Hiding Flower Under Leaf

Hiding Flower Under Leaf is a classic Pa Kua move, found in nearly all systems of Pa Kua. As such, the movements can be learnt, and repeated whilst you walk the circle, but there are subtleties that are easily missed.

Execution of this exercise serves several purposes:

  1. Used in conjunction with the Ko Bu stepping, upper and lower body coordination will be improved.
  2. It stretches the spine, hips and shoulders. Especially if performed correctly.
  3. It develops a strong sense of balance and stability whilst changing direction.
  4. It has a multitude of combat applications.

We present here a sequence so that you can get a flavour of the movements. Of course, we cannot convey many of the details through these photographs. For this you should check out our classes.
