Revive Original Yin Style Baguazhang (feudal Shaolin) and Gongfu Jia Chen Taijiquan (feudal Bajiquan) with the new Online Biomechanics/ Feudal Insight Training Program

Feudal Baguazhang used by Retainers of the Imperial Court (Qing Imperial Army, Intelligence Agency) and feudal Chen Taijiquan of the Ming Dynasty is now accessible in the comfort of your own home. The nuanced biomechanical and scholarly approach to resurrect the 1st Generation methods of Baguazhang and Tai Chi Chuan founding fathers, in modern Internal Martial Art culture. Join the movement in historical restoration of raw Chinese kungfu- it is extinct... This program works for those already familiar with the He Jinbao/ Xie Peiqi Animal Systems material and would like precision corrections or additional historical insight into the now perceived empty-hand routines. Feudal Insight can supplement any Chen Taijiquan material for those who wish to revive in their current practice- Ming and Qing strategy/ feudal context of Chen Tai Chi Chuan before the post- Yang Taiji/ Peking Opera fusion in the late Qing era. We can monitor proper biomechanics and historical body skill, the feudal context of application- if you need a spotter. Modern kungfu in the current interpretation is far removed from feudal dynasties.  Much work needs to be done for its preservation and accurate documentation. All practitioners of other Yin or Cheng Baguazhang lines (with 2nd Generation interpretation 0f history) who would like additional historical context to their current training material or biomechanical corrections- are welcome. SUPPORT THE FIGHT AGAINST PEKING OPERA-FU FALLACIES  Our organization’s mission is to preserve medieval Ming and Qing strategy/ feudal context of Internal Martial Arts in modern times. The cultural fitness reform in 1928 watered down even the most well-preserved fighting lineages- and many others are exceptionally far removed from the reality of ancient era. 

Online training is an excellent supplement for Live Training, however live training is optimized only with the proper biomechanical framework and factual documentation of feudal martial systems, all of which is in this program.

Step One: Receive your free consultation to discuss which martial system and approach suit your needs- preferred material, context.  For Yin Baguazhang, the Dragon is recommended as the core training system- Dragon is the crest of Imperial Guards and retains the Manchu close combat of the Qing Special forces, not limited to bayonet-fu. Xin Jia (New Frame) is foundational for Chen Taijiquan material as it contains both Qing and Ming dynasty methods. Gongfu Jia Chen Taijiquan (Chen Fake/ Chen Zhaokui) consists of more complex and obvious internal spiraling, fierce short range power release, transitions, and dynamic body skill. Chen Fake’s Taijiquan differs greatly from the modern Chen Village styles due to its BAJIQUAN integration standard in Qi Jiguang military treatise and armed escort strategy of the late Qing and Republic of China era. Feudal Bajiquan and Chen Taijiquan are feudal Shaolin- both systems descend from the same Ming Dynasty military treatise.   Email:   kuan@baguakungfu.com
