The 72 Hidden Legs of Ba Gua Zhang: Part 1

The 72 leg attacks are also know as the “hidden legs.” Although some people the hidden legs exist as a fixed set of techniques, my own understanding is that they are simply ways of using the legs that are extensions of the Ba Gua circle walking step. From this viewpoint, the number 72 is simply a way of saying there are many possible uses of the hidden legs in Ba Gua, and that these will unfold naturally if one has practiced the stepping sufficiently. Indeed, in the techniques below, many of these leg attacks seem to simply be variations of each other. The 72 Hidden Legs presented in this series of posts are excerpted from a small book on Ba Gua I purchased in China in the 1990’s. I have since lost the book and do not know the author or title, but here is Part 1 of the translation by my good friend Huang Guo Qi.
