Bagua Chung

Practitioners can now focus their training on any one of the eight martial art styles taught in Oom Yung Doe.

6.) ㅂ바과장 Bagwa Chung (Chinese Style)


Bagwa (aka Bagua or Pakua) as a martial art is based on the theory of continuous change in response to a given situation. It is an internal form of traditional Moo Doe that sharpens reflexes and cultivates the understanding of one’s mind and body. Just as Feng Shui is used as a tool to enhance positive Chi energy throughout one’s home, Bagwa, through movement focuses the positive Chi (energy) within the body, redirecting and removing the negative Chi, harmonizing one’s mind and body.

Bagwa movements, when done correctly, balance and center one’s Chi. Also, through proper training an individual is capable of properly directing their Chi. However, if done incorrectly, the individual may improperly direct their Chi to only certain parts of their body, resulting in an imbalance of Chi, ultimately adversely affecting their body shape. Bagwa is a powerful way to increase one’s Nae Gong, (stored internal strength). Certain masters of Traditional Moo Doe use secret herbal formulas, Be Bang, to accelerate their Bagwa development, to quickly balance their Chi, increase their Nae Gong, and to quickly balance their mind, body, and spirit.

Bagwa Walk is a special, circular walking position derived from the movements of various animals. The Oom Yung line of Bagwa consists of 360 techniques that encompass many different offensive and defensive positions. Bagwa training enables you to move your body like a coiled spring, smoothly and lightly, but with tremendous speed and power. This form includes offensive and defensive movements that develop both internal and external strength. Some of the benefits of Bagwa include:

  • Agility, combined with speed and power
  • Improved offensive and defensive capabilities
  • Tremendous internal and external strength
  • Stronger Immune system
  • Youthful Condition
  • Longevity
  • Increased Chi
  • The development of Nae Gong

6 month training programs are available for students who wish to specialize in one style.

  • Instructors can achieve a master level in one or more of the eight martial arts.
  • Many higher level Oom Yung Doe practitioners (Head International Instructors and Assistant Head International Instructors) have achieved a master level in at least 3 to 5 martial arts.
  • To be recognized as an Oom Yung Doe master, one must attain a master level in all 8 martial arts.
  • Only a Grandmaster of all 8 martial arts is capable of teaching someone to reach a master level.
  • Grandmaster “Iron” Kim is one of the very few, elite practitioners who has ever achieved a master level in 8 complete martial arts throughout the world.

What you have achieved is shown by your ability. Your actual ability represents your true condition. Your condition determines the quality of your life, how much your life has improved.

Throughout history Traditional Moo Doe, true martial arts, has constantly been the target of jealousy and rumors – “The higher the mountain, the stronger the wind”. Traditional Moo Doe has always followed the time proven principle – judge based on what you see. Traditional masters and grandmasters have dedicated their lives to preserve the strength of Traditional Moo Doe. Any martial arts school that has true ability does not have to talk about how good they are, they can show it. Some are swayed by what they hear. Foolishly, they lose their chance to change their condition and improve their life. Remember, life is only once. Do not waste your life.
