Accessing the Primal Mind

When you access the primal mind, you live in a state of pure existence, where stimulus leads to action with nothing before, after or in between. There is no past to reflect on, no future to contemplate, there is only now. For most wild animals, this is their permanent state.

Ba Gua: The Barbed Wire Ball

Ba Gua (or Bagua, as it is sometimes spelled) translates as 8 diagram or shape palm. It is built on the 8 basic trigrams found in the I-Ching. It is one of three internal martial arts. (The other two are Hsing-I and Tai Chi.) These internal arts use chi energy for combat purposes as well as body mechanics and alignment of the body – both internal and external. This devastating martial art is known as the barbed wire ball because a person being attacked would feel like they were being wrapped in barbed wire.
