Cheng Style Bagua Eight Basic PalmsDVD#11017 Bagua 8 Basic Palms

The basic Eight Changing Palms of Cheng style are shown, and very clearly. These are intricate yet fun, complex but lucid. These is a very notable consistency here of both quality and intent. Ma is a solid performer with long experience. Cheng style does not emphasize a specific order. Students may combine palms as they will. Actually this is true of all Ba Gua but the idea may be introduced at different stages of training. This is a Double DVD.

A very nice tradtional series. Special Cheng style with very tight movments with much folding and turning in on oneself. Continuous and shophisticated from this traditional branch. Nice form overall with the accuracy and tone of a long time practitioner. Linked Palms such as this are even more fluid and spontaneous and encourage the player to link in any order he feels. A nice series.
