Ba Gua Zhang is a sophisticated method of internal martial arts training.
Ba Gua not only teaches effective self-defense skills, but also activates
limitless potential for self-discovery and self-expression. Its intricately
interwoven and organically complete methodology combines martial training
with Daoist circle walking meditation, internal alchemy and other life
nourishing practices to create profound changes in the body, mind and

These three weekends of intensive training guide students towards building
a personal practice that will grant them access to the full range of Ba
Gua’s benefits. Each day’s class consists of 6 hours of training with a one
hour break in the middle. Each class begins with 1.5 to 2 hours of Nei Gong
(fundamental internal training) followed by 4 to 4.5 hours of intensive Ba
Gua Zhang training. This intensive examination of the training method
combined with individual feedback and corrections sparks leaps of
improvement over the weekends that can then be directly applied to one's
personal practice.

The class will be taught by Kelly McDonald and Thad Wong, both certified Ba
Gua Zhang instructors under Tom Bisio and Internal Arts International.
Together they bring decades of experience in both training and teaching
Chinese medicine and martial arts to the class.
