Made for PC's they are also Mac compatible by downloading Quick time (for free) and any similar VCD player program.Also playable on most DVD players. For less than $10.00? Wow!

Here is a demonstration and a breakdown of the Eight Palm Changes of the Cheng style of Ba Gua- one of the most famous. The basic form (Tao Lu) is done in a field and the instruction in a studio. Very clear movements and the teaching is quite lucid. A nice form with sophisticated palm changes and a long stepping method. Also, the general movements of the teacher, Liu Jing Ru, are well practiced, pleasant and professional. To our mind a traditional sequence with possibly some more contemporary influence but basically solid and respectable. And all Eight Changes for this price! A great reference.
