Baguazhang circle walking is my latest book which I published in December 2015.
This is a small book that covers the body requirements of circle walking. The book explains the writing of Gao Yisheng on circle walking, and is illustrated with some nice line drawings. As well as my demystifying approach which can save you a lot of time and help make the obscure more clear. When I wrote it I wanted to give readers a way to
Included in the book are
  • Breathing methods
  • Stepping methods
  • The eight mother palms – fixed upper body postures
  • Simple partner training exercises to clarify body structure and power
  • Context and guidelines for training

As I said this is a small book, and while it is not perfect I’m pretty happy with it. It is very good value for money on Kindle, and pretty affordable in paperback.

Beginning Bagua is probably the most down to earth, practical book about Bagua currently available.

It is written with the goal of providing concrete, directly useful information on Bagua. This book covers the basics of body use stepping, static posture training, Qigong, key movements, striking and throwing applications, circle walking as well as how Bagua’s intellectual framework applies to martial tactics and to general training.

Much of what you will find in this book is useful not just to practitioners of Bagua, but to martial artists in general.

Beginning Bagua is extensively illustrated with photos of both solo movements, basic exercises, palm changes and martial applications.

Bagua is often presented as mysterious, complicated and difficult. It certainly requires study and practice, but this book provides the keys to make sense of the ‘abstract’ movements, to see the logic behind them and begin to develop useful skills. This book can save you a lot of grief and confusion!

The information itself is presented in a straight forward way, based on direct experience and written with at least occasional humour.

Beginning Bagua is the first book in a series that will look at aspects of Bagua with increasing detail and an emphasis on practicality.

 Moving into stillness

Tired of reading overly grandiose, humourless, confusing or pseudo-scientific books on Qigong?

I was, so I wrote this one, based on the Daoist methods I learned from my teacher Luo Dexiu.

I wanted to give readers:

  • a set of clear methods to use breath and movement as a way to meditate and find stillness
  • Exercises and approaches to feel better in daily life
  • Ways to connect Qigong and martial practices
  • Ideas to cut through bullshit
  • Something they could share with skeptical friends

Many people have told me that I succeeded, you decide for yourself.
