BAGUAZHANG EMEI BAGUAZHANG THEORY AND APPLICATIONS PDF

All forms of Baguazhang utilize circle walking as an integral part of training. Practitioners walk around the edge of the circle in various low stances, facing the center, and periodically change direction as they execute forms. Students first learn flexibility and proper body alignment through the basic exercises, then move on to more complex forms and internal power mechanics. Although the internal aspects of Baguazhang are similar to those of Xingyiquan and Taijiquan, they are distinct in nature. Other, more conventional weapons are also used, such as the staff gun , spear qiang , cane guai , hook sword gou and the straight, double-edged sword jian.
