BAGUA ZHANG: HOW TO CULTIVATE A HEALTHY LIFE THROUGH THE DISCIPLINE OF MOVRMENT.

After long years dedicated to the study of Baguazhang, at least I decided that it was time for this discipline to come to the surface in Italy, so I founded Bagua Martial Academy. Besides the martial aspect, my goal is to promote the tangible benefits for health which derive from practice, both in the field of prevention and in the phase of rehabilitation. I decided to start this project after many evidences given to me by all the people affected by many diseases in the joints, tendons, even organic, and sometimes chronic, that, after trying various medical treatments, found their panacea in the practice of Baguazhang. In Eastern countries, Baguazhang is considered an excellent method to keep ourselves young and send away ailments and infirmities. All Physicians, both in the Eastern and Western world, agree that walking is a long life exercise. Actually, the steps and the circular walking of this discipline constitute the foundations both of the technical application and of the exercises for health. Even in the long distance attacks, in Baguazhang the body never moves with high jumps and traumatic landings, but with a movement which involves all joints and reminds us of a leopard or a tiger. The smooth stretching and twisting movements of all the joints and the trunk, typical of this discipline, with the passing of time modify and strengthen the bones, tendons, muscles and skin, facilitating the opening of the energetic channels connected to the internal organs, and balancing the unbalances that may be present. This system doesn’t only benefit adult people, but it’s also advised for our young people, because it allows them to develop the body in a natural way and without traumas, a way of training which is not used in many other sports, unfortunately. In the beginning, our body is hard and stiff like a piece of wood. The usual movements and postures of daily life are the cause of this stiffness. Through daily practice, the joints start to loosen, stretch and twist naturally and effortlessly in specific directions, following the alignment established by the eight basic postures (Ji Ben Ba Zhang). Doing so, more space is created between bone and bone, freeing the joint and allowing the synovial liquid to lubricate it better, and also causing the flow of Qi (energy) and blood to run freely and reach every part of the body, extremities included. In the exercises called Rou Shen Gong (kneading the body), which are short movement sequences created for the health, the whole body breaths like a lung, shrinking and expanding. The body, compressed and stretched like a sponge, breaths as a whole, every cell shrinks and expands, increasing its vital cycle and allowing its own renenwal in less time. In these sequences, we move in a sinuous way and we twist like a snake around a tree, slowly and powerfully, creating such a strong energy that could shatter the trunk. On the organic level, according to Chinese traditional medical theory, these exercises act stimulating the fire and water of the kidneys, giving origin to subtle gases which rise high and wash and clean the internal organs, preventing possible stagnations that cause putrefaction, which could generate states of illness – even chronic ones. This way, the whole body is kept healthy, clean inside and in a perfect efficiency of the bones, tendons, joints and muscles outside. At least, this practice nourishes and strengthens the heart, together with the whole vascular system, and this gives wellbeing and longevity to practitioners. In conclusion, today Baguazhang represents a great opportunity not only for those who suffer from some joint diseases, or pathology originating from anxiety and stress, but also for our children and, in general, for people of all ages who want to keep themselves healthy and, at the same time, to practice a Chinese traditional martial discipline.
