He is young and powerful. And the overall presentation is quite well done with nice production and clear movement. Chang Lung is a handsome, talented performer and the BaJi form is worth a look.

Naji Tiliu Dao. There are many saber sets in the art of Kung Fu. This one has much of BaJi's simplicity and directness. It could work as either a saber or a stick sets. Movements are clear and organic. Not so much a demonstration set as a saber consistent with BaJi's characteristics. This set is named after the swaying of willow branches, TiLiu.

VCD#522 Western Staff style Traditional BaJi Fist
About 1 Hour, VCD pricing, Chinese Only

Quantity

Li Rui Lin performs Chuan-Tong Ba-Ji Chuan.
Now this is interesting. A traditional BaJi set (Da BaJi) performed in this style. Very similar to a Heaven Mountain version (Tian Shan Pai) we learned many years ago. It's interesting to see an essentially accurate but somewhat stiff version of the style. Not a bad interpretation but, to our eyes, more a version for the BaJi completist.

VCD#726 Shaolin BaJi Fist
About 1 Hour, VCD pricing, Chinese Only

Quantity

To paraphrase the old criticism, "Shaolin BaJi is to real BaJi what marching music is to music." Interesting historically. We could write a long piece on the relationship between style, system and other aspects of general Kung Fu theory. This is Da BaJi assimilated into Shaolin. It has been transformed into Shaolin "style" and, without getting too complex, this might contradict the very concept of Shaolin as a "collection" style. The Swiss once unsuccessfully tried to import pasta into Italy. If you want real BaJi go to Cang county.
