    I am sure that is true as well.

    I can think of 3 or 4 guys I have sparred that did nothing but Bagua. They sucked hard. Tried to do all this snakey **** as they were getting leveled.

    Usually that is where I get my opinions from. I am ok with something if it makes no sense BUT can be used to fight, for example the Tai Chi guy that schooled my ass everytime we fought. But thus far, Bagua for me is a mystery plus everyone who claimed it sucked at fighting. I would love to fight that guy who was a bagua only guy and was a good fighter to boot.

    (Once again, I am not a billy-bad ass and get my ass handed to me as well)

    The Honor of Dong Fang Xu is an awesome movie btw. Definitely worth a watch for those into old-school kung fu movies.

    Well, I can tell ya that's not Adam Hsu. It seems to be one of his students, though.

    For what it's worth I trained bagua with another guy from Li Yun Jiao's lineage years ago. It's a great style but almost no Americans can use it. Jason Tsou, who was my instructor's teacher, was a really good shuai jiao practioner and coach, so we focused alot on throws and set-ups for the throw.

    I got a rude awakening when I met other bagua peopel for the first time.
