About the event

Ba Gua fighting techniques (palm changes) are based upon circular movements and the cultivation of so-called 'hidden power'. Traditional training involves repeated palm changes embedded within circle walking. Regular practice builds stamina and a strong, flexible body. Ba Gua philosophy is based upon the I Ching (the Book of Changes). Each sequence of palm changes and qigong exercises in Cheng Shi Ba Gua attempts to reflect the eight essential energies and directions that the I Ching describes as forming our universe.

The style is derived from the famous practitioner Cheng Ting Hua. Cheng had a strong background in Chinese Wrestling (Shuai Jiao) before learning Bagua zhang from Dong Haichuan, and so the Cheng Shi Bagua incorporates a lot of grappling and wrestling techniques. It also includes striking and throwing and has multiple weapons within the system including Deer Horn Knives, Swords, Sabres and Spears. It is regarded as one of the highest forms of qigong with its twisting, coiling & spiralling movements.
