This DVD features three hours of instruction on an important form in Cheng style Baguazhang -- the "8 Main Palms" form. It is the first form that I teach to students after they have learned and practiced the basic skills of Bagua, including the "8 Basic Palms" form.
The 8 Main Palms form is full of information - it is the essence of Baguazhang. The DVD contains the following:
**Slow motion and normal speed demonstrations of the complete form.
**The names of every movement in each section of the form.
**Clear, detailed instruction in plain English for each movement, always with an emphasis on internal body mechanics, including silk-reeling, an important part of Bagua movement.
**You can learn as Ken gives personal coaching to a student who is working to refine the form.
**More than 150 self-defense applications from the movements of the form, each demonstrated and explained in detail, again with an emphasis on body mechanics. Self-defense techniques include palm strikes, elbow strikes, shoulder strikes, kicks, sweeps, takedowns, and joint locks (Chinna).
Baguazhang is an amazing and powerful martial art. The instruction on this DVD strips away the abstract and the mystical, teaching you the skills behind the movements. Bagua is based on solid internal body mechanics, and in its most effective form it is practical, and its fighting applications are simple and direct.
