Student level basic curriculum 

There are eight student levels. Each level is represented by its own graphic. We chose these graphics because they are traditional to the Imperial household of China, and Baguazhang has a close relationship with the Imperial households of old. If you read the history page you will find that Dong Haichuan, Yin Fu, and Ma Gui were all part of the Imperial household. They would have been familiar with these designs and would probably have worn them as well. More will be explained on these designs, as well as the Instructor’s designs, in the member’s section. Below are the basic requirements for each level.While Magui Baguazhang does not have traditional ‘ranks’, we have found it necessary to have some form of level identifiers. The reason for this is so that we can ensure students throughout the world are getting the proper training in the proper format and order. This allows the student and teacher to know what information each individual has studied and needs to study.

Bear walking, and Dragon walking. Mastering the basic movements of the hands, eyes, steps, and body

Once you have reached Elementary Level 2 you may then apply to be certified as a Level 1 Instructor. Instructor levels will be represented by different graphics to the student levels. There are no benefits or bonuses to becoming an instructor in Magui Baguazhang, only added responsibilities. To name a few, you have an obligation to not only study the material but also study how to share that material with others. And you have the responsibility to share that information properly. Because of this we have yearly qualification requirements to remain an instructor and ensure that our students worldwide are getting the best training that they can. Only the current linage holder of Magui Baguazhang can award instructor licenses.

A Level 1 Instructor may teach up to Student Basic Level 2.
