The art of Baguazhang is among the most difficult internal arts, Shifu Ripski has been training in Ba Gua since 2003 and has visited and trained under several different teachers. He currently teaches two styles of Bagua, Cheng and Ba Xian (8 Immortals) while also dabbling in Yin Fu bagua with his gongfu brother Kevin Wallbridge.
Cheng Style baguazhang is based on shuai jiao concepts (chinese wrestling) and a great deal of shen fa (body method) training to allow the practitioner to remain mobile while rooted and powerful. Unbalancing the opponent, limb destruction and throwing to the earth are its major methods.
The Cheng Bagua Curriculum includes Fu Zhu Gong Fa (Supplemental training methods, usually kept secret), the Small 8 Palms exercises, the big 8 palm changes, mother palms qigong and the small gate opening form (bagua xiao kai men zhang) as well as weapons (Deer horn knives and jian).
Ba Xian Baguazhang includes training in Fu Zhu Gong Fa, 8 mother palms qigong, 8 immortals palm changes, 9 palace spear (flute rises from the li river), Sword and fly whisk (doing shores while demons attack) among others. Its fighting method is a combination of Cheng style wrestling and Yin Fu style piercing methods.
