Bagua Zhang is considered to be the last traditional martial art to emerge from China, incorporating health, movement and self-defense, exquisitely. Its round and twisting movements create an unparalleled system for building strength and increasing flexibility. This workshop on Bagua's Eight Animals is a classic and relatively simple introduction to this great art. In the course of one afternoon you will learn: ~Walking the Circle, using Bagua's unique stepping methods; ~Eight Animal Postures, both stationary and moving; ~Arm and leg patterns of practice ~Simple Palm Changes for each of the Eight Animals This course also include a profusely illustrated book, available only through this workshop, which reviews the taught patterns plus offers additional articles on Bagua Zhang's nature and philosophy. This workshop is particularly open to those wishing to pursue study of Bagua Zhang at the Academy of Martial and Internal Arts. It will provide a self-contained course, easily affording several months of self-study for the price of just one month's tuition, and will allow students with this experience to join the Academy's ongoing Bagua Zhang class. Instructor Ted Mancuso is the director of the Academy of Martial and Internal Arts, Santa Cruz's oldest traditional Kung Fu school, with over 45 years teaching experience. He is also the director of Plum Publications, a site devoted to the promotion and preservation of these traditional Arts. He has published widely in the field, including the DVD series, "Bagua: The Art of Change," and has recently written the book, "Learning Bagua Zhang," which has received top reviews.

Over Hills and Plains, Riding a White Horse, Bow and Arrows in Hand

Saturday, early morning, the sun enters and radiates the light of Sagittarius. Three hours later, the Sagittarius new moon (0.07 degrees) occurs. “Let food be sought,” is the personality-building keynote. “Food” means experiences; all kinds, levels and types. It also means real food. Sag’s secret is their love of food. Many, if not musicians, are chefs. Some are both. The energies shift from Scorpio’s deep and transformative waters to the “hills and plains of Sagittarius.” Sag is the rider on a white horse, eyes focused on the mountain peaks of Capricorn (Initiation) ahead. Like Scorpio, Sagittarius is also the “disciple.” Adventure, luck, optimism, joy and the beginnings of gratitude are the hallmarks of Sagittarius. Sag is also one of the signs of silence. The battle lines were drawn in Libra and we were asked to choose where we stood. The Nine Tests were given in Scorpio and we emerged “warriors triumphant.” Now in Sag, we are to be the One-Pointed Disciple, riding over the plains on a white horse, bow and arrows in hand, eyes focused on the Path of Return ahead. Sagittarians are one-pointed (symbol of the arrow). Sag asks, “What is my life’s purpose?” This is their quest, from valleys, plains, meadows and hills, eyes aimed always at the mountaintop. Sag emerges from Scorpio’s deep waters, conflict and tests into the open air. Sag’s quest is humanity’s quest. Sag’s quest, however, is always accompanied by music and good food.
