Baguazhang : Fighting Secrets of the Eight Tigram Palms

Closely related to taijiquan, baguazhang is one of the three internal arts and, like its counterparts, can be used to kill as well as to heal. Hidden within it is a series of brutal, relentless strikes applied quickly and mercilessly to the very deadly dim-mak points of the body. In this book, Eric Montaigue first introduces the original circular form, complete with photos of each posture and its practical application. Next he presents the linear or fighting form to teach the secrets of extracting an endless array of combat application. Next he presents the linear or fighting form to teach the secrets of extracting an endless array of combat applications from this complex art. If you appreciate the dual healing and martial qualities of dim-mak and other internal arts, this book will be an invaluable addition to your training library.
