Legacy of the Chinese Fighting Masters -

Paul Rogers and the Bagua Boy

 

            Episodes One and Two

 

 

These unique documentary films reveal the life story and teaching of Paul Rogers, an English martial arts expert who has spent three decades studying as the closed-door student of the old generation of internal fighting masters in Malaysia and in Tianjin, north China.

 

The films explain the inner principles, forms, training methods, fighting techniques and history of Wu style Taijiquan, Baguazhang, Xingyiquan and Yi Quan, combining personal interviews, technical demonstrations and hands-on applications with the interviewer Alex Kozma.

 

These first two films also recount the story of Paul's 12 year old son Coltrane, the Bagua boy, who has trained Baguazhang since the age of 5.

 

These are the first two in a projected series of films with this highly skilled fighting expert.

 

There is nothing comparable on the market, these are films for those seeking depth of principle, clarity of form and real useage, and the fascinating historical and cultural context within which these powerful arts have been nurtured.

Films by Alex Kozma, available to download

 

These films were originally made as study reminders for Alex's students, but due to widespread interest they are now available to all practitioners. We do not believe anyone can learn these arts from films, real learning takes place by studying with a living teacher over a long period of time. However, these films may be useful tools for those practicing already, or who for various reasons cannot see their teacher often.

 

Each Stage is £25
