MANY OF OUR HIGH RANKING INSTRUCTORS PARTICIPATE AND/OR TEACH THESE FUNDAMENTAL  CHINESE INTERNAL ARTS OF T’AI CHI CH’UAN, QIGONG AND BAQUA.

BA QUA

There are different styles of Ba Qua.  The style we offer is Yin Fu Ba Qua Zhang Lung which translates to Yin Fu’s Spiral Palm Dragon Style. Baqua styles in the USA are not widely taught but they do offer much for the serious martial artist. Yin Fu has a focus on tearing, grabbing, and squeezing. The training involves a great deal of legwork and requires patience to learn and understand the movements in the form.

You can expect an increase in joint range of motion, leg strength, and body awareness. Ba Qua relies heavily on these three aspects.

Sensei Bryce was trained in Yin Fu Bagua Zhang by Master Qu Hai in the Kun Yu Shan Mountains of China. Master Qu Hai has since relocated to Sheng Jing and opened his own school there.

Here is an example of Ba Qua Circle Walking by Bruce Frantzis:

And this comment about Ba Qua from energyarts.com:

“Even more ancient than Tai chi, the circle walking techniques of Ba Gua were developed over four thousand years ago in Taoist monasteries as a health and meditation art. The techniques open up the possibilities of the mind to achieve stillness and clarity; generate a strong, healthly, disease-free body; and, perhaps more importantly, maintain internal balance while either your inner world or the events of the external world of the external world are rapidly changing. It is also known as ba gua chang, ba gua zhang or pakua chang.”

QIGONG

Qigong compliments the internal styles that we practice.  Qigong can be practiced for health on its own.

Sensei Bryce was studied Qigong with Master Xu when he was in China. Here Master Xu performs Chen style t’ai chi ch’uan.

Chinese kickboxing, Xan Da

In addition to Qigung and Baqua we offer Chinese kickboxing, Xan Da. In Xan Da the rubber meets the road and safe applied fighting skills are developed with take downs that test the effectiveness of what has been learned and practiced.
