: Hey im doing a report and i need to know ALOT about Ci Xi,...if ya know stuff...send it to me...thanx
I know her Body guard was named Yin Fu, and was the co-founder of one of China's most known Martial arts styles, Bagua Zhang.
His teacer Dong Heichuan origianlly developed it and he [Yin Fu] and his classmate Cheng Ting Hu each developed their own brances of the art. These two brances eventually gave birth to many other branches of Bagua Zhang, and the art is now spread all over the world.
It is an incredibally powerful fighting style that specialises in using circular motion and stepping patterns. Bagua has some of the most advanced and effective footwork in the entire martial arts world. It was often taught to professional body guards during the late 1800's and early 1900's
