Class schedules

Location and schedules for bagua, xingyi, and weapons classes and seminars with Andrea Falk in Quebec city and Victoria, and at the clubs where I am hosted in Guelph, Vancouver, and Winnipeg in Canada, and Basingstoke in the UK. Contact Andrea if a specific contact is not given. I've posted video links within the 'people' pages of demonstrations by the teachers of the styles we teach.

Medicine Hat, Alberta

In Medicine Hat hosted by Medicine Hat Baguazhang Training Group.

I will ask you to come to Winnipeg if you want to train with me. Classes in Winnipeg are 6:00 to 8:00 pm every evening, so there is lots of time for private sessions during the days.

seminar Guelph Jan2020

Seminar January 2020.

In Guelph (Ontario) hosted by Stone Lantern Internal Arts. The coach at Stone Lantern is James Saper.

Seminars are no longer going to be held in Guelph. Thanks to all the covid restrictions, James had to close his kungfu club. We had a good, long run – twice a year, every year, from 2004 to 2020. I hope people keep training what I taught there, and I will miss the regular visits with the southern Ontario people.

You can continue to learn from James in the parks in Guelph. contact James Saper:

seminar Guelph June2018

Bagua, xingyi, and bagua sabre seminars, June 2018


I go to England to ring bells, and while there stay with friends who do martial arts. I’m always happy to do some teaching during the visit (especially since there are no bell practices on Saturday anyway). Times are 10:00 to 4:00 Saturdays and 10:20 to 4:30 Sundays (because of service ringing, 10:40 start if I have a quarter peal attempt at Overton).

Neil Bates


Neil teaches regularly on Saturday mornings 9:30 - 11:00, subject to weather conditions. Contact Neil for location and to make sure there is a class.

Next session with Andrea: 2020, 2021, and 2022 were writeoffs, with covid travel restrictions. Cross your fingers for November 2023.

Bagua (continue to advance in Jiang, Liang, and MaGui) and Xingyiquan (continue with animals, staff, Anshenpao, Eight Moves routine, weapons). 

Bring your sabre, stick, spear, or sword every day, because any nice weather we get we might pull them out (each person works with one style and one weapon each session, it is not a randam grab bag of training).
