As a martial arts form, Da Bei Quan is characterized by softy flowing movements and deep body articulation. Though aesthetically similar to Tai Ji Quan and yoga, the moves in Da Bei Quan are based in a completely different martial art form and have a very different foundational vocabulary. The practice of Da Bei Quan stretches the tendons while relaxing the joints resulting in a truly pleasant and powerful training experience.
