Well, bagua （ 八卦 ） means gossip. In Chinese culture, this words is really bad, and people would not to get along with these bagua people .
I would suggest you ask your instructor for their opinion as they will have a better feel for your ability and the demands or your specific style. Personally I would not recommend it. I find it far to easy to mix up my foot work. The foot work is critical enough that without it you bagua will not work. Furthermore since your practice time is limited (at least mine is) I can get good at bagua or so-so at bagua and so-so at the additional martial art. Since I can only use one at time I'd personally rather be good at bagua.
If you are talking about Naruto... That's clearly Baguazhang, there is no doubt when he says Hakke(8 trigrams, also japanese for bagua) and 64 palms is actually a baguazhang form, the symbol that appears on the ground is from I-ching wich bagua is based on
Ba means eight in Chinese and Gua means diagram (specifically a trigram, three whole and/or broken lines which combine to make the 64 hexagrams of the I Ching or Yi Jing - Book of Changes). Zhang means palm. Thus a "Bagua Zhang" means Eight Trigram Palm, a potentially deadly martial art.

The word "chi" in tai chi chuan, can be roughly translated as "ultimate, terminus" or "nexus." The entire phrase, tai chi chuan, can be translated as "Grand Ultimate Fist." Tai chi refers to the Daoist principles which form the philosophical foundation of tai chi chuan. A practitioner of tai chi begins their practice by standing in a ready position with arms at their side. This position is called "wuji," representing a void or nothingness wherein nothing is thought of, no movement occurs. At the very moment that the intention of movement is expressed, it is said one goes from wuji to tai chi. At this point, tai chi represents the balance of yin and yang, the polar opposites found throughout all of nature in general, and in the tai chi movements in particular. From the two opposites of tai chi spring "the four" - greater yang and lesser yang, greater yin and lesser yin." The four divide once again to become the eight trigrams which, combined with the tai chi diagram, form the xiantian bagua. The bagua is combined with the Chinese five elements or phases, to create thirteen distinct patterns of movement, often called the "thirteen postures of tai chi chuan." These thirteen postures predate the oldest "form based" training methodology (Chen style) and were practiced in an ad hoc manner. Trained this way, the art was referred to as "long quan." The eight trigrams of the bagua are further divided to create the sixty four trigrams of the I-Ching, the Chinese book of changes, otherwise known as the "bible" of Daoism. The "chi" in tai chi should not be confused with the "chi" which roughly translates as "life energy." While pronounced identically, these are two distinctly difference Chinese characters, meaning two entirely different things.
Although Pepsi Logo and Korean flag look similar now-a-day, but they are originated differently, and by tracing the chronology, we can see they are originated from different concept. As we can see, Pepsi's original logo design include a wave-like pattern and adapts 3 colors (red, white and blue) with letters in the middle. And the symbol later on being simplified by taking out the letters. On the other hand, Korean flag is based on the simplified concept of taichi and bagua from ancient Chinese culture. And the white color is not an element in the flag center.
IMHO, the primary distinction is between internal & external styles. The three main internal styles are Tai Chi, Bagua and Hsing-I. These focus on the cultivation, development, retention and discharge of chi. There is a strong emphasis on the use of tendons, ligaments & joints in power delivery. On the other hand, many external styles emphasize muscles in power delivery. It is very possible in the internal arts to deliver a very short-range attack without chambering your arm using internal energy. Many external arts require chambering of the arm to deliver power over a certain distance.
There are many commonalities, as Karate was an offshoot of Kung Fu. The differences are vast! To name some I would say the usage of Wing Chun's forward spiral forearm known as the Bong Sau. It is not at all anything like Jodan Age Uke (Rising Arm Block). Another that pops out of my mind is the Tai Chi and Bagua Techniques..especially Tai Chi Fa Jing (explosive Force) methods such as Pressing Force or Gi Jing and Baguazhang's Whirlwind Palms (Zheng Chuan Zhang). the Shaolin Animal styles and the way taolu/kata are performed.

Mirrors are used in Feng Shui to redirect, attract, or move certain energies. For different applications different kinds of mirrors are used such as round, square, or octagonal. In addition we use a special kind of mirror called a BaGua mirror for extra powerful solutions. This is a mirror within an octagonal frame with the Chinese trigrams displayed, special colors red, green, and gold, and the wood element as it's frame. We use the BaGua mirror to re-direct intrusive energies such as a road pointing right towards our front door, a cemetery next door, or an intrusive neighbor. Simply point the BaGua mirror with loving intention towards the intrusive energy and it will loving re-direct it back to the source of the intrusion. When we want to attract certain energies a mirror can be helpful. An example would be the placement of a mirror in a place within your environment where you want to attract more of something. One often used place for a mirror is behind the stove to attract prosperity and symbolically double the quality and production of the food. We also use mirrors in retail stores to attract more traffic into the store. To move energies as in a situation in which there is a wall close to the door upon entering, then place a mirror on the wall directly in front of you upon entering. Make sure this mirror is positioned so that your head is fully visible from the mirror. You want to avoid having your head cut off high or low due to improper positioning of the mirror. A mirror used in the front entrance will help expand your Chi and hence your opportunities in life. Avoid over-using mirrors randomly placed because they are powerful remedies and can cause chaotic energies when misused. In most cases the bigger the mirror the better but in some cases a very small mirror is sufficient such as when you want to stop the Chi from going down the stairs too quickly with steep stairs. In this case you would place a small square mirror at the bottom of the stairs facing you as you come down the stairs. Use solid clear mirrored glass panels as opposed to mirror squares for all of the applications mentioned above. In some cases it is possible to use reflective material such as foil paper, shiny wallpaper, shiny tiles, stainless steel etc. An example for this would be when you are looking to place a reflective covering above the lower bunk bed to expand the constricted Chi (see previous Earth Star Feng Shui Column). We used to say that mirrors were the aspirin of Feng Shui, but now we have evolved. We now say that mirrors are the homeopathic remedies of Feng Shui! Use them wisely and they will help you to create balance and harmony in your environment. From: http://www.fengshuitimes.com/tutorials/beginner/detail.asp?tid=1&cid=1
The Caribbean islands get their name from one of the indigenous tribes that inhabit the islands, namely the Caribe (Karibe)/Tainos tribe. According to the history of the Caribbean, the Caribe/Tainos people have apparently evolved from the earth and originally lived in caves. The supreme deity of the Caribe/Tainos people is known as the Earth Mother. In the local language, she is called Atabei, and is widely believed to be the goddess of fertility. Atabei is the mother of Yucahu Bagua Marocoti. He is the supreme or absolute being of the Caribe/Taino people. He neither has a father nor a beginning. Yucahu is a similar concept to the Maya belief in the monotheistic absolute being named Hunab K'you. There is a strong Mayan and Latin American influence in the Caribbean. The Caribbean islands are a group of islands where people belonging to different races living in harmony. The Caribbean islands have, from time to time, been visited by colonizers from different European countries, such as the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Portugal and the Netherlands.
Native Americans had no atlases, globes or world maps. They had no concept of other continents or different oceans and certainly no specific terms for the Atlantic. Excerpt" The above has been mis stated, American Indians or Natives of Turtle Island did have concepts of Mother Earth and navigation, they had open trade routs in some of the larger nations and in fact named Turtle Island for the shape which they knew to be turtle shaped." It is a shame that the above depicts a rather un educated savage people inhabiting the Americas. They were very advanced for the time and at a time there numbers reached into the hundreds of millions.Every tribe spoke its own language so there are many native words meaning "ocean" or "sea". A few are: Natick.....................kehtoh, keitoh Algonquin...............kitcikami Powhatan...............yapam Onondaga..............ganiataranen Oneida....................kanyatalÃ¡Â·ke Menominee.............kaeqcekam Taino......................bagua Abenaki..................sobagw Maliseet..................supeq Mohegan................kiht'han Naskapi..................chiihchikimiiy Maya.......................kaknab

The actual story regarding the origin of Tai Chi is quite long and complex but also not well known and muddled in a large degree of confusion. If you'd like to read it, I fully detailed the answer to the question here:http://wiki.answers.com/Where_did_tai_chi_originate(which was paraphrased from an appendix on the subject in the book "The Power of The Internal Martial Arts" written by a master in the subject).My own personal belief is that Tai Chi was originally developed by Taoist meditation masters. Tai Chi essentially allows one to energetically connect with and becoming fully present to their body, both necessary steps in Taoist Meditation, along with many far more advanced applications.This is detailed in much better information here:http://www.taichimaster.com/taoist-yoga/energy-cross-training-part-2-connecting-longevity-breathing-yoga-with-tai-chi-bagua-and-qigong/So the basic answer to your questions is no one really knows for certain, but the range of possibilities paints a fairly clear picture on the subject!http://wiki.answers.com/What_is_the_history_of_tai-chi
The modern version of binary numbers was discovered by the German mathematician Gottfried Leibniz in 1679. He credits the invention of binary numbers to Fu Xi, who he claims invented the "I Ching" binary system in China 4,000 years ago. Modern historians believe that the "I Ching", which contains the "bagua" binary hexagrams, dates closer to the 9th century BC. Binary numbers were also used elsewhere in the world outside China and Germany. In Polynesia, indigenous groups used a binary decimal system as early as 1450 AD. Pingala in India used a binary system in 200 BC for prosody. A similar system was used in sub-saharan Africa as part of their numerology system (known as "geomancy"). The sort of binary we use today however was put together by a fellow named "Francis Bacon" , and another chap named "Gottfried Leibniz" in the 1600s. The full power of Binary however was finally unlocked by a man named "George Boole" in the 1800s when he invented Boolean algebra which brought all the ideas together.
This article (written by a top Taoist and Tai Chi master) concisely answers your question with a high degree of detail:http://www.taichimaster.com/taoist-yoga/energy-cross-training-part-2-connecting-longevity-breathing-yoga-with-tai-chi-bagua-and-qigong/To paraphrase part of the article:The central goal in Taoism is to prepare one for advanced meditation that will allow them to connect with nature, their body mind spirit and soul, and the absolute universal conscious (known as the Tao).One extremely important part of this process is to smooth out the irregularities inside you, make the mind tranquil, and have it become completely present within the most complex motion patterns possible that can be manifested within both the physical and energetic body's of an individual.Beyond being an extremely effective martial art and healing practice, Tai Chi is one of the most effective methods for accomplishing the necessary goals outlined for Taoist meditation (another being Ba gua).Tai Chi was originally developed by adept Taoist meditation masters specifically for that reason, thus is fits quite well within the Taoist disciplines!http://wiki.answers.com/Basic_forms_of_tai-chi
