八卦掌歌/Baguazhang Jue – Song of Baguazhang 

八卦掌,走为先,收即放,

去即还,变转虚实步中参。

In Eight Diagram Palm, “Walking,” is first. Collect “Strength,” and release it immediately, “Remove,” yourself and return an attack immediately, “Turning,” with random steps to change the situation.

走如风,站如钉,扣摆转换步法清。

腰为纛,气为旗,眼观六路手足先。

Walking as quickly as the wind, stopping as if nailed in place, Hooking clearly displays Turning-Changing Footwork. Your waist is the Banner, your Qi is the Flag, your eyes watch the “Six Paths,” while your hands and feet always arrive first.

行如龙,坐如虎,动似江河静如山。

阴阳手,上下翻,沉肩坠肘气归丹。

Moving like a Dragon, and sitting like a Tiger, “Movement,” resembles a great river, and “Stillness,” resembles a mountain. In “Yin Yang Hands,” when “Reversing Upper and Lower,” sink the shoulder and drop the elbow to return the Qi to the abdomen.

抱六合,勿散乱,气遍身躯得自然。

扣摆步,仔细盘,转换进退在腰间。

Embracing the “Six Harmonies,” and avoiding sloppy practice, the Qi naturally fills the body. By carefully practicing “Hooking and Swinging Steps,” the transformation of “Advance and Retreat,” becomes controlled by the waist.

脚打七,手打三,手脚齐进莫迟缓。

胯打走,肩打撞,委身挤靠暗顶膝

The legs issue 70% of your Strength, the hands issue 30%, they must both Advance simultaneously, neither can be slow or late. The thighs strike while Walking, the shoulders’ strike “Collides,” moving the body in close to “Bump,” hides a Knee Thrust.

高不扼,低不拦,迎风接进最为先。

数语妙诀掌中要,不用纯功亦枉然。

Don’t guard the Upper, don’t block the Lower, just “face the wind,” “Connecting and Entering,” are of vital importance. Analyzing the mysterious secrets of the Palm is useless without the genuine achievement of practice.
