    Wo xi huan zhe Baji yin wei wo xiang ta you li liang. Yuan liang Wo. Wo shuo de bu hao.

    Anyways, I like this clip. Whatever form that is, it has some excellent lock, break, and throw combos. There is an excellent take down and break there too. Also, the last four moves are cool. I don't know if this makes sense, but I kind of see some Lost Track with some Southern stuff going on there. Definetely different than the Wu Shu Ba Ji stuff.

    lol.

    oops...my edit was simultaneous with your post.

    The form is Dabaji. The video is from a "traditional performance forms friendship tournament" I saw in China. What do you train, Tao Yin?

    Cool clip.

    Good Job.

    There are a lot of noises in the backgroud. I wished the camera may be closer.

    The stamping feet and hand movements started and ended at the same time. Shou Dao Jiao Dao

    The flows of steps and directions. Well done.

    The whole body Jin issuing. Cheng Jin.

    Every move started with soft and Nei Qi and ended in the hard way.

    We used Wuuh Hmm more than Haah.

    Nan Quan or southern boxing used a lot of Haah.

    Use the voice to assist the force. Hua Sheng Yi Zhu Li.

    According to Master Liu Yun Qiao, Ba Ji focuses on internal or Nei Qi and Nei Jin.

    Wai Gang Nei Ruo. Ba Ji is soft internally and hard outwardly.

    Thanks, that was fun!

    (are there any piqua clips in that library? I can't read it.)

    Comments on the original post are in the other thread.

    It is a site devoted to Master Liu Yun Qiao in Hongkong.

    There are good articles on Ba Ji, Liu He Tang Lang etc.

    The video library does not have Pi Qua.

    Actually, it was a link you provided in Ba Gua footwork thread.

    There are many good Chinese articles in the site.

    But it would take a while to digest. It would take even more time to translate them into English.

    There are some translations of Master Liu's articles before. But the translators are usually not trained in CMA.

    Ya, I gathered as much. Thanks for the effort anyway. I have a major interest in piqua these days. Baji, not so much

    Omar translated an excellent article on Liu and our bagua. Maybe he could post it here, or I'll dig it up and post on the internal board later if he doesn't mind.

    Thanks again.

    Omar,

    Hello. I train Yau Kung Mun. I was mainly impressed with that clip because the practitioner was definetely issuing, as SPJ stated, "Cheng Jin." This is something that is somewhat difficult to spot in a video clip I think. However, this practitioner was clearly issuing crip strikes with decent usage of yin/yang concepts. Many people are either too much of one or too much of the other. It's difficult to keep it natural and let the two wield themselves together as they already were before. Anyways, just my er jiao.

    Happy New Year Soon To All,

    Tao

    So where'f you post it? I'd like to see what they're saying. I'm even kind of curious how quickly someone recignizes it for what it is....unless you already went back and told them...

    SPJ,

    Excellent clip! I have seen the whole video before from my gongfu brother. These guys definitely got the baji essence. The guy in the front left played an excellent Baji Lian Huan Quan later on the video.

    Omar,

    I really like that form. Different flavor than ours but all the things that make Baji Baji were there. It's fluid but solid.

    Peace
