Say Mun Ba Gua Kuen

Say Mun Baqua Kuen (Four door, eight directional fist) - Second longest form of YKM. I learned this set from Sifu Garry in Sydney. It is one of my favorites, as it seems to combine other sets and adds some great charging footwork, and is a little more athletic to perform. A couple more kicks than normally found in YKM sets, and some interesting stance work.

It's a great-looking, challenging set. I took 3rd place with it in my division doing forms at the International Chinese Martial Arts Championship three years ago.

There's also a lot of good, aggressive moves in that set, too. I can see why it's a favorite.
