 Bagua zhang is a subtle and effective internal system of cultivation and martial arts. The hallmark of Bagua zhang is its use of circular walking with coiling and spiraling movement. This gives the practitioner the ability to move and change direction with ease, to evade and neutralize the opponent, and to generate internal power.

 Daily practice will include:

* Bagua and Xinyi nei gong (qigong)

* Internal conditioning methods

* Xinyi and Bagua Applications
