Bagua (aka Baguazhang or Paqua Chang)
Is a martial art based on the theory of continuous change in response to a given situation. It is an internal form of traditional Moo Doe (true martial arts) that sharpens reflexes and cultivates the understanding of one’s mind and body. Just as Feng Shui is used as a tool to enhance positive Chi (energy) throughout one’s home, Bagwa, through movement focuses the positive Chi (energy) within the body, redirecting and removing the negative Chi, harmonizing one’s mind and body.
Bagua movements, when done correctly, balance and center one’s Chi. Also, through proper training an individual is capable of properly directing their Chi. However, if done incorrectly, the individual may improperly direct their Chi to only certain parts of their body, resulting in an imbalance of Chi, ultimately adversely affecting their body. Therefore correct instruction and mindfulness of correct practice is vital.
Bagua is a powerful way to increase one’s Nae Gong (stored internal strength). Certain masters of Traditional Moo Doe (martial art) use secret herbal formulas called Be Bang, to accelerate their Bagua development, to quickly balance their Chi, increase their Nae Gong, and to more quickly balance their mind, body, and spirit.
Bagua Walk is a special, circular walking technique derived from the movements of various animals. The Oom Yung line of Bagua consists of 360 techniques that encompass many different offensive and defensive positions.
Bagua walking positions enable one to move smoothly and lightly (like a coiled spring), with speed and power. Whole body offensive and defensive movements are used that develop willpower, internal and external strength and balance and harmonize the body.
Some of the benefits of correct Bagua practice include:
- Agility, combined with Speed & Power
- Amazing Offensive & Defensive Capabilities
- Tremendous Internal & External Strength
- Stronger Immune system
- Youthful Condition & Appearance
- Increased Chi
- Mental Strength and Peace
- The development of Nae Gong
