I have heard many times the story of an injured martial artist who discovered deeper levels of understanding as they used their art to rebuild their bodies. I started out my training injured. My main objective during this time was to repair the damage I acquired from too much time spent in front of a computer. Staying healthy is still a big part of why I keep training. As an instructor, the ability to help others reach optimal health motivates me teach.
Ba Gua Zhang presents a way to interact with the innate intelligence of the body. This is beyond the brain power of any human or machine. Every practice session can be a journey of discovery where the found treasure is beyond human imagination. I love that and want to share that experience with others.
