Hi !

My name is Mike Strong.

I live in Las Vegas, Nevada.

I've been crazy for martial arts since the Kung Fu Craze of The 70's

I practice Xing Yi Quan, Yi Quan, and little Ba Gua Zhang.

Taoism, Tibetan Buddhism, & Shamanism are part and parcel of my practice.

I'm not a thug, - but I look like one. ;)








I have had to ease up on my training since a big Kundalini Awakening (September 2000), and it's ongoing unfolding...

... I get a lot of PMs from people asking me how to make The Kundalini rise; so I would like to take this opportunity to say:

1. It is unwise to try to force The Kundalini to rise, - I would not recomend any form of Kundalini Yoga, - just live your life , do your practice, and make your body and mind, strong and flexible. An Awakend Kundalini doesn't make you special, or solve all your problems, - if anything , it just makes life harder.

2. If you happen to go through a spontaneous Kundalini Awakening, - and you feel you need to see a doctor, have them rule out temporal lobe epilepsy, brain tumors, and schizophrenia, ...

... and next to doctors, nobody knows less about The Kundalini Awakening than yoga teachers, massage therapists, and new age energy healers, - they will most likely only make the pain and complications worse.

3. Forget about Siddhis, and run ( do not walk) from anyone claiming they want to help you develope them.

4. If there is one book that can give you more than theories and fairytales, it is :

KUNDALINI ( From Hell To Heaven: Wisdom From The Completed Journey ); by Ganga Karmokar aka "Swami -G". She can be contacted through http://www.kundalinisupport.com She is not my Guru,( I went another way), - but she has gone through The Kundalini Awakening all the way through to completion, and I highly recomend her.

Other books that you might find helpful are:

The works of Gopi Krishna

&

If you are a Christain, Dark Night Of The Soul , by St. John Of The Cross might help you understand the pain (and the pleasure) you are going through.



Om Nammo Da Bei Guan Shr Yin Pusa :)

Hullo, I'm Max.

I do Taijiquan, and am obsessed with Jian.
Just starting training again this week, after being under doctors orders to NOT train, for 18 months.
Wish me luck. ;)

G'day all,

Simon from Sydney OZ here ... I blame a Japanese TV show from childhood called Monkey for my lifelong interest in Eastern Philosophy and the Martial Arts. I have been practicing martially flavoured Yang Style Taijiquan for about 8 years now mainly within Erle Montaigues system though I have visited with other teachers of Internal systems from time time also. I am not officially linked with any particular school or teacher right now but continue my Taiji journey through my own exploration - I am also cross training my Taijiquan in another art and while I value my Qigong and the great health benefits found within Taijiquan my general attitude is pretty much heading towards Taiji via the Bourne Identity; I am dedicated to Taiji as a functioning combat system.

Best regards!

hello, all. my name is John. i live in kansas city, missouri. i've dabbled in all kinds of sports and martial arts over the years, but the only one i've kept up has been Cheng Man Ching TCC. i've been practicing for about 6 years (i've foolishly let it go a few times, but who hasn't?) i've trained the tiniest bit of hsing-i, but it's been, by far, my favorite of any of the innumerable styles i've tried. i used to visit the old board, but i kind of quit the internet for a while. anyway, cheers!

The fact that the Dalai Lama ever made Segal some type of honorary Lama just blew the Dalai out of the water for me in credibility terms ... that anybody like that would actually believe Steve baby was the reincarnation of some 14th century Lama from the past is beyond sad. I think somebody needs to buy the Dalai Lama a DVD player and a Segal box set to set him straight.

Hello all,

My name is Daniel Eckart, I am a kung fu student and teacher in Muncie, Indiana.
I began training in N. Longfist in 1979. in 1988 I began studying Ng Family Style. In '90 I started training in Neijia & Mongolian Shuai Jiao. I am currently practicing Jiulong BaguaZhang and seeking another Shuai Jiao Instructor.

My primary focus in my training had been Iron Skills, Shuai Jiao and Xingyiquan, I have recently turned my focus more toward Bagua, Shuai Jiao & Yoga.

I hope to share a lot with you all and learn as much as I can.

hey, y'all--

i'm john.

i've been practicing TCIMA since the early eighties. most of my training has been in chen style taijiquan, old frame . but i've also been exposed to hao, yang, and wudang taijiquan, and a very very little bit of liuhopafachuan and an even littler bit of xingyi. i tend to practice individual movements and techniques these days more than i practice chunks of form.
