Liu Bin’s Zhuang Gong Bagua Zhang Reviewed

October 9, 2008

Liu Bin’s Zhuang Gong Bagua Zhang by Zhang Jie has received some attention from the online media. On September 23, 2008, a blogger—Mike Garofalo, who writes for Cloud Hands, reviewed it HERE.

He notes,

“Dr. Zhang gives clear instructions on circle walking, single palm changes, and twenty four movements of the eight animals. Emphasis is placed on a slow, rooted, and deliberate pace with enhanced awareness.”

“A unique part of this book are the sixteen Zhan Zhuang (standing meditation) exercises, and the considerable emphasis and explanations on inner work, chi gong, and mind training. Most of the emphasis in this book is on providing clear instructions on how to practice essential Bagua so as to stay fit, improve the mind, harmonize with nature, build strength and balance, and enhance one’s understanding of Chinese philosophy.”

Cloud Hands gives the title a favorable review and draws attention to the author’s clear, instructive style, as well as the book’s well-rounded scope. The first volume in a series of two on the form, Liu Bin’s Zhuang Gong Bagua Zhang, Volume One, is written from the perspective of a true master who gives equal attention to Bagua’s historical evolution as to the art and practice itself. The book also reveals previously unpublished historical photographs. The author is currenlty working on volume two.
