Baguazhang (eight diagrams palm) is performed as the swimming dragon and flying phoenix, which is famous in the martial arts world for its beautiful technique of quan and the exercising function. It is with stable pose and neat, flexible movement.

The baguazhang presented in the DVD contains both palm and leg techniques. It is soft, fluent and the movement is moderate. It is easy to learn and practice, and fits both men and women, elders and youths.

Xingyi quan is one of the three major “internal” Chinese martial arts. The other two are Taiji quan and Baguazhang. Xingyi quan translates approximately to “Form/Intention Boxing”, or “Shape/Will Boxing”, and is characterized by aggressive, seemingly linear movements and explosive power. Its origins are traceable to the 18th century and may go back even further. There is no single organizational body governing the teaching of the art, and several variant styles exist.

A Xingyi quan fighter uses efficient coordinated movements to generate bursts of power intended to overwhelm the opponent, simultaneously attacking and defending. Forms vary from school to school, but include barehanded sequences and versions of the same sequences with a variety of weapons. These sequences are based upon the movements and fighting behavior of a variety of animals. The training methods allow the student to progress through increasing difficulty in form sequences, timing and fighting strategy.
