进入八卦门 - ENTER THE BAGUA GATE
In history, the group of dedicated practitioners with in Bagua Zhang was called 八卦门 Bagua Men, hinting that some things are taught behind closed doors. Nowadays we all know there are no secret techniques and that lineages don't mean everything, but still, there are concepts, methods and understanding that seems to get lost outside these gates. Often there are less movements and more substance in the original methods.
After seeing that many old masters, teaching real 功夫 Gong Fu, don't have students to carry on their legacy, we felt the need to preserve and revive this almost lost knowledge. The "5 Years of Kung Fu Project" is a unique initiative that is shaped by 15 years of research and preparation. We are glad that it finally has taken an actual form that we can present here on our website.
The Online-program is taught by Jakob Pang Isaksson, European Traditional Kungfu Champion, who is a professional in skill development and training. Jakob speaks mandarin and has lived in China for many years, everything presented here is under supervision from Bagua Zhang teacher 李建民 Li Jian Min, Quzhou, Zhejiang Province, China. Helping with research and teaching is Daniel Sundberg, Uppsala, who has been competing in traditional Wushu and gone through long terms of training in China.

Martial Arts training needs to be hands on, practical and direct. The method must to be effective and leading to a clear goal. Here you get practical examples from one of the original texts with in the doors of Xingyi Bagua Men. The text is no secret now, but 50 years ago it was, and few have access to the meaning of each instruction. This leads to unnecessary confusion in the community. We hope to change that and help people get on the right track from start. Important to know is that this text was written for combat, not form or solo practice.
