12. Xingyiquan-Baguazhang Integration

It is rare to find an older generation taijiquan master who has not studied other internal martial arts styles, especially, ‘form-and-will fist’ (xingyiquan) and ‘eight-trigrams palm' (baguazhang). Approached from a taijiquan core-principles perspective, xingyiquan, with its five-fists, and baguazhang, with its eight-palms, are studied as augmentations of traditional Yang-style Taijiquan technique.
