Volume II picks up where Volume I left off with form demonstration followed by a demo by Jiang Rong Qiao's daughter, and subsequent chapters outlining self defense applications using the strategies of Baguazhang. VOLUME II: CHAPTER SIX: THE OLD EIGHT PALMS DEMONSTRATION (SLOW MOTION w/TITLES) The front angle with Sharp is mastered here in slow motion (half speed) with subtitles of all 8 palms and the names of each of the more than 300 individual forms. Marking precisely where each form begins and ends. CHAPTER SEVEN: THE OLD EIGHT PALMS DEMONSTRATION (Palms Four Through Eight) OF TEACHER ZOU SHUXIAN, JIANG RONG QIAO'S DAUGHTER Zou Shuxian, Jiang Rong Qiao's adopted daughter demonstrates the opening of the Old Eight Palms form, Palms Four through Eight, and the closing form. This demonstration was shot with two cameras, and is of average to above average video quality. Each of the palms four through eight is identified for clarity. CHAPTER EIGHT: BAGUA IN HAND TO HAND COMBAT Demonstrated are some of the takedowns, tosses, joint locks, submissions, sweeps, crushes, and defenses associated with the form. Also demonstrated are subtle ways to neutralize attacks, break down or use the guard from the top position; as well as, reverse from the bottom position. This is the first time on any video series that Jiang Rong Qiao's traditional Suai Jiao (Chinese Grappling) (as passed to Jiang from Zhang Zao Dong and Li Cun Yi) is demonstrated. Traditional Suai Jiao is gentle and practical, and is unlike the heavy-handed, forceful gi grabbing associated with the sport Suai Jiao more commonly demonstrated today. CHAPTER NINE: WEAPONS DEFENSES Unique to this chapter are demonstrations of defenses against knife and gun attacks without the reliance on "dopey" floors for maneuvering. Techniques are realistic and performed on concreteand again Jiang's traditional Suai Jiao applications are featured.
