WHAT YOU LEARN AT JIULONG BAGUAZHANG SCHOOL
Let us examine what you can expect to learn in one of our schools. Jiulong Baguazhang is a very deep and rich method that has evolved over a period of 400 hundred years. Much care has gone into the planning of a logical curriculum designed to give you the best and most complete learning experience possible.
Jiulong Baguazhang is not your typical Baguazhang as found today in China or anywhere in the world. Jiulong or Nine Dragon Baguazhang is a method of self-defense that is true; however it is much, much more than that.
Students study the art through a series or progressive lessons designed to open their mind and body to higher levels of flexibility. We not only stress physical flexibility but also flexibility of the mind that in time manifests as emotional and psychological understandings concerning the psyche of the individual practitioner.
