Its main characteristic that distinguishes it from other internal martial arts is its Daoist circle walking.
Bagua Zhang is a martial art renowned for fighting multiple attackers as it continuously turns, spirals, and changes direction.
It can be practiced as a longevity cultivation, refining and balancing the Qi. The movements can be practiced slow or fast but always with fluidity.
