All Students & IAI Instructors  are invited to participate in two intensive days of training in Ba Gua & Xing Yi!

Training intensively as a group helps raise everyone’s level of ability while bringing us together to share insights and practice the arts we love with other practitioners and instructors. The late, great Li Zi Ming said that several years research and training with one’s peers is the key to mastering the art.
