More About Introduction to BaGua Zhang with Master Fukui Yang & Rick Barrett

Ba Gua Zhang (Pakua Chang) is an exquisitely beautiful and powerfully effective Chinese internal martial art that emphasizes spiral movements, graceful footwork, and whole-body energetic connection. Regular practice develops grace, flexibility, agility, and internal power while also cultivating a calm, focused mind.

The spiraling energies of baguazhang are unique and are an effective complement to the other two principle Chinese internal martial arts, taijiquan and xingyiquan. It relies on open hand techniques rather than fists, and uses spinning, turning, and change of direction to evade and misdirect rather than clash with an adversary. It is said that it was designed to fight up to eight opponents at a time.

Bagua derives its name from the “Eight Trigrams” of the Daoist classic, Yijing (I Ching, or Book of Changes). Few teachers are as able to impart its mysteries quite so effectively as Master Yang Fukui. He joyfully shares his deep understanding of Chinese martial arts, medicine, and philosophy, learned initially from his grandfather and great-granduncle and continued throughout a life of exploration and study.
