    I will be moving to Florida when I am finished with my masters program in acupuncture and herbal medicine.

    I will be done in 2011 or early 2012.

    Circle walking also helps develop Iron Body if done slowly and in a particular manner. Hence many Baguazhang people are known for being able to absorb abnormal amounts of abuse.

    I do not practice Iron Vest much anymore as intense Baguazhang training will develop it as well.

    Cool, it will be good to see you down here.

    In addition to what Dale just said (develop the iron body) our style develops what my teacher calls "Ba Zi", and area of the forearm near the wrist. This area, over time, becomes like steel and can be used to break the bones or seriously injure your opponent.

    Interested in circle walking yet??

    This thread would be so different if it was titled, " Attention street walkers".

However, I lived in the DFW are for nearly 20 years (having studied 10 of those 20 years) and I can attest that there are other Bagua teachers and practitioners in the area who are skilled as well. I believe that "devine status" is somewhat of an overstatement.

    I guess that it all boils down to whom you know or whom you do not know.

    I have studied Xing I in the Plano area.
    Can you recommend a few Bagua teachers. You can PM me if that is required.

    Will Iron Body hinder the type of soft body movement required of Tai Chi?

    yes... you will never be able to move gracefully and if you stop practicing you will begin to rust away into nothing.

    Real Taiji is not soft nor is it hard, it is that middle path between the two.

    You cannot pulse using Jing energy while being soft.

    Iron Body does not affect any internal system but can only add to it.

    Not that it was meant to be like there are no other teachers.

    Dr. Painter is well known by many.

    My advice is to go see and participate in classes and see if you actually like the flavor of Baguazhang that is being taught by different people. find the one you like and learn it fully.

    OK, I'll rephrase. The 3 major internal styles seems to each develop a different kind of physical body. Do you see this as the case?

    not so much.

    All 3 develop ways to use the entire body as a whole to create power, of course this is done through their styles flavor for lack of a better word.

    I have been exposed to all 3 and like Baguazhang first, Xingyiquan second and Taijiquan third.

    Using listening skills and softness are concepts of Taijiquan but hitting someone and causing damage is not soft, nor can it be soft.

    I agree with Dale here...

    Have a look at my teacher:
    http://www.youtube.com/user/BaguaBill#p/u/4/tvU-pfVH5TQ

    Contrast with BKF:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Na5-yjetsIM

    Different styles, different basics, different body development different theory, but all bagua.

    I have been exposed to all 3 and like Baguazhang first, Xingyiquan second and Taijiquan third.
    Also agree

    When someone is very good, they don't have to move, you see it in their presence.
