Video: Yu Hongqin’s Baguazhang Instructional Video

Leave a comment

I have been talking about this instructional video in baguazhang (“eight trigrams palm”) for a few weeks now with a couple of my fellow gongfu students, and decided I should post it up. The instructor is Yu Hongqin, and it is a very good demonstration of basic and core techniques in the martial arts style of baguazhang. The video does not demonstrate any combat applications, but I have found it useful to compare what I am learning in taijiquan and consider integrating a few techniques from baguazhang.
