Not seen as a style itself but rather it is considered as one of the two Chinese Martial Arts training and is often taught alongside taolu (forms) training.. This curriculum was developed with the Chinese military experiences in close range and hand to hand combat with reference to traditional Chinese martial arts.
Bagua Zhang is one of the three orthodox internal styles of Chinese martial arts (the other two being Xingyi and Tai Ji). 'Ba Gua' translates to eight trigrams, 'Zhang' means palm and designates Bagua as a style of martial arts, which emphasizes the use of the open hand in preference to the closed fist.
Xingyi is known as one of the excellent traditional Chinese internal styles, emphasizing not only on training the body but also the mind. Xingyi focuses on the unity between the external form and internal energy.
