You may have covered this, but is standing part of the gao system, or are the static postures done while walking the closest thing to standing in the system. Not to say that gao practitioners don't stand, just is it part of the system. (Having asked that, I do wonder whether it matters at all, but someone else asked and it got me thinking.)
Hope I caught you before you left for Taiwan.
I would like to share and maybee ask something.
I went to see an man who teaches here locally.
he had me stand in an hosre with hands about
at waist palms up,tail tucked,neck lifted,etc.
I felt nothing till later that night.I felt warmth
in places and my walkman radio was recieving
interference when near certain areas of my body.
I tried this in different areas of my home and the effect was the same.you ever get any of this activity?
oh yeah the style was I-chuan.
I picked up this signal at 1100-1200 on the dial on am radio.The sensations lasted about 1 week.
Where is here?
What was the man's lineage in Yiquan?
And if I may be so bold, while I have heard of and experienced some fairly wild manifestations in Yiquan practice, I'll suggest it would be a good idea to take such things with a considerable dose of skepticism.
Gao style has static standing practices as well as walking the circle in static postures.
Thanks and welcome back, I hope your trip went well.
Bill, nope, I've never experienced anything quite like that, although I have experienced a sensation I associate with strong energy flowing that wqas a bit out of the ordinary.
In the Gao Ba Gua my teacher teaches, most of the 24 in the beginning are done from a horse stance, though in application it might be a side hop into a horse stance.
the 24 what?
The 24 basics taught before moving on to the 64.
Did you get my e mail? If not, I need Beth's e mail address. Thanks

Hi Tim. Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help you arrange your visit. Looking forward to seeing you...
Have a great time at the camp, and at the wedding. I'll be thinking of all of you.
Sorry you're not coming. Laoshi is here now and I'm pre-sore for the camp.
I've recovered from Laoshi's visit now, and I'm very curious to know how the camp goes. I imagine it'll be a lot of fun and a good chance to practise with people who aren't beginners.
tell me about it afterwards OK
and easy on the cigars...
