This Is NOT "Pa Kua"

In my local paper, The Boulder Daily Camera, there was an article on "Pa Kua International". This was not the Bagua Zhang the martial art that i know and love and have spent 10 years + of my life studying but a strange amalgamation of various martial arts and spiritualism. With some circle walking thrown in for good measure.

This is the "stuff" that gives Traditional Chinese Martial Arts a bad name. It is Ok for what it is (Karate?), but don't call it something it is not (Pa Kua Chang/ Bagua Zhang)for the sake of marketing.
