This book outlines the history of Pa-kua - a style of boxing based on the eight (pa) trigrams (kua) of the I Ching - and gives a thorough account of the philosophy behind the art. It also presents to the West for the first time the orthodox style of the late Chinese Pa-kua master Wang Shu-chin.
Described here in great detail and fully illustrated are the basic techniques, the eight palm shapes, and the eight traditional methods of "waking the circle." Guided by this easy-to-follow text, the student of Pa-kua can probe deeply into the hitherto hidden secrets of one of the most complete systems of self-defense ever developed.
