The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Jet Li doing some Baguazhang in his movie, "The One":



Here is a video of some Bagua changes with motion sensors attached:

Yes I remember it very well! I actually still think about that video in the post demonstrating the power generated by turning the hips. Very cool!
