Just as an aside.
Anyone who thinks that MoPai is a tad contentious has yet to discover the inter-school fractiousness around commercial Bagua.
Here's a nice article from the BlackTaoist site and that quote in the last paragraph, to me; is 'statesmanlike'.
idk, it could, but here on ttb bagua threads have never gone the way so many tai chi threads have gone, certainly no bagua thread has ever appeared to be a mo pai type thread. and offline, in the 'real' world in my neck of the woods we have exchanged many thoughts and experiences with maybe every single open source bagua school with nothing but mutual benefit. we have had meet ups and even --in state fierce rival kung fu schools --that butted heads on everything else found the exchanging of bagua related materials very friendly.
gmp, which style of baguazhang do you have experience with? and some in my neck of the woods have ongoing dialogue with black taoist even.
edit> plum pub gets mentioned on ttb from time to time and they do have a nice selection of material in a wide range of styles not just with the bagua, but this is the bagua thread, so
it is well known that i am part of DGS (i am a very very small part lol) and that i appreciate all bagua styles (that abide by the 36 and 48 songs) and i have an open mind towards all bagua thought.
i have wanted to check these 2 out for sometime, if anyone has these and would like to comment?
