The Essentials of Ba Gua Zhang

By Gao Ji Wu and Tom Bisio  |   photos by Valerie Ghent

In this one-of-a-kind book, Master Gao Ji Wu discusses the important points of Ba Gua Zhang and presents forms and techniques from Beijing Gao Style Ba Gua Zhang.

“There are a lot of books on Bagua, at least compared to a few years ago. This volume, written as a collaboration between Master Gao Ji Wu and Tom Bisio, is one of the best on the market.

“The pictures are large and clear (definitely a plus in a martial arts book). The background information is good, well written and avoids the strictly legendary. Bagua is a style like Taijiquan but even more sophisticated and this text gets you moving like a Bagua student without confusing you in the process. Definitely belongs in the library.”
