八卦掌以步贏人,進步先進前,退步先退後,跨左先動左足,跨右先動右足,回身先掰步,轉身先扣步。走為百練之祖,百練不如一走,八卦掌即為善走之拳術,于走轉中出招換勢,抽身化影。惟走方能避敵之鋒芒,亦能使人眼花繚亂,避之以實,擊之以虛,奇正相生,故謂之轉掌。

Baguazhang uses Stepping to beat people. Advance Step before advancing forward, Retreat Step before retreating backward. Step across to the left before moving the right foot, step across to the right before moving the left foot. Returning Body first Swing Steps, Turning Body first Hook Steps. Walking is the forefather of one hundred exercises, but one hundred exercises aren’t equal to one Walk. Baguazhang is defined as being good at Walking’s Boxing Art, it takes Walking & Turning while Issuing Maneuvers & Exchanging Patterns, Escaping Body & Changing Shadow. Only Walking can then avoid the enemy’s cutting edge, while also being able to cause people to be confused.  Avoid his use of Solidity, & strike him at his Emptiness, Unorthodox & Orthodox mutually generate one another, therefore it is named Turning Palm.
