    Have a safe flight, Robin. I'll be a week and a half behind you

    On that note, I'm arriving the morning of 17 June off of a red eye flight from the States, and I'll be relaxing and checking out Arundel before the start of the Baguazhang course the following day. To anyone who will be around then and not taking the awesome Chi Kung courses that day, PM me ahead of time if you'd like to meet up!

          My father and I will be leaving on Saturday (to arrive on Sunday) to the UK. I'm afraid I don't know exactly at what time we'll be arriving in Arundel, but hopefully it's not too late! I'd like to take a stroll about town and get to know the local areas.

          I've been having a lot of fun with the Swimming Dragon set, and I'm sure the other course participants are, too. Needless to say, the footwork (and the rest of the set) is a lot more complex than what I've ever run across before! At least I haven't fallen over yet. As Andy mentioned, this should be a challenging but rewarding course.

          See everyone in just a few more days!

            Brighton to Arundel travel practicalities

            Dear All, my brother Tim emailed me some questions about travelling from Brighton to Arundel and I thought I would share in case they are of use to anyone else. Tim is staying in Brighton and travelling to Arundel each day and I did the research for him on trains, buses and cars - here it is:

            TRAIN:

            The train you will need is:

            Depart Brighton - 07:15
            Arrive Ford - 07:48
            Depart Ford - 08:06
            Arrive Arundel - 08:11

            Then it is a 15 minute walk from the station to the hotel.

            There is a later train which departs Brighton at 07:46 and arrives in Arundel at 08:42 but you would then be likely to arrive at the hotel very close to 9am when the courses start, and it would not leave much space for delays.

            The cost of a single one way ticket at this time is £9.60
            The cost of a day return is £14.20 so much better. Unfortunately because you are travelling at peak business times it is a bit more expensive for your ticket.

            for more info look here: http://www.southernrailway.com/

            BUS:

            The bus basically will be cheaper but takes longer

            http://www.stagecoachbus.com/PdfUplo...iner%20700.pdf

            It's the number 700 Coastliner that departs from Brighton and goes to Arundel By my calculations you would need to leave Brighton at 06:25 and change in Littlehampton in order to arrive in Arundel at around 08:30 because the bus goes EVERYWHERE!

            Welcome to UK travel... !

            CAR:
            It might be a little more expensive but possibly better value on your time if you drive, to hire a car, especially if there are other brothers and sisters staying in Brighton. If you did it as a group it would be cheaper. Fuel is about £7-£8 return journey in a car to arundel and I think there is some free parking just outside the town centre.

            It would take you about 45 minutes in the rush hour to drive, you would probably need to allow an hour plus a bit for parking and walking. Same time as the train, but much more flexible

            You would be better off picking one up and dropping off at the airport as the brighton offices will be closed at the times you're likely to want to do this. Then there's parking charges in brighton (unless your hotel has some spaces).

                Thank you very much for sharing this information! It's already entering into consideration with our (my father and me) plans on traveling from the airport. It certainly beats walking, that's for sure!

                        Hello Fellow Shaolin Travellers
                        I just arrived in Arundel and it is so "ye olde village" picture postcard cute. I took the underground train from Heathrow into Central London to Victoria Station and changed to the National Rail line that took me straight to Arundel (about an hour). Even though I speak English pretty good (sic), I did learn that its pronounced like "aaron-dell". No buses go from Heathrow to Arundel, but they do go to Brighton if that helps.

                          Thanks for the info. I'll be getting the train from Heathrow via London as well.

                          Looking forward to catching up with my globetrotting Aussie elder kung fu brother (and everyone else as well )

                                Bagua Footwork in Ninjutsu?

                                Bagua Footwork in Ninjutsu?

                                Grandmaster Sun Lutang was famous for when being attacked he could get behind his opponent using quick footwork from Bagua.

                                Did Bagua influence Ninjutsu?
