The Bohua Chinese School (Bohua) was founded in 1995 in Boulder, Colorado, by a group of Chinese students and scholars. Its initial purpose was teaching Chinese language to children of the local Chinese community composed of students and visiting scholars, working professionals, and other Chinese immigrants. The first semester started in the fall of 1995, and three classes were offered: Kindergarten, Basic Chinese, and Advanced Chinese. For more information, please email

Ba Gua Zhang
According to He Jinbao, Yin style baguazhang was founded by Dong Haichuan’s senior student, Yin Fu. It has precise theory and methods, a well-knit structure, abundant content and a strong technical quality. The fighting theory, postures, usage, outward appearance, and internal developmental methods all originate from and accord with the Book of Changes. The linage of Baguazhang that we practice was handed down from Dong Haichuan to Yin Fu. His linage holder was Men Baozhen. From Men the art was left in the hands of his student Xie Peiqi. After Dr. Xie's death in 2003 He Jinbao took the reins as the lineage holder of Yin Style Baguazhang. The Boulder study group is lead by Jack Schaefer, a practitioner of Chinese medicine and lifelong student of the martial arts. Jack makes yearly trips to study and has worked directly with Xie Peiqi and He Jinabao. For mor information visit the Yin Style bagua website at or the Association For Traditional Studies at You may also contact Jack directly at 303-667-4338.
