The Nine Dragon Baguazhang is so exciting in that it is a proven combat-oriented art. No tournament, flashy ineffective techniques. In fact, there are few techniques. Instead, Dr. Painter dives into the principles behind the Baguazhang, and with an understanding of these principles on can create endless situation-based techniques. For many years I would comb through library martial arts sections, but found the technique-based books impossible to replicate. I open up this book daily, and read anything from two sentences to several chapters, and always leave it inspired and excited to practice.

Volume 1 of this book was very detailed in describing the fundamental basics of this art which is unlike most other typical Americanized Kicking and striking martial arts. I am currently practicing Jiulong Bagua and I have to say it is very difficult to master the concepts, far more so than traditional Hard style Karate (of which I have a Black Belt). Having both Volume one and two of these books has helped me to more deeply understand this "thinking mans" martial art.

Volume one of Dr. Painters book was excellent in rooting the reader in the fundamentals of this art, and this book picks up right where the other book left off giving god examples of applications. Volume two is really required reading if you are serious about learning Bauga. Worth every penny, really a bargain for all that you get with the many illustrations and well edited text.

Dr. Painters books on Combat Bagua are at the top of their class in the martial arts books category of which I have a large library.

If you've always wondered about the secret mysteries of martial arts, this book is for you. I have so many good things to say about this book that I'm not even sure where to begin. Make no mistake - this book is not for everyone. Dr. Painter explores some of the most very fundamental things we do as humans that contribute to our success in martial arts, including many things which we take for granted such as how we stand and walk. To excel in the martial arts, you need to take a step back and re-examine all of your physical habits. If you are looking for cool tricks, this book is not for you. But if you are looking for a truly deep understanding of human body mechanics as relates to speed and power generation, this book is for you. It's not just a bunch of do-it-because-we-always-do-it-that-way - Dr. Painter provides countless scientific studies to back up what he's saying. This is truly a book unlike any other.

For anyone seriously interested in learning internal martial arts applications, volume 2 is the entrance to a goldmine of information for the serious student or very interested reader. While volume 1 provides the body mechanics and internal principles without which the applications do not work, volume 2 give examples of the effectiveness of the art.

Every segment of this book provides information. Starting with understanding combat principles (too close/too far red-yellow-green zone concept, 3 to 1 rule, wedge, et. al.) each segment gives one or two examples of how they work. There are not enough trees in the world to illustrate each and every situation and indeed, students are taught to research each principle on their own to fully understand the feeling behind the theory. In this way, the book is true to how the art is taught, so that any reader understands that this art and its training are geared to prepare you to react to situations using principles rather than memorized movements and techniques.

All in all, a great companion book to volume one and on its own, a fascinating insight into training methods and ideas for the serious martial student.

I read this book with great interest after reading Volume 1. Truly it is a continuation of the first book. There are many elements that I love. The first is Dr. Painter's discussion of strength and agility training. It lent great insight to my own work-out. The second are the "myth-busting" of fairytale martial arts moves, where in many cases he says they MIGHT work in the exact right circumstances, but are not applicable to the street.

My favorite part of this book are the discussions of what street combat is really like, including a brief introduction to the legalities of using one's martial art skill. I think it is impossible to learn combat oriented martial arts without learning from someone with real life experience, which Dr. Painter has. I think no matter what art one practices, this book is an invaluable addition to the Martial Arts library.

I second other comments, I would love to see a 3rd volume!

I liked Volume 2 better than Volume 1.

Dr Painter explains internal power very well.
Not being a mystical force but by intelligent practice of bagua principles. A must for internal arts library.
