(Glossy Paperback, 50 pages, 8 1/2" x 11") This classic Bagua weapon's form was handed down by Dong Haichuan and is presented here for the first time in English by top practitioner and insightful translator, Joseph Crandall. What's interesting to me is that I had learned nearly the exact same form year's before Crandall translated the book. I still have a copy of the first edition in Chinese. Therefore, because it came from two different strands of Dong Haichuan's lineage, I believe in its legitimacy. A video of this form, performed with the traditional 4 1/2 foot long, 8 lb. combat steel broadsword can be found currently under the Bagua demonstration forms section and a special joining the book and video is located on our Specials page with other book and video combinations.
