Ba Gua Sword

There will be a workshop on Ba Gua Sword on December 4th, 2016 in Edmonton. For more information click here (and scroll to the bottom).

These are some photos of Sword form from Sun Xikun’s book, Ba Gua: The Authentic Transmission, published in 1934. My Ba Gua teacher, Luo Dexiu, found this lineage in the south of Taiwan while he was fulfilling his military duty in the mid-70s, and learned their Ba Gua including the sword from Sun’s student, Liu Qian. For a bit more of this history click here.
