cool thread,
a couple of years ago, when i came back from the dead(literally). i went looking for some baguazhang and luckily stumbled into Chris Matsuo. initially i asked for snake bagua and vibrating palm :o sifu Chris (lao xie) is very generous with sharing knowledge.
i have tai chi chuan and baguazhang brothers here locally,(playful bunch) some are 30+ year practioners. we all have learned something (gems and nuggets)from sifu Chris . my life is richer now than it was before i found baguazhang and lao xie.
live like an immortal
i am a brother to dragons and a companion of owls

There's a 3-in-1 special.

DgsDvd_3in1.jpg

Sifu Matsuo puts out stunningly effective material. I think that once a few bums catch onto his stuff, could become all the rave here. laugh.gifbiggrin.gif

(not to lessen any of the fine teachers in & around already smile.gif )

The standing posture that he is describing here is called "Kunlun Dragon Posture" and it's on the "Bagua Circle Walking" (aka "Heart of Bagua") dvd.

You might recognize the word "Kunlun" from a certain other school, and I would suspect there is at least some overlap of source here. The foot position shows up in Sifu Matsuo's school (not in just one method) and what we know as "red phx" is also in Sifu Matsuo's "Kwan Yin Magnetic Qigong" dvd which is a series of brain methods (not just one).

My (brief) experience of Sifu Matsuo's presentation, practicing and results, is that these varieties of methods in this system (standing posture, limbs & mudras work, and so on) all work together and Sifu Matsuo is providing a broader context and number of methods than I've seen before.

Not sure if you say you suspect that Max is his teacher or that they learnt from the same person, but yes, Max is indeed one of his teachers, as you can see here:
http://dragongatesan...allery/lineage/ (He is named as Lao Shr Wu Xiao Shr here).

Chris used to be listed on Primordial Alchemist (or maybe on the old Kunlun Bliss website) as a Kunlun teacher, but I couldn't find him last I looked for some reason...

I ordered some of Chris's DVDs and am very excited to get started with both his methods and Michael Denneys Celestial Nei Kung.

Anyone have done his vibrating palm here? I've gotten that DVD among others.

Chris' videos also always gets me in a good mood, as he's laughing like a small child at things that come up. Makes me feel like:
:D

Thanks, hadn't recognized Max from that picture but your mention + noticed the jpg name is "genghismax..".

Some of my reflections of the "kunlun dragon" standing posture from another thread:

The other day, feeling the effects of recent practices... hands and feet and limb energetic development. Sifu Matsuo's whole system develops the limbs considerably, various practices, but the standing posture (Bagua Circle Walking dvd) seems foundational and is what I've been doing mostly. Really provides ventilation and processes a lot more easily than the micro, kicks in the macrocosmic orbit.

The microcosmic orbit seems fundamentally too closed in to me now - I can see that the micro alone .. no way it was ever going to process my heavier energies and inevitably would lead to trouble. For me, no way it was ever gonna process the heavy stuff. That route was a sure road to trouble from the beginning.

Experience adds up.
You learn things.


~ edit ~
Add the two mudra variations of the standing posture, and the spine and center-line development that that promotes. And that the whole thing is very joint-opening, has room for fluid variation of posture yet has structure built into it ... it's just insane quality.

And the emotional results! Like I was looking for that in a standing posture?, "*bah!*", but there it was!

The heaven~man~earth prayerfulness that's built into the posture. Given what the posture does, easy to connect to .. fosters that. Sifu Matsuo said, "it's a very old form of prayer" and that resonates. It's a preverbal form of prayer.

The kunlun dragon standing posture is taught on the dvd, "Bagua Circle Walking - Single and Double Palm Change" (aka "Heart of Bagua"). It's not on their website (I don't know why), but you can get it if you ask for it.

Thanks for posting Trunk. I bought one of Chris's DVD's several years ago (Silk Reeling) and it was excellent.

I just went to ebay and made on offer on the Harai Family Mudras DVD. If it works out that I get it, I will come back and provide a quick review.

This is mostly Wudang Bagua, I think. :unsure: (maybe only a little relevant to VP).



Interesting that we would have never gotten into those positions in the shing-yi school I was in. Outside the 'shape' of that shing-yi, which is very powerful for those that get it into their body. This is way more open than shing-yi would go.

.. but I need 'open'. I'm a compact little german body-type and my disharmonies tend toward dense stagnation issues (though I'm energetically sensitive). Just looking at Sifu Matsuo doing those exercises, I feel relief! :lol:

There's a 3-in-1 special.

For those interested in the basic kunlun and kunlun's "red phoenix" practice, both are in DGS's "Kwan Yin Magnetic Qigong" dvd (also contained in the 'April special' 3in1 dvd) - but they are presented as part of a wider spectrum of practices that address many parts of the brain as well as ida, pingala, sushumna and a series of step-by-step hand practices.
