Two Americans Admitted as 6th Generation Inheritors of Ba Gua Zhang

Fourth Generation Ba Gua instructor Liu Xing Han addresses the group at the ceremony. Fellow Cheng style practitioners Wang Rong Tang and Liang Ke Quan co-officiated the ceremony.

On August 20, 1994, Eric Gulbrandson, 22, and Don Quach, 26, were admitted as 6th generation disciples and "inner door" students of Ba Gua Zhang under John D. Bracy in a special ceremony that took place in Beijing. Bracy's instructor, Liu Xing Han, officiated the ceremony. Liang Ke Quan, Wang Rong Tang and other internal martial arts instructors co-officiated the formal ceremony.

Gulbrandson and Quach have been students of Ba Gua under instructor John Bracy for several years. The "inner door" ceremony marked an end to nearly a month of intense study of special Ba Gua Zhang subjects in Beijing. Their study included long staff, quarter moon knife, and long saber.
