Bāguà Zhǎng (八卦掌) Online with Master Zhou

Zoom – Three months – 26 sessions
Tuesdays and Fridays
January 3 – March 31
6 – 7 PM (EST)
Class Recordings will be available*

Bāguà Zhǎng is Zhou Shifu’s latest offering for online students. The inspiration for this online class is the success of his Xing Yi Quan online class, which has been offered since 2020. Bāguà Zhǎng is one of the three Wudang Neijia Quan (internal styles), along with Xingyi Quan and Taiji Quan. This three-month course will introduce the 8 palm changes of Bāguà Zhǎng, based on circular stepping patterns and snake-like movements used to side-step and deflect an opponent’s attacks.  These movements promote overall health and increase physical vitality, strength, and endurance. 

Baguazhang Workshop
武当八卦掌 -Wu Dang Bāguà Zhǎng, sometimes known as “circular boxing” or “walking the circle,” builds its foundation from Standing Meditation and Turning methods.  In combat, it teaches adaptability through twisting and twining motions.  When an opponent changes, so too do the practitioner.  Power is developed through an understanding of the principles of Yin and Yang. 
 
In this course, Zhou Shifu will teach Standing Meditation, Circular Stepping, The Eight Palm Changes, and the Theory of Wudang Bāguà Zhǎng.
