Big Thank You to my good friend Edward Hines of I-Bagua who wrote an excellent summary and recap of our recent Ancestral Movement Workshop with Simon Thakur in Cologne! Go check it out 👌

Stay tuned for the upcoming Pre-Workshop interview with Simon 🤗
Hello everyone. I'm inviting you to join Luo's seminar here in Israel, March 12-19. We're going to have a great program: elements from the forth line and the eighth line; Xin-fa, Tui shou and throwing techniques; the vulture form and a linked five elements practice of xing yi; a daoist meditation class and more.
I can (almost) promise sunshine, definitely some good food and good company..

Bagua is a Chinese martial art that first appeared publicly in 19th century Beijing, and before your read on I invite you to set aside a lot of what may come to your mind when you think of martial arts.

Mnemonics for movement

If you have ever been annoyed because you forgot a form/movement or just want to strengthen your memory then here's a little video for you. Warning: it may include dinosaurs.

Memory is the theme for February at Practices beyond style - where we will explore the use of rhythm, space, objects, imagery emotion and also work on how to encode more information INTO forms and movements. Links are under the video.

My friend Ash Banks has written some great books on self-defense. Due to an Amazon screw-up, Ash is doing a giveaway. Personally, I was very happy to pay for my original copies - I learned great things from all of them. I especially recommend Creepology as an eye-opener.

Here's your link. Get in there while you can, share the link and do Ash a favour by writing a review.

Practices beyond style

Good day denizens of Mount Zucker

Not having time to practice is a big complaint that I hear really often. I know that it can be hard to find a good block of time that you can dedicate to your practice.

There are ways around this. This month we are exploring some great ones at Practices beyond style.

The trick is to integrate practice into daily activities. But how...?

My friend Dillon Beyer is sharing exercises and games that you can practice throughout the day. He has spent years obsessing about how to integrate life and training, testing and refining. Dillon is a martial artist and human being who I respect for both his skill and character.

What Dillon is sharing is good stuff or I wouldn’t get out of my 'uncommunicative comfort zone' to tell you about it.

You can get access to Dillon’s games and more when you sign up for a subscription on Practices Beyond style - right now that includes a choice of Bagua and breath practice courses.

I'll be glad to welcome you there - it's like social media without the noise.

Form, perfection, possibility, memory, Madness and fried eggs | 21c Bagua on Patreon

This post is laden with nostalgia for me, but might be an amazing discovery for you young 'uns.

It also has reference to cutting-edge ideas from the biology of perception, a sword adept, some things so obvious as to be invisible and hints at some ancient human technologies.

It also has fried eggs and Luo. Apologies to Vegans.

Enjoy :)

Pupplication and Future plans | 21c Bagua on Patreon

There have been quite a few people like this page recently, which is nice. There is not a huge amount happening on it though - so I thought I'd make this post from my Patreon public.

It's all about a very practical application of Bagua in my daily life - and since it also has a picture of very cute puppy it may well be popular (share, share!).

There is another side to it - a new platform. If you consider yourself an open-minded martial artist/movement practitioner with an interest in the environment - expanding martial skills and connecting to different areas of life you may want to get in at the start. If that's you send me some kind of message.

S3 Episode 50: Internal Martial Arts | Pretty Deadly Podcast • Pretty Deadly Podcast - via Podcast Addict

Sometime last week my friend Susie Kahlich interviewed me for the 'Pretty Deadly' podcast.

Susie focuses on teaching women's self defence she has a lot of smart methods and we are on the same page in our attitude to many aspects of martial arts.

Susie also has a great voice, which on some level isn't important, but perhaps since I recommend listening to her it is! :D

Some links below.

Episode 4: Tai Chi Systematic Review Extravaganza

After a little too long I am listening to the steeped in 10000 things podcast which is co-hosted by Zach, a current Patron and sometimes student.

In the reasonably short episode below is an investigation and discussion on the research literature on Tai Chi and health. I think it's worth a listen.

A couple of my friends were there when the infamous Ma Baogua filmed the video which he later claimed showed him defeating MMA ex-pro Peter Irving.

A few days ago Ma 'fought' a fifty-year-old Sanda enthusiast and was knocked spark out. People cheerfully sent the footage to Peter - his response is below. Much admiration to him for his attitude. Some great lines in there too.

Meanwhile on the Patreon I've started a series of articles on Bagua and mythology, which I was hesitant about, but it's generating some good comments and conversation.
