Ba Gua Zhang • Eight Trigram Palm
Develop footwork tactics, strength and inner connectivity
BaguaZhang is well known for its adaptabilty in combat and its highly developed footwork. It is known as the third great internal system (the other two being XingYiQuan and Taijiquan). BaguaZhang’s training is largely done whilst walking in special way in a circle to develop footwork tactics, strength and inner connectivity. Short fluid turns are done to entrain particular flows (rather then techniques) which make up the essence of combatative change. We teach from both Cheng Ting Hua and Ma Wei Qi lineages. The practice of Bagua helps us bring a smoothness and changability to our tactics.
We also have a Chen Taijiquan and Qigong Class available separately with an emphasis on health development.
