Hello All,

As the title states, can anyone refer me to a Ba gua/Xing yi teacher in the CT/MA area. I read the existing thread here but there was only one reccomendation. Are there any others???

depends on where in CT/MA

I study bagua in SECT
I know there is a guy in Norwalk/Orange that teachs it. Don't know anything anout him.

If on that side of CT, well NYC is not that far away. Lots of good options there.

Some good options up near Boston as well.

Thanks for the replies,

I'm in the Hartford CT Springfield MA area.

I've contacted Buddy trip from Brighton MA and
intend to go and check his class out. He's about
an hour away, it would sure be nice to find someone
closer but I'll take quality over distance any day.

Yin Style Baguazhang is very martial and is taught in New Britain at the Circle of Life Tai Chi Chuan school. The Sifu is very skilled and officially recognized by the lineage holder of Yin Fu Baguazhang in Beijing, He Jinbao. (BTW, the holder is in Massachusetts, Vt., CT every Fall for workshops). The art is highly respected in Beijing by the martial arts community and you'll see why once you work it a little. The school and Bagua brothers have/promote a friendly, mature, respectful, inclusive atmosphere where ego is checked at the door. If hard work toward progress in a very effective martial art interests you, you've found an option in Connecticut!

I'm in Eastern CT, but would be interested in meeting you guys and learning what Yin style is about.
