So getting back to my original question. Even if the story isn’t true, let’s suppose Dong was proficient at his MA, met a monk who walked in a circle, decided that was a good idea. What would the MONK emphasize? Probably not power, muscle, etc. I’m not against that, but I doubt that was what he (assume he existed) was trying to work on. Maybe but assume no.

I`m not quite sure, if set presented there will develop the same "circle walkin`" qualities; specially for Bagua needs.

The exercises show in the Cirque De Soliel clip are done in the sagittal plane (front to back) where it's easier to learn how to contract the right muscles. The bagua works in the transverse plane (twisting the sagittal and frontal plane at the same time) which makes it much harder to feel the connections. People who can't contract the TVA fully in the sagittal plane will likely never partially contract it in the transverse.It's just to hard to feel that connection.

BTW, that Cirque clip is basically an entire iron vest system minus only the breathing. It's gold.

Have nothing against their set,
just like to mention that I was raking mountain meadow recently and get really good TVA feeling ,
I dare to say better than from doin` Cirque set.
To be a honest I raked all day long, not 30 min., dough .;)
