Li Family Jiulong Baguazhang

Are you interested in realistic Baguazhang applications without all the fancy impractical movements? A method devoid of all the mumbo jumbo and mystical pseudo-scientific explanations? If so you have come to the right place.

This award winning timeless series filmed in Hollywood in 1994 features Dr. John Painter’s concepts for using the unique Li family Baguazhang known as Jiulong Baguazhang / Nine Dragon Eight Diagram Palm Boxing as a self-defense method.

These practical street proven tactics are filmed at actual combat speed, and then broken down to show each principle and technique used in the Eight Palms of Baguazhang. See Dr. Painter dealing with real street fighters, boxers and other martial artists as he shows you hand to hand methods, throwing, locking and defending against multiple opponents, clubs and edged weapons. No theory here, this series is a part of the training used by The American Rangers Law Enforcement Training Institute to train corrections officers, Sheriff Officers, Police and Military.

There are no impractical, fancy modern Wushu demonstration forms. What you will find here is modern interpretations of realistic training methods using the ancient art of Baguazhang as used by Chinese professional bodyguards(Baobiao) and palace guards who protected the emperor and empress of China. Many of these same methods are used today by the Chinese Special Forces and police.

Dr John. Painter is a Captain (commanding officer) in the American Rangers Law Enforcement Training Institute overseeing the training of professional law enforcement trainers in the United States, Canada, Israel and the UK. If you are looking for honest, proven methods taught in a straight forward manner then this series is for you!

Even if you are a student of another style of Baguazhang we strongly urge you to begin with the basic training (jibengong) presented in volume 1. Basic Training Principles as many of the ideas and tactics will almost assuredly be entirely new to you.
