Fighting Secrets of the Eight Trigram Palms
by Erle Montaigue
Closely related to taijiquan, baguazhang is one of the three great internal arts and, like its counterparts, can be used to kill as well as to heal. Hidden within it is a series of brutal, relentless strikes applied quickly and mercilessly to the very deadly dim-mak points of the body. In this book, Erle Montaigue first introduces the original circular form, complete with photos of each posture and its practical application. Next he presents the linear or fighting form to teach the secrets of extracting and endless array of combat applications from this complex art. If you appreciate the dual healing and martial qualities of dim-mak and other internal arts, this book will be an invaluable addition to your training library. For academic study only. 8 1/2 x 11, softcover, photos, 152 pp.
