Bagua Stick Basics Lesson

Baguazhang Stick Martial Art Intro 2015 YouTube

In tonight’s lesson, we looked at the basics of Bagua Stick training. I love the stick forms my teacher, Master Luo De Xiu, taught me. We don’t have much content, but what we do have is excellent.

In this lesson, I introduced the essential grip and the first drills, broken down into four stages. Then I looked at how the staff connects with the body and how Luo laoshi told us to constantly hold and touch the staff, play with its balance in the hands and never put it down.

I spoke about using the body as a fulcrum between the hand’s positions on the stick; it makes a huge difference in the power and structure of the applications.
