BAGUAZHANG (PAKUA) is a martial art performed while walking or "skating" in a circle. Its movements embody eight different Qi qualities which emerge from and change into each other. It is a purely internal art which has its origins in a ritual dance for the protection of Beijing, China's capital which was built on a map of the eight armed baby god Nezha. "Bagua" means eight powers and "zhang" means hands. It can also be practiced for health, meditation or self-defense. Bagua uses soft flowing movement, yet it tends to be more dynamic and spontaneous than its cousin Taijiquan. It is a great choice for highly energetic people. Scott is working on a book explaining the martial-ritual-theater origins of Baguazhang.

Standing Meditation too.
