Cheng Style Bagua Swimming Body Palm - Part I (You Shen Lian Huan Zhang)
Master Liu Xiaoling will teach Bagua Zhang fundamentals and lead students through the segment of the form known as You Shen Lian Huan Zhang. The form emphasizes unifications of the body's movement and trains the practitioner to emulate the movements of a dragon swimming through the clouds. Its practice lays the foundation for achieving high-level Bagua skill. The form displays the turning and changes of the dragon, the high and low movement of an eagle flying through the air, the firmness of a sitting tiger, and the quickness of a monkey. Through the practice of fundamentals and the Swimming Body Palm form, the practitioner gains a view of the essence of Cheng Ting Hua's Bagua Zhang.
