Feudal Tai Chi Chuan, Bajiquan, and Baguazhang are especially rare arts, so many people who wish to learn are unable to find qualified instructors in their area. Others may seek instruction but cannot commit to regimented time periods each week.
Personal instruction and live training workshops are the optimal way to train. Period. However, before settling on a local McDojo for the sake of convenience, the context of an individual’s training requirements and goals should be addressed. Physiological requirements in terms of neuromuscular coordination, strength, and power, are achievable through methodical solo practice- given that a qualified mentor monitors your progress. Motion patterns/ historical martial routines have a beneficial impact on the musculoskeletal system and the biomechanical performance of any dedicated individual, at any distance. Martial psychology and knowledge know no bounds- we are all connected in our search for self-mastery. Statistically speaking, the odds are beyond favorable for seekers with profound interests in martial arts academic research, or any dedicated individual unnaturally drawn towards geometrically complex fight anatomy- to find success in our Virtual Class Programs.
- as a bonus, we provide distance monitoring for training materials that are either of great value so worth the few bucks, or in most cases, FREE on the public domain.
- for unrealistic fantastical expectations of pugilistic dueling prowess against non-compliant MMA fighters and armed bad guys… it
helps to have a workout buddy to practice techniques on, spar with, and share ideas. It’s also more economical because you can share the cost of quality protective gear, and also share this quote from PubMed: “to date, there has been limited large-scale research on head trauma in MMA. There is thus an urgent need for more studies in this area as CTE can be a chronic and debilitating illness with incapacitating neuropsychiatric sequelae. This case highlights the importance of public awareness of the risks of MMA and the dangers it poses to the brain”.
- it is somewhat disheartening to diligently practice Chinese Renaissance fighting arts in the 21st century… while visualizing completely fictional imagery of ancient masters during a workout session. (Note: reformed by the Chinese Commission for Physical Culture and Sports)

It will serve as an invaluable resource to have a feudal historian monitor your progress. Distance monitoring by Park Front Fighting Arts is biomechanically sound and research-driven. It works well.
*Repeat steps for layering corrections or submit training videos for the next section. Though rare, if you are not improving through the text evaluation of training video submission, a live personal training workshop or video conference session is recommended- after which the Distance Monitoring will provide continued momentum in progress. Live training for true hands-on fight dynamics or nuanced biomechanics is invaluable– it is recommended once a year through private training workshops in Austin TX.
The CTJQ Breakdown: Beijing Gongfu Jia Taijiquan historical routines encompass the Xin Jia 83 System of Chen Fake/ Zhaokui and Cannonfist- the feudal biomechanics and martial strategy are well-preserved. This style of tai chi is regarded as the “battle tank” edition- often slow, boring to watch… yet unsurpassed with its high magnitude of impact forces. Gongfu Jia Chen Taijiquan consists of more complex and obvious internal spiraling, fierce short-range power release, transitions, and dynamic body skill. Beijing Chen utilizes the ancient deductive approach of martial movement, from a single movement to different techniques (refer to pic above). The online training material is from CHEN YU, the direct son of Chen Zhaokui. Chen Zhaokui is the son of Chen Fake- all martial lineages of Chen Taijiquan are from Chen Fake in Beijing. For Taijiquan enthusiasts who seek the original Taijiquan framework pre-dating the two waves of sports modifications since 1928, Gongfu Jia of Chen Yu is recommended.
THE BJQ BREAKDOWN: Wutan Bajiquan’s historical routines are short and sweet, practical, efficient. The ultra-compact system is essentially feudal Military Boxing of armored Chinese Knights or an ancient version of modern Sanda. Liu Yunqiao is the most notable representative in the mid 2Oth century, respected for his fight psychology and artistry. Liu served as the chief instructor of Taiwan 00 agents and often fought in modern British gentleman style attire (refer to pic). The complete system consists of four linear sets (Xiao Baji/ Da Baji/ Linking/ Liu Da Kai). Bajiquan is renowned for segmented and continuous long to short-range bursts of power- brutal with collision, often with elbows, shoulders, and piercing fists.
THE YSB BREAKDOWN: Yin Style Baguazhang historical routines are short sequences of strikes, preserved from military-grade motion patterns of feudal Shaolin. The system remains unparalleled for practicality in urban settings, revered as the “butch” style of Baguazhang. The beauty of this system resides within the complex internal biomechanics, less so in external aesthetics. Practitioners of Yin Style in the past were not only fighters, but physicians with profound knowledge of complex human anatomy. The He Jinbao/ Xie Peiqi documented material contains a total of Fifty Six (56) short sequences for each system- which are extracted/ customized for each individual’s martial requirements and neuromechanics. Yin Style Baguazhang is an art of principle, its programming works similar to learning a new language. One becomes fluent over time and is fully capable of communication without memorizing every vocabulary or textbook example.
