Pa-Kua: Chinese Boxing for Fitness and Self-Defense was the first book on "palm boxing" to be released in English. Over the years it gained many readers and helped to introduce this art to the western world. For many, it would be their first notion of Chinese internal boxing (nei-chia). Taiji and Hsing-i combine with Pa-Kua to make up the internal or soft boxing system as distinguished from the hard boxing usually subsumed under the name Shaolin. I had studied all three under top-drawer teachers in Taiwan (including Paul Kuo, Wang Shu-chin, and Hung I-hsiang).

To learn combatives because of their self-defense value is a confession of weakness, of being unable to resolve interpersonal problems rationally.
It also covers the basic eighteen exercises of Pa-Kua, as well as the main principles of this Chinese boxing art. The photographs are clear but I do not believe you can really learn this art by just reading this book. If you are studing this King-Fu system this book can help to clarify the movements your instructor has taught you. In conclusion, this book is of value for those who are studying with a Pa-Kua teacher. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Martial Art Myths-Cafe Press).
Originally published in 1967, Pa-Kua was the West’s first look into the esoteric Chinese martial arts. It has been a valued and sought after text ever since. It was put out of print in the 1970s, but since that time interest in the martial arts have continued to skyrocket. Pa-Kua gives an introduction to the little known mystical martial art from China, Pa Kua Chang (also known as Ba Gua Zhang), translated as "Eight Trigram Boxing"
