Bagua: Roll the Ball

Here Bruce demonstrates Roll the Ball  a practice that is associated with bagua rou shou and fighting applications rather than with the circle walking and meditation aspects. In this bagua practice the arms encase a sphere in space and the movement originates from the lower tantien and feet, expressing itself in the arms and hands. As the arms move, the sphere must remain stable and not be cut in any direction or angle.

Roll The Ball

Hello,
I forgot where I learned it, probably when Bruce was in NY in the 70's. It reminds me of playing with a Slinky. Years later I got bored doing it the way it was taught to me - double weighted stance, stable, so the waist has a good base upon which to rotate - I started having playing with the size of the ball, the speed of the movement, shifting of weight, stepping while rolling the ball, even the intent, angles and applications of the movement, since I actually apply my meager skill on rare occasion in the course of my employment as a nightclub manager in the Big Apple..
I was sure I was inventing moves just for fun, now it turns out I wasn't far from the mark, after all. Imagine my relief! Now when I practice I have a much clearer image of what I am doing, and a guide for improvement. Cool!
Thanks for letting me bore you for a few minutes.
Joy to you all.

Bagua: Roll the ball

This is what I'm talkin' about. :)

Love it.

In the Bagua program do you get into the deeper meanings behind the movements? I appreciate how the teachings, being presented sometimes in an abstract way gives space for personal interpretation, yet it seems that (for me) to be able to have focused intent is helpful. I love being helpful. <3
