The Eight Pieces of Brocade or Ba Duan Jin are the first eight exercises of the Eighteen Lohan Hands taught by Bodhidharma at the Shaolin Monastery in the 6th century. It was probably during the Song dynasty that the first eight exercises of the Eighteen Lohan Hands were practiced as Ba Duan Jin or the Eight Pieces of Brocade. Interestingly, the Eight Pieces of Brocade was popular among Taoist cultivators to such an extent that it is now considered a Taoist art.

If you don't feel this mild pain at the end of class, you will likely feel it later as your practice continues. This is a sign that your Qigong practice is healing your injury by removing the internal blockage of energy.

Saturdays from 9 to 10 a.m. The course is scheduled for a period of twelve weeks, during which the student is required to be ready at the established time once a week, for at least one hour. Under no circumstances will any class be rescheduled if the student does not comply, unless the teacher is contacted.
While the results can be felt during the class itself, lasting and high-level effects can only be achieved if you continue to practice what you learn at least once a day for at least the months of the Course and beyond. The objective of the course is to provide students with fundamental skills and techniques; subsequent courses and subsequent diligent practice is necessary.
An essential condition is required to participate in the Eight Pieces of Brocade Course, which is to uphold and practice the Ten Shaolin Laws. Please read and understand the Ten Shaolin Laws carefully. The application to the course is taken as an indication that you have accepted this condition.
