5 Circles of Jiulong Baguazhang

Workshop August 5 – 7

Master Key To All Li Family Health and Martial Tactics A weekend workshop with Dr. John P. Painter

drpainterbaguaFive Circles of Daoqiquan and Jiulong Baguazhang

A unique concept created by the Li family was the distillation of all physical movements for martial art and Qigong into what was known as The Six Stances (Liu-bu 六 步) and Five Circles (Wu Ge Quanzi 五個圈子).

Six stances encompassed all possible movement options for stepping patterns while the Five Circles distilled the actions of all martial maneuvers with fist, palm, or any weapon. Together these two core concepts when combined comprised the basis of Li family martial art known as Daoqiquan.

Shigong John Painter will explain and instruct in detail how these two concepts are combined for use in Jiulong Baguazhang as a template for martial and health practices. Hidden within the five circles are the secrets of neutralizing force from incoming strikes, grabs, and kicks as well as methods of delivering powerful strikes, locks, throws, and attacks. Combining these with the Six Stances and the powerful Water Dragon Stepping turning methods of Jiulong Baguazhang can open a new chapter in understanding how to improve one’s internal martial skills and health development. This method can be incorporated into any internal or external martial arts system.

All skill levels welcome… beginner through advanced.
