Kung Fu Discussion Group, Episode 9: Baguazhang

Baguazhang is a mystery to many people today. One of the last Classical Styles to be created in the late Qing Dynasty by the legendary Master Dong Haichuan; the youngest of the Big Three Internal Styles; famed for its complexity & beauty; feared for its inscrutability & power. And, unjustly, considered a fraud by many of the “practical” martial artists of today. It certainly doesn’t help that most of the people demonstrating Baguazhang today are… less than impressive physical examples. Like Taijiquan before it, Baguazhang has suffered under the Soy drenched reputations of New Age, Spiritual-minded “teachers”. In this episode, “Mr Ruthless” Uncle Sickness, “Metaphysical PolemarchYogaMidnight, & “Human Calamity” Maeko explore, in a rambling fashion, the strong points, specialties, & personalities of this fascinating masterwork that stands as the peak of Martial Arts creativity.
