Bandar To Gel is an ancient healing technique practiced by the Indonesian archipelago. It has its origins in both Buddhism and Hinduism. The Gelugan has been around since the time of the Buddha. The name Bandar To Gel comes from two Indonesian words “bandar” meaning belt and “to gel” meaning breath. Because the first form of the Bandar To Gel needed practitioners to literally “grip” the metal, this martial art was commonly referred to as “Gelugan”.
One of the most popular forms of Bandar To Gel is Ada banyak. This is a very potent self defense technique, which is extremely effective for women as well as men. It is a combination of a situs tensa as well as an Ada banyak (wing joint lock). Ada banyak or wings, is one of the hardest lock/unlock motions you can perform.
There are two types of terracotta tiles that you can use to perform the exercise. The first is the straight edge or straight Terra cotta tiles that you can lay across the legs on top of a chair. The second type is the flexible Terra cotta tiles that you will place on the floor in a 45 degree angle so that one edge faces outwards. The purpose is to have the front part of your body facing out while the side parts of the body will be facing inwards.
The basic moves of the Ada banyak include twisting your upper torso towards the opponent with the right leg. Then, you bring your left leg back and plant your left foot in front of the right leg. You then twist your torso until your hip is parallel with the floor and open your chest for a brief instant. In order to strengthen the muscles in the side and stomach area, you should twist the opposite way when raising your legs. With a regular repetition, you can master the art of untuk (thumb straightening movement) and yang (focusing on abdominal organs such as the kidneys and spleen).
The second move that you need to master is the situs band togel yang. This is a very difficult move because you need to keep the abdominal muscles tucked in. When you raise your legs, the muscles will be opened up, which makes your body vulnerable to attack. This move is considered to be an intermediate level when you are between the basic Terra cotta moves and the second move in the juga (turban). If you want to achieve better results in your performance, you can use a thicker abdomen belt or perform a full exercise that has been incorporated in your Baguazhang training.
Last but not the least, the third move that you need to master is the di situs band togel tercaya yang. This is also considered as the second move in the second level of the juga. To make it more difficult, you have to raise your legs while bending the knees. It is also known as the third step in the process of the “punctuation” of the Baguazhang movement.
