    Adam Hsu really rates Baji. He calls it "Kung Fu's Magnum force".

    Here is some footage of him doing it:

    Well, there's the original style of BaJiQuan, and then there's the modified version that 99% of the world knows. Nothing wrong with a modified style, but it's funny when practioners who don't realize their style is modified then denigrate people who do the original version, calling it "wrong".

    There is (or was) a lost 2 man set to BaJiQuan that involved full force strikes. It would be interesting to find references to that, or a lineage that has preserved it, even in modified form.

    There are actually many versions of Baji, some are just more widespread than others. Could you possibly clarify which is the "Original Baji"

    In my experience all of the Baji I've seen has shared many similar traits, even though their routines were different. Naturally many of the different systems floating around out there were modified over time, this basically happens to a greater of lesser extent with all systems.

    As far as a two man set, any two man set can be done with full force strikes if the participants want to. It would be odd for them to have a two man set that didn't do full force strikes and then to have a completely different two man set that did. For the record I do know a Baji two man set.

    If you could tell me who you consider to have the "Original Baji" or who was the first teacher of the "Original Baji" I would appreciate it, I have a good lineage chart on Baji from China, if you provide me with a name I can see if and where it falls on the chart.

    This kind of statement I always find funny. All two man sets are supposed to be done full force. The fact that they aren't proves how bad kung fu has degenerated.
