Bajiquan Videos

Here are some more baijiquan 八極拳 videos from Youtube.

A sparring routine used to practise application (and response).

Matsuda Ryuchi 松田隆智 performing bajiquan. He is the author of the comic Kenji 拳児, which is a comic about a person's bajiquan learning journey.

This is the competition form used for wushu competitions nowadays.

Some parts look like Hsing I.
What is the background of this form?

It is more explosive than Xingyiquan, though I feel that xingyiquan looks more stable.

Each has their own different styles, their own principles (though they may share some common ones). But at the end of the day, it is not the style that is good, but rather how well/hard the practitioner trains.
