Luo De Xiu is one of the main representatives in Taiwan of the Gao Style of Ba Gua Zhang. Gao is famous for its applications in a straight line. First Luo shows the form and then the fighting usage for each move. The seminar was done in a large room so some of Luo's instruction may be hard to hear. His teaching, though, is brisk and self explanatory. His hands are educated and direct. Luo was a senior student of Hong Yi-Xiang, and studied Gao style with several of Zhang Jun Feng's top people. He also studied under Sun Xi-Kung's student Liu Jian.
