Baguazhang is an internal martial art that unites the mind spirit and body through a circular movement training for elevated combat and self-healing. It trains how to strengthen blood and Qi and therefore how to keep the body system in balance.
The power of the practice stems from ancient principles that date back two thousand years when Bodhi Dharma arrived to China from India and found the system that Shaolin Kung Fu is based on. Monks and nuns historically cultivated arts that unite the entire being. In ancient Mexico, both sages and nobles such as the Princess Malintzin Tenepal were trained in martial warfare strategy, spiritual and secret high order practices.
The objective of this practice is to become an autonomous expansive being balanced and fully conscious in our body. Emptiness, self-autonomy, self-healing and self-defense are states and skills sought by training.
Bagua as a martial arts, teaches discipline of the self and a code of honor. By uniting body, soul and spirit, is how our full being can move completely in one chosen direction with a precise intention. The focus is on battling the war within in order to reach our highest state of being.
