Originally published in 1967, Pa-Kua was the West's first look into the esoteric Chinese martial arts. It has been a valued and sought after text ever since. It was put out of print in the 1970s, but since that time interest in the martial arts have continued to skyrocket. Pa-Kua gives an introduction to the little known mystical martial art from China, Pa Kua Chang (also known as Ba Gua Zhang), translated as "Eight Trigram Boxing". Smith describes its history, profiles its great practitioners and gives a series of unique exercises, illustrating the solo practice and their fighting applications.

This is the training manual from the original Monster Martial Art course! You are urged to get the accompanying video. Pa Kua Chang (Eight Trigrams Palm Manuevers) is considered one of the three 'internal sisters' of the martial arts. It creates good health, a long life, and some of the best self defense moves in the world. Butterfly Pa Kua Chang is the matrixing of that art, which is to say that the art has become logical and scientifically correct. The unfortunate truth is that the simple concepts inherent in Pa Kua Chang have become somewhat akin to a Chinese fire drill. It has become an immense labyrinth of twining motions that is difficult to learn, to remember, and especially to apply (in a fight). With this course that all ends. The student is taken step by gradient step through the labyrinth, with the concepts becoming clearer and clearer, and easier and easier to apply. Students will be astounded at how quickly and thoroughly they can learn this unique and important style of self defense. The student is encouraged to avail himself or herself of the first book in this series, 'The Shaolin Butterfly.' About the author: Al Case entered his first dojo in 1967. He lived through the Golden Age of Martial Arts, studying such arts as Kenpo, Karate, Wing Chun, Aikido, Northern Shaolin Ton Toi, Southern Shaolin Fut Ga, and Pa Kua Chang. He became a writer for the magazines in 1981, and had his own column in Inside Karate. He is the originator of Matring Technology and Neutronic Philosophy. His website is MonsterMartialArts(dot)com.

Written by one of the world's greatest living t'ai mantis system teachers, Beyond the Known is about the martial arts quest, and a mediation on the art of discipleship. In a series of parables relating the experiences of an unusually talented but otherwise typical martial artist, it calls for teachers and practitioners of all martial arts to question their motives and goals, to go beyond the superficial dazzle of prizes and awards, beyond repetition of techniques, ultimately to go beyond the known—the ultimate goal of the martial arts. Tri Thong Dang was born in Vietnam and studied under the revered Chiu Chuk-Kai, eighth-generation grandmaster of the Chinese t'ai mantis system. In addition, he was a practitioner of pa kua chang, hsing i ch'uan, qigong, and Yang style tai chi ch'uan. He studied and taught martial arts worldwide and was the author of Toward the Unknown and Beginning T'ai Chi, both from Tuttle Publishing. He was the founder and director, until his death of California's Budo Educational Center. Chapters Include: The false path. A meeting of minds. Beyond the bounds of intellect. A union of hearts. The vitality of the inexpressible. The irrelevance of the instrument of combat. A transformation. The path of duty. Weaving the web of karma. The web is broken. The first lesson. Lam has another lesson. On the pursuit of creativity. And yet another lesson. A master is born.
