This guy's video's are fast becoming some of my favorite Bagua training information. Here, Instructor Kent Howard uses various sizes of rocks to explore more deeply the types of palm changes in Bagua.
In our little Dojo, we have a big, two-handed rock we use like a medicine ball for core strength exercises. In this video, Kent handles the rocks loosely at first, balencing them in the palm to improve whole-body control in the palm change. He later moves to larger rocks that require grip strength to maintain control.
So simple a caveman could do it...
Here is THE LINK for Kent Howard's new book on Wang Shujin's Bagua system, and here is Kent's website for Nonviolent Self Defense.
