Hi Everyone,
Here is my new DVD on Nonviolent Self-Defense and crisis intervention. There is a lot of bagua and taiji in the techniques. It accompanies a seminar I am presenting right now on the West Coast. I will be in Seattle October 15 and 29, and California in November.

Here is the cover of my new book, Bagua Zhang Fundamentals. It won't be available until May 2017, in fact I have only written the introduction and the first two chapters, but the wheels of the modern publishing industry must be greased! It is distributed by Penguin Random House, so for the benefit of being placed in bookstores worldwide, we must bend to their will. Anyway, I will keep you posted on the progress and even put up some occasional sample content from time to time.

I am now offering a new Dragon Style Baguazhang training class here in Beaverton. It meets every Saturday morning 8:30-10:00 at Evelyn Schiffler Memorial Park on SW Erickson Ave., just south of Beaverton High. There is a shelter there, so we will meet rain or shine. No experience necessary. Fee $10/class. Contact me if interested at:

Back in the U.S.

I have moved from Taiwan to lovely Beaverton, Oregon, a suburb of Portland. I will be offering private instruction and group seminars in the immediate area and beyond. You can reach me with a message here or e-mail to: I look forward to hearing from you!

I have often been asked if it is possible to learn an art like Bagua Zhang from a book and/or DVD. Well, the answer is obviously, yes. Here is the proof! The young gentleman in the video link (below), not having a teacher available, bought 'Bagua Linked Palms' and the companion DVD and learned the form on his own. Of course, it is clear there are many major and minor corrections needed to perfect his form, but that's not the point. He worked hard and accomplished his goal of learning the form all on his own. Job well done! And now for those corrections :)

Returning to the USA!

Greetings All!
I am returning to the U.S. after a three-year sojourn in Taiwan. I will be back in California around the end of November and looking forward to getting back on the seminar trail. I gathered a lot of new and interesting perspectives while back in Taiwan. It was great reconnecting with gong-fu brothers and sisters and making new friends. I have a lot of new insights to share with all of you. It's great to be back!
