  1. Hello everyone! I'm new here and also relatively new to the Daoist arts, although I have read quite a bit already. I would like your opinions on the Xingyi and Bagua abilities of a teacher (pretty much the only teacher nearby) I found. Here are a couple of videos: I'm mainly interested in learning Bagua, but I'm not sure if it is worth the time and money investment to learn from him (or alternatively just focus on Xingyi and/or learn from vidoes). He seems to teach Xingyi and Taiji mainly and those seem pretty legit. But I'd be grateful for any input from those more experienced in these arts! Thanks!
  2. Secrets of the Pelvis for Martial Arts: A Practical Guide for Improving Your Wujifa, Taiji, Xingyi, Bagua and Everyday Life, by Michael Buhr. This book looks really interesting, pretty good reviews on Amazon. Anybody read it and/or know the author? Buhr also has a blog at I REALLY liked his most recent post. Gonna have to delve further.
  3. Hello all, i too am new to this site.. Ive been hoping to learn and practice as much about developing and using my internal chi energies, or Nei Kung as ive heard its called.. The only problem however is that there are alot of people out in this world who will give false teachings/training that will get you nowhere.. As much information and help with a newbie like me would be most appreciated.. I would like to get started as soon as possible!! Just need to know the correct and true authentic, proven ways though.. Ive read that meditation is the main way and there are specific techniques and exercises that produce certain results. I would like to mainly learn how to awaken and develop my yin and yang chi's to be a stronger person all around. Only allowed practices though please. I dont want to dis-respect anyone or their closed door traditions by practicing there techniques if im not allowed to. Thanks!!
