and pieces with embedded parlor tricks.

    Can someone check out the web site and post some of the content/info?
