Bagua AIRBENDING Thumb 02 by kaioutei Bagua AIRBENDING Thumb 02 by kaioutei
I wanted to do some Avatar: The Last air bender fan art. After doing some research I found the main complaint with other peoples fan art was "That isn't the actual style they use." So i decided to create some thumbnails.

These are rough thumbnails meant to be used as reference to Kung Fu moves, they are not fighting stances and they are not 100% exact. IE/ Hand positions. Some positions may look strange because the person is moving around.

Kung Fu Style: Baguazhang

Referenced From: random youtube vid, no credit was given to the actual person performing.

Notes: The vid I found was amazing, I am unable to even capture an ounce of the elegance the person performing had.

Also the person is actually walking around in circles as they perform.

This looks like Cheng style Bagua Zhang coming from one of the lines of Cheng Tinghua's sons. Did you use one of master Sun Zhi Jun's videos?
The Bagua Zhang used as the basis for air bending was Jiang Rong Qiao's Bagua Zhang system which is probably the most widely spread Bagua Zhang set.

I used this as a reference for a picture and linked back :) I messed up the pose a bit but didn't realize it until I was pretty far in, but that's okay. Thank you so much for posting these. They are wonderful inspiration - by far the best bending references I've seen around.

Fabulous work! I am permanently disabled, yet have 38 years of Chinese Martial Arts, and am the Lineage Successor of Ho Kuen Ng's Baguazhang system. I am so happy to see BGZ to become so celebrated. My best wishes to you and may art fill you with inspiration and continue to flow from your talented soul.
