Like tai chi, bagua has been known for centuries as a powerful way to transform your health, improve your strength, and raise your spirit. As an internal martial art, bagua is unique because it emphasizes circular movement, allowing practitioners to flow out of the way of objects and opponents. Bagua’s unique stepping methods result in distinctively evasive circular footwork, used for both defensive and offensive strategies.
