Yin Style Bagua Dragon System
This was extremely difficult to get, so please keep it on ThePlace!Yin style Bagua Dragon System 10 volume series by Xie Peiqi & He JinbaoEnglishThe most detailed documentation of a Chinese Kung Fu system ever, the Yin style Ba Gua Martial Series provides instruction in all aspects of this fighting and health system.
In all, there are eight animals.Four are now fully documented: Dragon, Phoenix , Bear, and Lion.
Each animal has 10 DVDs and each DVD is over 2 hours long.
It is perfectly acceptable to specialize in just one of the eight striking methods of a single animal.
We suggest that customers purchase DVDs 1-4 from any single animal to start.
That’s a good way to gauge your interest in the system and practice a small but self-sufficient part of it.
Foundational PracticesThe first two DVDs of each animal system are its foundational practices.
Volume 1 contains standing postures, circle walking in the representative posture of the animal, and direction changes on the circle.
Volume 2 is comprised entirely of striking exercises.There are four different training methods for each strike.
The 24 most used strikes are shown.Standing practice is the heart of the system.
After training alignment and connection through standing, difficulty is added by practicing the same body principles while moving on the circle.
Then progressively more difficult changes of direction are added to the circle walk practice to increase the difficulty still further.
The power trained in the circle walk practice is then refined with the striking exercises shown in the Volume 2.The long power trained on the circle is refined into the short, explosive power characteristic of the internal martial arts as practiced at the highest level.
The forms DVDs discussed below put the strikes together with circle walking to train the fluid, powerful movement associated with Bagua Zhang.
The FormsVolumes 3 through 10 of each animal system show the forms.
Each animal has 56 short forms.
The forms needn’t be memorized so that they stay with you forever.
The purpose of the large number of forms is to train the system’s strikes in varying combinations so that no matter what combination is needed in combat, the practitioner can flow from one strike into another with ease.
Virtually every useful combination of the strikes is trained so that forceful strking combinations become habitual.
Each form is shown at three speeds: the learning speed with detailed narration explaining the movements, faster and with striking exercises performed at the points at which a strike occurs, and faster still but with continuous, flowing power.
This third, highest level of forms practice is slowed down at crucial points to make the movements and their proper execution clear.
Applications of each strike in the form are shown using two practitioners to make its effective use clear.
Each DVD has over fifty bagua strike applications in regular and slow speeds.
length: 15 hours
