Yin Style Baguazhang Lion System Overview

Recommended Posts

I'm returning to the Lion system from Xie Peiqi's lineage and wanted to provide myself with a way of going back to review subject material as I progress. I hope this helps you with your practice as this is the foundation to start this style of baguazhang. One should ignore the other animals until one has put a good amount of time into Lion (two years at least).
