Bagua Martial Arts Classes

London Bagua Class

Weekly Classes in London

Classes are held all day Saturday every week at locations close to central London.

We periodically run induction/trial classes, when prospective students can come and try Yin Style Bagua by training with us for a day. These trial classes will focus on the martial arts syllabus of the system and students of all experience levels are welcome, including complete beginners. The classes are open to adults (18+ year olds) only and will teach the following:

  • Isometric strengthening postures
  • Body mechanics to generate power from the whole body and not rely on muscular strength
  • Circle Walking to improve coordination, suppleness, endurance, improve circulation and develop nimble footwork
  • Martial applications of the techniques learnt, with a focus on gaining advantage by use of body mechanics and effective footwork

The main syllabus for each class (often with reference videos) is posted on our Facebook page. In addition to the primary content, the classes also cover other material to provide overall technical and physical development.

What is the nearest Tube station?

Regent's Park on Bakerloo line or Great Portland Street on Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines.

How do I find you in Regent's Park?

From Regent's Park Tube Station
If you are standing at the entrance to Regent’s Park Tube Station with the road in front of you, turn left and then turn right at first set of traffic lights to cross Marylebone Road. Immediately in front of you is a short road called Park Square West at end of which is an entrance to the Park. Go through that entrance and continue along the straight path in front of you until you are about two thirds of the way up this path, turn left and walk across the field. We practise in the under the large pine trees.

From Great Portland Street Tube Station
On exiting the station, with the dual carriageway in front of you, turn left and walk along Marylebone Road until you reach Regent's Park Tube Station and then follow directions as above.

Is there car parking nearby?

Free parking is available on Albany Street (after pedestrian crossing) and on Robert Street (and streets adjoining Robert Street). These streets are to the east of the park and within a few minutes walk from the training location. Parking on the streets along the perimeter of the park is not free and is limited to a few hours.

What should I wear?

Wear clothing and shoes that you would be comfortable training in. We train outdoors, so plan for the weather - it is easier to take a layer off than wishing you had brought one along. In winter months, gloves are highly advisable.

What do you do for lunch?

Most people tend to bring a packed lunch, while some go to the nearby cafes or buy something at the supermarket and bring it back to the park.
