Pa Kua Chang is one of China's foremost internal martial arts, based on the pa kua or eight trigram symbol. In this book, world reknowned pa kua chang master Park Bok Nam describes in detail the various components of pa kua chang's basic training as it was taught to him by the legendary master, Lu Shui-Tien. Through in-depth discussion and detailed photographs, this book presents exercises which will help any martial artist improve footwork, body flexibility, internal energy circulation, and internal striking power.

Preface It has been three years since I sat down to write the preface to the first volume of this book. In that three years I have learned a lot. I have learned a lot about Pa Kua Chang and I have learned a lot about Park Bok Namʹs system of Pa Kua Chang.

After the first issue of the Pa Kua Chang Newsletter had been published in November 1990, I approached Bok Nam Park to ask if he would be interested in being interviewed for the publication. Park's response to the first newsletter was, "History does not make progress, students need to learn principles. His point was that martial arts publications print too much history, generalized information, and abstract theory when what students need is a detailed explanation of fundamental principles

Pa Kua master and Chinese martial art historian Dan Miller wrote this book as an introduction to the pa kua kung fu curriculum as handed down to him via the famous late master Lu Shui Tien of China. It focuses on the linear and circular footwork (the only system in existance that keeps both types of footwork), all aspects of preparing for martial art training and the chi kung for health aspects of training. Other styles of pa kua only mention one or two aspects of the martial art. This book gives a great overview of eveything a true and complete internal Chinese martial art training system will require of the interested student.

First let me say that I have every book, translation, and DVD ever produced on Ba Gua. Most show form movements or the history of the art. This book (both volumes 1 and 2) also tell the history of Ba Gua, but this is the only book I've seen that covers the stepping method of Yin Fu Ba Gua so completely, and the Fa Jin full body movements. Without the explosive power, the forms are almost useless in self defense.

The companion DVDs are excellent in showing the intricate movements of the body to deliver real power. I know why these are impossible to find...nobody wants to give their copy up.

You can't learn a martial art from a book. But if you are already in training, this fills in a lot of gaps, and takes your training to a higher level.

You know when your instructor shows you a strike and his power seems almost supernatural? This book and Dvds explain the mechanics of how to generate that power.

And Dan Miller makes these ideas easy to understand...a real feat in itself.

Certainly worth he price of admission.

This is by far, one of the best known written books on the art of "Pa Kua Chang". What I like about this book, is not only does it give the history on the art of "Pa Kua Chang". But I feel, gives the history behind the history; if you will! Sigung Park, also presents a realistic format on how to learn the art; progressively and gradually. If you've ever been interested in the 'Internal arts of Kung Fu' ( specifically, "Pa Kua Chang" ), please get this book!!!! Thank you

(And Chi Kung)

Added notes include:

Various types of stepping, various types of walking the circle, more body conditioning movements, kou bu and bai bu applications, more of the "48 month palms", elbow training .. and of course, plenty more.

In general, an extremely worthwhile addition to any Bagua student's library - by far some of the best books in print.

This book presents a lot of information, and presents it well.
However, it makes VERY frequent references to techniques presented in Vol I, and it does not present those techniques again. Several pages are dedicated to the sole purpose of explaining how important it is that the reader master the techniques of the first book before moving on to the techniques in this book. Therefore, if you are looking to build a practice out of this book, you will need to also read the first volume.

It's a valuable resource that might be lost otherwise.

What I liked: the emphasis on knowing the principles(especially the footwork) rather than the forms.
What I didn't like: the repetitive nature of the explanations seemed like an old record stuck in its groove rather than a reinforcement of explanations.
Two volumes: I think with better editing one volume would have been possible.
I did not have the companinion videos with my order but found it posted on youtube.
Suitable for beginners and those with some experience in ba gua zhang

this and book one are some of the best material you will ever find on this style
After reading the first volume, I sought out the student group under Sifu Park nearest me and began training. Sifu Park is a wonderful teacher and holds nothing back in imparting the system which he has inherited. Volume II of Sifu Park's book contains yet another wealth of information while emphasizing the basic and fundamental concepts laid out in the first. It is meant to read and used as a written reference for those who have already learned the content of the first volume. I write "learned" rather than "mastered" because it takes years of practice to truly master the contents of the first volume. In the second volume, Sifu Park begins to build up the student's repertoire of techniques, fundamental exercises, and theoretical concepts. Generally speaking, in Sifu's school and study groups, it takes about a year to two years (depending on your background and willingness to practice) to get a handle on all of the teachings from the first voume. The second volume could easily take six to seven years of practice before one learns everything. Sifu also begins to show some fighting applications and the "variations on a theme" concepts that are Pa Kua trademarks. If one wishes to learn the exercises within these books, the videos are essential if a student group is not readily available. However, without the videos, the books give excellent insights into not only what is known as the most effective internal martial art created but also into general martial arts practice, applications, and the building of good fundamentals.
