COMPREHENSIVE: Most other books on Baguazhang focus only on the unique footwork, while this book also includes how to use baguazhang for self-defense.
TARGETED READERSHIP: This book is directed at new and experienced martial artists, especially those who practice baguazhang, kung-fu, or other styles of Chinese martial arts.
“Useful, functional bagua training for real students who want to work. Straight-forward, reasonable presentation of authentic material by an experienced hand who has been around the block more than once. Highly recommended!”
—Robert Allen Pittman, master instructor of bagua and xingyi, author of Walking the I Ching, and coauthor of Chinese Internal Boxing and Bagua and Xingyi
“One of the things that makes Phillip Starr one of my favorite martial arts authors is that he can take even the most intricate actions and make them understandable. If you are interested in this fascinating art yet have backed off from studying it because of its complexity, you are in for a treat.”
—Professor Dan Anderson, 10th dan, world-famous martial arts champion and author of American Freestyle Karate and The Dan Anderson Encyclopedia of Modern Arnis
“…a clear and concise picture of the basic fundamentals necessary to practice Dong Haiquan’s baguazhang fundamental principles. [Starr] shows you how to use these concepts as both a health and practical martial art, something sorely lacking in today’s world of restrictive tournament forms.”
—John P. Painter, PHD, ND, Li family Jiulong Baguazhang USA representative
