Welcome to the re-release of the Bagua Mastery Program, the most comprehensive learning guide ever created for Bagua.

The lineage of this program was passed down over thousands of years from Master to student in China, where I learned it from Master Liu Hung Chieh.

As an American kid from New York, I know his decision to take me on as a student was not an easy one - but I believe his decision to be prophetic. The world needs Bagua, now more than ever.

No man can argue that we’ve seen some incredible advancements in modern times. As a society, we have accomplished incredible feats in the name of technology and production.

But as we collectively ‘hunch’ over computers for long periods of time... Sit under artificial lights… Worry over deadlines… Stress about the family... And over-stimulate our nervous systems with coffee and unnatural foods…

I must ask... Are we to forgo health, strength and peace of mind in the name of progress?

Are we to be resigned to ill-health, pain, worry and anxiety?

Must you accept body aches, pains, and stress as inevitable?

Or will you take Action? Seek Truth? And Re-discover Vitality?

I invite you to be one of the few who finds renewed strength in the living art of Bagua.

Frankly, it’s concerning to me how many people accept mediocrity into their lives without question, but you need not be one of these people.

This is not a diatribe against modern society or the West, this is a Call for you to become something Greater. To Become Powerful. Strong. And Vital.

Bagua will help counteract the heaviness of everyday stress, anxiety and frustration, so that you can thrive.

Bagua speaks a universal language at the center of every man and woman that is coded into your DNA...

Monks of a forgotten time imprinted this code into the text of the I-Ching: Book of Changes and perfected circular meditative movements designed to enhance human evolution.

Over time, Bagua has evolved to include potent martial arts moves that served as the primary fighting method for the Guards to the Chinese Dynasty.

Whatever the reason you choose Bagua, you’ll recognize its power in the form of better health, increased flexibility, elevated Chi, expanded awareness and great strength.

I look forward to hearing from you in the Bagua Mastery community as you begin to clear energetic blockages and awaken to your innate internal power.

Everything furthers,

Bruce Frantzis

Founder, Energy Arts Inc.

"The power of the eight diagram palms knows no bounds -- the palms seem to strike even before the hands move. When the hand threads upward, it's like a hundred birds paying tribute to the phoenix; when it threads forward, it's like a tiger swooping downhill. Walking round and round, he is like a stray wild goose that has drifted from the flock; but when the palms are thrust forward, they can move a mountain. Now dodging, now ducking, his body slithers in and out; using the opponent's force he delivers a counter, blow, with as little effort as pushing a boat down the stream." -Dong Haichuan, Founder of Baguazhang.

Living The Art of Ancient Bagua

"Bruce Frantzis is the successor and inheritor of Lao Tse's Water method of Taoist meditation passed down by his teacher, Liu Hung Chieh. Frantzis presents a uniquely experiential approach to the I Ching as a living manual on how change manifests at all levels of existence. Frantzis' ability to communicate his comprehensive understanding of the health, fighting and mediation aspects of bagua allows the student to experience in body, mind and spirit, the profound embodied wisdom of the I Ching's spiritual vision."

- Dr. Alan Peatfield, Ph.D., Lecturer in Archaeology at University College Dublin, Ireland

Energetic Origins of Bagua

The I Ching, Book of Changes, and the 8 Trigrams

Deep within the Kunlun Mountains records have been found in monasteries that are over 4,000 years old. They tell of Taoist monks who would hold various mudras (specific hand shapes) and recite mantras (prayers and incantations) while walking in circular patterns.

Bagua is said to be descended from these original practices and recorded in the I-Ching: Book of Changes. The 8 elemental trigrams are represented in the form of a Single Palm Change, which is the basis of the Bagua Mastery Program.

The 8 Elemental Trigrams

Heaven | Lake | Fire | Thunder | Wind | Water | Mountain | Earth

Walking the Circle

Walking the Circle creates a vortex of energy that builds to empower and strengthen you, while helping to create a 360-degree awareness.

This sphere of energy is ideal for martial arts and fighting applications, but it also taps into a higher vibrational state that quiets the mind and generates a new perception of time.

Palm Changes and the Single Palm Change

The various combinations of arm movements in bagua are called palm changes.

The most important and foundational palm change is the Single Palm Change because it incorporates every element of the trigram and allows for seamless transitions between movements.

Holding the palm posture of the Single Palm Change while Walking the Circle is how you focus chi, transfer energy, reduce stress, and build incredible strength.

Bagua as a Powerful Spiritual Practice

The I-Ching contains two and half millennia of spiritual wisdom within its pages and Bagua represents this wisdom in physical form.

Only direct experience with advanced Bagua is adequate to truly know the spiritual power of the practice. Words always fail in comparison…

My promise to you is that the Bagua Mastery Program provides a complete condominium all that my Bagua lineage holds, so that you may one day experience the Power.

PLUS, You Will Receive These
Special Bonuses if You Buy Today:

Bonus #1                     Bruce's Tai Chi & Bagua Book

Discover the Taoist chi practices that power the internal martial arts of bagua and tai chi. Inside the slow-motion movements of tai chi is a sophisticated mind/body/spirit practice. Derived from the I Ching (Book of Changes), bagua is unique in its circular movements, spiraling energy, and unpredictable changes of direction. At the core of both of these arts lie practical ways to understand change and how energy flows within the universe.

Drawing on insights from his main teacher, Lineage Master Liu Hung Chieh of Beijing, China, Bruce reveals how how you can use these powerful arts to:

  • Promote vibrant health and well-being
  • Build chi power for fighting applications
  • Cultivate meditative awareness
  • Relax all aspects of your being
  • Flow smoothly with change

Bonus #2                       Taoist Breathing for Tai Chi & Meditation Audio

Bruce  Frantzis developed his Taoist Longevity Breathing® Program from traditional Taoist breathing methods that he acquired in his 40 years as a martial artist, chi master, Taoist priest and energetic healer.  Learn how to get more from each breath with simple exercises that can be practiced at any time. The Taoist Breathing for Tai Chi and Meditation 2-CD set will help you begin the process of breathing smoothly, evenly and strongly.

Learn to work with the energies of your physical and etheric bodies by incorporating some neigong components, such as body alignments and breathing methods.

Bagua Circle Walking Meditations will help you experience that which is written in the I Ching, including:

  • The presence of constant change in the universe.
  • The need to retain your balance when presented with change.
  • The ability to flow with change and find a place of stillness and balance as change occurs.

Bonus #3                      Bagua Circle Walking Meditations [VALUE: $249]

If you want your bagua practice to reach to the sky, then you must grow your roots very deep.

When you begin Bagua Circle Walking your focus will be upon proper execution, which will give you all the attendant benefits of a strong and healthy body.

As this occurs, and as a natural development or continuum, Bagua Circle Walking will set the foundation for a deep meditation practice.

This collection of meditations recorded from our annual Summer Training Intensives in Ibiza in 2016 will deepen your understanding of the meditative aspect of Bagua.

When Bagua Circle Walking alone is learned for spiritual purposes, it is commonly done for a few months to a year before you learn how to put your arms into the air. This trains your physical body to become stable and balanced while doing bagua.

Your goal in bagua zhang is to smoothly change direction and speed, or go from movement to stillness and back again—all without losing awareness. The Taoists say that if you can maintain uninterrupted and complete awareness from the time it takes a leaf to fall from a tree and flutter down to the ground, you will be enlightened.

"Bagua as a movement and spiritual art can take you on an extraordinary journey. This program, consisting of comprehensive print, audio and video instruction as well as in-depth guided meditation practices was traditionally only taught to students within the inner gate of Taoism. You can use this program to take your bagua skill to the highest level possible - whether you're just staring out or you've practiced bagua for decades." - Bruce Frantzis

What Others Are Saying...

Lee Burkins

My practice of Ba Gua Zhang over these last two decades with Master Bruce Frantzis has given me a depth of understanding and tactile experience with martial art and a profound discovery of how to be a human being in an ever changing world. Ba Gua helped release the rigidity of my body and mind to reveal the empiricism of what one may call the Soul’s cosmic connection to the ever flowing force of life that we all exist in.” 

Lee Burkins Colorado Martial Arts

“In every seminar with Bruce we are always impressed how much deep and valuable material he is presenting in a down to earth, practical and understandable way. We highly can recommend his teachings.”

Senior instructors of Energy Arts, practitioners of Martial Arts, Qigong and Tai Chi for more than 20 years.

“When I met Bruce Frantzis in 1997 I already had studied martial arts from the age of twelve. Impressed by his teaching and his deep knowledge in the martial arts and energy work I decided to continue studying with him since that time. For my further development in the martial arts this was a very big step.  With the launch of this new program Bruce is offering one more possibility of passing down his knowledge.”

Olaf Rolving Zendocan
Bill Ryan

Some thirty years ago, a whirlwind martial artist named Bruce Frantzis introduced me to the arts of bagua and tai chi and revealed how they support and enhance one another. As my interests evolved – from martial arts to health and healing to meditation and the Tao – Bruce continuously unveiled for me new possibilities within these arts. There has not been one day in the past 30 years that I haven’t been amazed by and deeply grateful for the depth and vastness of Bruce’s knowledge, the clarity and openness with which he teaches, and his dedication to pass on these arts at the highest levels possible to new generations of practitioners.”

Bill Ryan Toward Harmony Tai Chi & Qigong, Northampton, Massachusetts, USA
Dan Kleiman

“Over the years I have primarily studied qigong and meditation with Bruce, so whenever I have the chance to learn bagua from him directly, I’m thrilled that I can pour all of the internal work he teaches in other contexts into a circle-walking practice. Doing ba gua enhances the other areas of my practice and working with different speeds and changes has helped me access things inside that I probably never would have otherwise.”

Dan Kleiman Brookline Tai Chi
Patrick Foley and Jane Launchbury

Bruce Frantzis has a unique way of teaching that goes to the very core of your being, whether you are learning internal arts for fighting, health, or spiritual development. He is a true catalyst, bringing about dynamic changes to your physical body, chi, mind and spirit as your skills increase. Generous and compassionate, he communicates from the heart and is appropriately challenging on every level!

Patrick Foley and Jane Launchbury have studied with Bruce and his Senior Instructor Brian Cooper since 1991.

“The Art of Bagua has helped me to fill in the gaps in order to come to a deeper understanding for the Art of Aikido. In Practicing the Circle Walking of Bagua, I can focus on developing the inner capacities of my body.  By learning the neigong (nei gung) of Bagua I have discovered the neigong of Aikido.” 

Anita Köhler 5th Dan Aikikai
Richard Shapiro

“I have had the privelege of studying with bruce over the last 8 years. Bruce is a true treasure of Taoism in the west. His teachings have been essential in my developing an understanding and practical ability in the internal martial arts, healing and meditation. He helped me understand how they function and how they interrelate.  He really gets this stuff, and he helps others to really get it, too. For people who are seriously interested in developing their own internal capacities as far as they can go, the Bagua Mastery Program is going to be invaluable, whether you study tai chi, bagua, any martial art, any healing method, any meditation tradition, or would just like more tools to live life well. It’s just that good.”
