    Okay I give up, can someone tell me what BAJI(!) is?

    Close range fighting art?
    Striking or grappling or both?

    BAJI! has a way of doing things that is pretty unique compared to what I've seen everywhere else... how come nobody has tried to implement it into their MMA? Change how its trained a bit and get some good in-fighters to take it apart, and add in some techniques!

    Or is it simply THAT obscure?

    You don't know anything about BAJI! You've never heard of the Secret Art.

    it seems to me that it'd be difficult to "integrate" into other styles, because the mechanics are so fucking weird. It takes a long time just to get the basic mechanics down.

    Just miss talking about BAJI! so I'm reviving this thread for a moment.

    Integrate? Just borrow the power generation or some of the training techniques. The short power, the body blocks, the iron shirt, the attitude.

    No need to "integrate" techniques. It's pretty damn complete. Like most chinese stuff there's no ground game, but in the standing grappling your covered. Most schools like to bled it with pigua, but I don't think you need to. The idea is probably that pigua is a loose whippy longer range style which should add a little balance to BAJI!'s short range staccato bursts.

    Forgettaboutit! Jsut blast straight in and to hell with the long range game. Besides, most grapplers are gonna blast in on you anyways. I WELCOME THE CHALLENGE! BRING IT ON!!! FEEL THE POWER !

    p.s. fingerorthe moon - mainly a close range smashing art. Very aggressive.

    "Its notorious power is derived from the long, harsh, and often unbearable training in basic body usage. During fighting the Bajiquan practitioner would approach the opponent from a long-range position and close to a body-to-body contact distance."
