This is a 192 page, 6x9" paperback book on the old eight changes of Jiang style that includes 222 inset figures and 135 photographs. Chinese characters and pinyin given for all movement names.
I translated this book in 1989, sold it in cerlox format until 2001, when I had it properly bound. I took the photos in Shanghai, which add greatly to the original book's excellence. The photographs were digitized directly from negatives, so are crystal clear. The photographs are of my martial elder brother, Cai Yuhua. We perform the same style as in the book, as taught by Huan Dahai, who learned directly from Jiang Rongqiao. There are minor differences between the images and the photos, which helps to make things more interesting.
The book is fairly light and thin, so the postage cost isn't too bad.

Comments on Jiang Rongqiao's Baguazhang and Andrea's translation
"Your translation of Jiang Rongqiao's Baguazhang is superb. Thanks for making it available in English. I am of Chinese descent myself but can't speak any Chinese." Robert I.., England
"I've just received the package of Jiang Rongqiao's Baguazhang Book, VCD, translation, and Adobe still shots. What a lovely combo! I already have a dog-eared version of your book but I'm glad you've made the changes that you did to the new version. Job well done! Thanks again for really superior, pains-taking quality products, service and attitude." Andrew Watts
"[The Jiang Rongqiao book] is an extremely useful reference as I am learning the form in class. The photographs are clear and reinforce the excellent drawings." Lewis Rivera, IL
"... I had ordered the same [Jiang Rongqiao and Yan Dehua] baguazhang books before. But, I lent them to a friend, and he liked them so much that I finally decided to buy another set. The works you have translated and put together are high quality and worth the cost, unlike some other materials I have seen." Scott Freeman, Japan.
"Just wanted to drop you a line to say that the [Jiang Rongqiao] book arrived today. Thank you very much. Your translation and adaptation of the book is excellent on my first fast pass. Thanks again." Greg Buckles
"I was really amazed at the detail and effort you went through to put this [Jiang Rongqiao book] work together. While I found the drawings helpful, I really liked the photographs of your kung fu brother doing the various palm changes." Mark Baker, South Carolina
"The (Jiang) book is an excellent addition to my collection and invaluable as a reference tool. It is fascinating having finished the eight palm changes to go through the book and pick out the subtle differences in emphasis imparted by various teachers.... Great work, keep it up and thanks again." Neil Bates, Hampshire, England.
"Just received (Jiang Rongqiao) book and it's excellent! Excellent translation, descriptions and pics." Christain Wilby, England
