八卦掌,式是本,法為主,重在練。
先求質,后講量,鍛鍊時,樹信心。

Baguazhang, form is the root, Method is the master, especially during training. First seek quality, then emphasize quantity, temper & refine over time, cultivate confidence.

立壯志,勤苦練,貴有恒,始有成。
法與式,要融會,體和用,能貫通。

To set up the great goal, hardworking practice, persistence is valuable, only then can you succeed. Method & Form, must be integrated, Body & Usage, are able to thread together.

先學常,后練變,認識論,尊易理。
測變化,辯證法,見其動,知其變。

At first study constancy, then practice variation, know & understand discussion, seniors will exchange the logic. Survey the variations & transformations, see its movement, to know it’s changes.

造假象,善乘隙,擅控制,獲主動。
精防守,謀不敗,收既放,攻為守。

Make a deceptive image, be well disposed to seize the opportunity, dare to exercise control, to capture the initiative. Protect the Essence, plan to be unbeatable, Collect then Release, attack is defense.

橫變直,豎轉橫,化被動,为主動。
主動中,防截擊,遭截擊,靈活讓。

Horizontal changes to Straight, Vertical turns to Horizontal, changing is passive, doing is active. While active, guard against the Intercepting Strike, if encountering the Intercepting Strike, flexibly yield.

依敵勢,謀反擊,變被動,成主動。
搏鬥時,有定理,無定法,憑機智,
奪優勢,決勝負。

Listen to the enemy’s momentum, plan a counter strike, change from passive, become active. When fighting, you must have an established theory, not a fixed method, depend on your quick-wits, seize the advantage, to determine the winner.
