八卦轉掌贊藝歌/Bagua Turning Palm's Praising Skill Song

Postby ZERO » Wed Jul 19, 2017 1:57 pm

三角步,打四面;踩八方,穿九宮。

Triangle Step, Strike the Four Sides; Tread the Eight Directions, Penetrate the Nine Palaces.

內圈加外圈,方圓和直趟。
踏撞劈穿轉,晃繞走連環。

Inside the circle plus outside the circle, the perimeter & straight rows. Treading, Crashing, Chopping, Penetrating, & Turning, Swaying, Coiling, Walking, & Interlocking.

無極八卦掌,董公世間傳。
脆快靈活變,剛柔兩相兼。

Wuji Baguazhang, Master Dong passed it on to the world. Crisp, Fast, Agile, & Variable, Hard & Soft both mutually combine.

朝夕勤習練,內外緊相連。
無極溶光華,八卦浩乾坤。

Morning & night diligently study & practice, Inner & Outer firmly link. Wuji overflows with brilliance, Bagua is as vast as Heaven & Earth.
"Perfect happiness is the absence of striving for happiness."

八卦掌交手訣/Baguazhang's Crossing Hands Secret

Postby ZERO » Fri Mar 16, 2018 1:50 pm

八卦奧妙要學真,走穿擰翻人難進。

Bagua's marvelous wonder requires genuine study, people find Walking, Penetrating, Twisting, & Overturning difficult to Enter.

任他巨力來打我,旋轉變化到彼身。

Even if he comes to strike me with tremendous Li, I use Whirling Turning Variations until getting to his body.

未嘗動手門前探,引出他手變化先。

Without ever probing by Moving Hands in front of the Gate, you draw out his Hand Variations first.

走轉動步之法/Walking, Turning, Moving, Stepping Method

Postby ZERO » Sat Oct 27, 2018 1:41 pm

八卦掌以步贏人,進步先進前,退步先退後,跨左先動左足,跨右先動右足,回身先掰步,轉身先扣步。走為百練之祖,百練不如一走,八卦掌即為善走之拳術,于走轉中出招換勢,抽身化影。惟走方能避敵之鋒芒,亦能使人眼花繚亂,避之以實,擊之以虛,奇正相生,故謂之轉掌。

Baguazhang uses Stepping to beat people. Advance Step before advancing forward, Retreat Step before retreating backward. Step across to the left before moving the right foot, step across to the right before moving the left foot. Returning Body first Swing Steps, Turning Body first Hook Steps. Walking is the forefather of one hundred exercises, but one hundred exercises aren't equal to one Walk. Baguazhang is defined as being good at Walking's Boxing Art, it takes Walking & Turning while Issuing Maneuvers & Exchanging Patterns, Escaping Body & Changing Shadow. Only Walking can then avoid the enemy's cutting edge, while also being able to cause people to be confused. Avoid his use of Solidity, & strike him at his Emptiness, Unorthodox & Orthodox mutually generating one another, therefore it is named Turning Palm.
