Bagua Bear and Monkey Qi Awakening Form
Many people when they first begin to learn Baguazhang and often because their body is tense and stiff from training in other martial systems, find it difficult to get anything happening Qi or energy wise; so we have an excellent training method derived from the "8 Animal Forms" of Bagua, called "Shaking the Qi", a set of 8 relatively simple training methods that force the body to learn about Bagua Fa-Jing.
These are two individual forms, only about 5 or 6 moves each, so we will do one each day.
The Monkey is the closest animal to the human being and as such we are able to emulate this wonderful and deadly fighting system easier. The monkey is relentless in his attack using relaxed but deadly palm fighting methods which makes use of his very heavy arms.
The Bear represents the Mountain. He is steadfast, powerful and one of the earth. The bear is ferocious when protecting its young, but gentle at home.
A nice mixture of energies here in these forms, as the monkey is sprightly agile and alert, where is the bear is grounded earthy and calm.
Using the Taiji form, in this way most people will already know the basic sequence of movements, we will be looking at how to get the Qigong elements of the Taiji form happening.
This concept can then be applied to everything you practice whether it be a moving Qigong or and static standing Qigong.
