What is Kun Tao Pa Kua Chang?

Secrets of the Old Kung Fu Masters.

Kun Tao is old hand Kung Fu from the temples & family systems of China that began migrating to the spice islands in the 1200′s.

In order to survive alongside the vicious arts of Pentjak Silat, Kun Tao masters had to refine their art to its core & focus only on the most effective & powerful fighting methods. As a result Kun Tao was rarely taught to non-family members & almost never taught to non-Chinese.

Kun Tao styles are lethal with a unique & unmistakable expressive explosiveness. Methods tend to use devastating internal power combined with the advanced timing and movement necessary for survival against aggressive groups of attackers.

Kun Tao Bagua Zhang

As soon as a threat presents itself Bagua delivers devastating hand strikes while taking evasionary action.

The specialty of Bagua is in defeating multiple opponents and so evasion, timing & positioning skills are all highly refined. Even aggressive arts like Xing Yi and other Kun Tao styles will find the Bagua practitioner difficult to hit.

Bagua is quite diverse and there are many different styles, moves and patterns to be found in the art including many different internal training methods and energy palms such as iron palm, vibrating palm, poison hand, penetrating palm, crushing palm and more.

Bagua is very popular and well respected in Java where the art was refined and honed due to the bladed nature of Indonesian culture.

When seriously attacked by a group of knife wielding assailants you either move well or you die.

Richard Clear

Sigung Clear has studied Ba Gua since 1981.

His studies include learning several different family systems of Bagua including studying in mainland China from lineage inheritors of the system in Beijing, Tianjin and Shanghai.

Sigung Clear’s Kun Tao Silat teacher is Willem de Thouars who studied directly from Buck Chen. Willem de Thouars Bagua is very combat efficient and it is as beautiful as it is deadly.



This program will teach you how to use Bagua and how to develop the Internal Power & Skill a good Bagua fighter should have.

We will NOT spend a lot of time on forms or on the technical basics you can easily learn from any other Ba Gua program out there.

In fact the vast majority of this program is taught using 3 things:

  • Circle Walking
  • Single Palm & Single Palm Change
  • Double Palm & Double Palm Change

Training Partners

Bagua designed from the ground up for at least 6 – 8 attackers.

You will need at least 4 training partners to practice the drills and gain the skills taught in this program.

If you do not have 4 training partners you can begin with less. However it is absolutely necessary to build a study group of at least 5 or 6 people as quickly as possible if you want to truly develop the skill that any decent Ba Gua player should have
