This bagua practitioner's stance bears a strong resemblance to the Okinawan's Naihanchi. The picture is from Chinese Martial Arts Training Manuals, by Kennedy & Guo, page 274. The original book is by Ren Zhi Cheng, who was a student of Gao Zhi Kai.What a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable. -Xenophon's Socrates

That stance is in lots of southern chinese arts. From 'chun to fukienese white crane.
Okinawan Karate styles derived from Uechi Ryu are broadly speaking White Crane derivatives. I have no idea about the rest.!!RENT SPACE HERE FOR 10 VBUCKS PER LINE PER MONTH!!
